The briefing after brunch tells us that we will head initially for Domineer. The RNLI rib arrives for a coffee but they get a call-out to Inishcealtra where a hire cruiser has run aground.

The fleet leaves and we meet suprisingly John on his vega1447 crossing ahead in a northerly breeze on the wavy surface around the black buoy C.

Then we enjoy again some noodling on 'Tanjuan'. Again 'Vera Skilton', the RNLI rescue boat, crosses our path; they had a second call-out today.

Back at Dromineer Fergal decides to go ahead to check the wind conditions in Black Lough where we intend to anchor overnight. Willi joins him on 'Tanjuan'. 'Chang Sha' is the first boat which Fergal brings in, then the other five follow.
