The southerly wind increases a bit as we follow 'Breakaway' on the lake and watch John's sailing manoeuvres.

After a slack it again picks up and Breakaway is fast surfing when we reach Kilgarvan. We need a lot of diesel to be the first one at the entrance.

Here we have lunch break. After that John starts sailing back against the more and more increasing wind. We go in the other direction and moor at Terryglass behind 'Knocknagow'. Brian and Anne come later along for a chat.
