Got going on Tuesday Evening and managed to round Slyne Head with big swell thundering on the near reefs. Camped that night under Slyne Head.

Wednesday Morning headed off to Friar Island.
Had lunch in shelter from brisk winds.
Paddled onto Inis Bofin making good time with a nice steady southerly wind at my back, surfing my way there.
Calm and peaceful camp there that night.

Woke up Thursday Morning not able to see more than twenty metres in thick sea fog. Navigation, sea charts and compass all put to use!

Stopped off on Inis Turk for lunch, then onto Clare Island for a nice welcome from good friends, Niall and Luna. A few pints of Guinness later, some good food and a 'leaba' to put my head down.

Heading for Achill and then Belmullet today...
