Back to Bofin
It's a while since we stopped in Inishbofin. We'd like to have stayed a while but we decided we'd push to get home before the forecast gale on Saturday. It was now more of a delivery than a cruise. So despite the northerly wind, we made for Inishbofin only 1which would make the last day quite reasonable. The wind was supposed to be 10-15 knots, no more, but instead it was 15-20kts and we bashed our way to Bofin under power. It was lovely to enter a nice quiet settled harbour.
We found an anchoring spot that was perfect and avoided the multitudinous mooring balls, none of which was a visitor mooring. We had 25 feet of water out from the ferry channel, perfect at low water. New favourite anchoring spot in this harbour.
We went ashore for dinner at Day's and had crab sandwiches on brown bread and a nice ale made especially for them by a microbrewery. Lots of locals, few tourists jammed the pub that day. The season is coming to a close. As usual here, we had a glorious sunset. Back to the boat and on to Clew Bay in the morning.
