Sailing to the west of Great Cumbrae
Whilst down below preparing some lunch I glanced up to see what looked like an interesting hazard, rocks with waves breaking over them. The rocks appeared to be marked by an odd looking tower. Closer inspection revealed a submarine heading south out of the Firth of Clyde. It was a fine sight with a fast rib leading the way and police escort boat in close attendance.

It was a beautiful day and the water to the west of Great Cumbrae was more sheltered. We spotted Bell Bay and decided to put our hook down for a couple of hours before heading off to Largs for the night.

Later, after we had gone to bed, we received the sad news that Rob's mum had passed away. The next day we would be heading home.
