Tuesday

We decided to make a break for it and head around Hook Head to Waterford. Force 6s and 7s were forecast for the evening, so tucking up in Waterford was preferable to a lumpy night at Dunmore East.

The waves were big and confused and we had quite a lot of green water on the foredeck.

Testa Rossa followed us out and was well reefed.

We got to the Hook lighthouse, avoiding the over falls and caught the tide up to Waterford.

It was a shame the weather had changed to rain as we passed Passage East, where my sister Libby lives, the photos are decidedly grey!

From Hook Head up to Waterford is 12 miles and when we eventually got there we moored up on a pontoon which is right in the middle of the city.
