Likewise Alex, good luck to yourself and the others for the rest of the journey.

The seas around the Mull of Kintyre were challenging and even once in more sheltered conditions the visibility was difficult once darkness fell and the rain started.

Navigation through the islands / rocks using the rain as a direction finder wasn't possible as it was horizontal ; we had to make do with electronic and paper charts including AIS and radar. With most lights off in the cabin and speed slowed to 12 knots we made safe and steady progress through the islands to Craobh haven.
