Darwin200 day 20: leaving Skye

Another beautiful morning aboard the Pelican of London.

We’ve set sail to head North through the Minch, where we’ll watch out for the blue men of the sea calling… the stories of the Selkie.

The plan is to sail around the northern coast of Scotland and reach the more sheltered waters of the east coast before the next Atlantic lows roll through bringing strong winds.

For now, we’re setting more sail!

Cetacean surveys will be our main focus on the science side, while all hands on deck are required for sailing the ship safely.

Looking out for cetaceans I’m the driving rain of the early evening requires dedication!
