Having just flown over all the islands I can confirm the sea state is moderate. There is enough of a breeze at the moment to make sailing exciting.

RIBase
Tender and engine on board, camping kit onboard, route planned...all set to go! Just can't decide when...75nm...conservatively at 20 knts if it is hard going = 3.75 hours. Which, if I wish to arrive before 13:00 means leaving at 9:15...which means getting up early....

And that's before even thinking about the hours difference..
