Eddystone Lighthouse

Saturday 28 August was a great day sail to the Eddystone Lighthouse. The wind was light NE to start with but increased and became a little more Easterly as we headed further offshore. Speed through the water was generally between 6 – 7 knots with winds between Force 4 – 5. On the way out we saw two pods of dolphins and the arched back and fin of what may have been a pilot whale (but I can’t be sure as the sighting was brief). Despite having the mackerel line out all the way to the Lighthouse and back (it was hauled in when the dolphins were in sight), no fish were caught – just lumps of seaweed!
