Onto Kippford.

After the experience of Stranraer it was good to go round the Mull of Galloway aiming for Kippford. Ti Gitu spent one night at anchor in Maryport bay before making up to Kirkcudbright where there is a long pontoon for visiting yachts.
Kirkcudbright is a popular stop for yachts and rightly so. The first night there the town had display and some of the town was closed off. We had a pleasant time watching the displays and marching bands.
After a few days there was bad weather forecast but we needed to get along to Kippford for the Junk Rig rally at the weekend, so we left on the Thursday and had a hard beat out of Kirkcudbright and the a fast and frillin ride along to Kippford.
After a difficult night on the Thursday on the yacht club pontoon things settled down for the weekend when Ti Gitu and Badger, the only boats to arrive, took people our for them to try the rig.
It was a successful weekend but tiring for the crew, however on the Monday as it was our wedding anniversary we decided to sail to the Isle of Man for a couple of nights and go out for a meal.
That was until we found the marina prices had doubled in two years. Read the next post!!!
