At 0815 on 16th May we departed our anchorage off Vatersay. The wind was NNW 8-10 knots and the sky held only scattered clouds, clearing as the front moved off.
We had a great sail north to Lochboisdale. Loads of birds. Several seals. Occasional sunshine!

|Zen Again in Lochboisdale Marina|
We secured Zen Again in a pen and arranged a taxi to take us shopping. The taxi driver was a local and very friendly. We paid him to take us on a short tour of South Uist island after we completed our shopping. This included a stop at the Politician pub, named after the cargo ship which went aground nearby with a cargo of whisky. Whisky Galore!
It was very interesting seeing the hinterland and learning about the island from a man born and bread there. Good to meet you Alistair!
