Further plotting and scheming
Well, the weather forecast seems to have settled out and it’s looking good. For one thing, we have solid Northeasterly winds for the entire four day period, so I can pretty much do a straight close-hauled run for the first leg, given the Forth runs East-West. The Northerly route to Dysart can be done close-reached, and then the long leg back to Limekilns will be a straight training-run back up the Forth in glorious sunshine. On top of that, the wind has risen to force 3-4 gusting 5-6, so it really is perfect sailing weather.
