The good...the bad...and the downright ugly!

Cold and clear and calm said the forecast. What could be better for a 65 minute cruise up to the wide, or 'big' section of Lough Erne.  (Quotation marks not intended to confuse). We needn't worry about the line on the chart warning of rough seas in strong winds.

 I feel you are all ahead of me. 

You could see the storm advancing and it wasn't a pretty sight. QISMA does so well but, hardly able to see the 20 yards ahead, we had no choice but to ride it out. 20 minutes behind schedule we arrived at Castle Archdale in flat sea and bright sunshine.

Alternative name for this post...never trust the forecasts.
