We left Nairn at 6 am to make sure we could use the channel without grounding. Merida went in front of us and turned towards Inverness and we turned east towards Lossiemouth.
The forecast F3/4 from the east, moderate sea, right on both accounts so another miserable motor into an unpleasant swell.
Only excitement was a mayday call for a boat near Cromarty which had struck an anchor(!). The Invergordon lifeboat attended and the coastguard helicopter which was out on exercise. Oh and also saw some seals.
Otherwise A and I were both feeling a bit green by the time we turned into the Lossiemouth harbour entrance. Found the visitors pontoon, paid our dues and went for a lovely long walk along the beach to Coveseas Skerries Lighthouse - it was good to have some solid ground under our feet.
