36 hours with changing winds but most part of it nice sailing - we arrived at Torshavn harbor during the last hours of the National Day "St. Olav's Eve" - nearly everybody with two legs was in the city, singing

Dublin at night

Still in Dublin - with illuminated neighbours. Waiting for the wind to drop and set sail to Scotland tonight.
