Wondered if anyone has tried to get to the Mediterranean
from NW Scotland
by sailing West around Ireland
in a small cruising cat ... preferably, without ending up in Madeira
, the Canaries
or the Azores
en route! Could appropriate weather
windows avoiding Irish lee shores be a problem?
On the other hand, it might be possible to take the scenic route
, day sailing
or making short overnight passages down the Coast. One might then have a choice of routes around or across the Bay of Biscay!
Interested to hear your thoughts on this possibility, especially, if you have actually sailed this route
without crossing the Atlantic or even just worked your way down the West Coast
. Thanks for your input.
