'Not the Best Day to Sail'

Ian Fraser commented on Twitter that this was 'not the best day to sail.' His understatement is backed by the quiet tone of the report in The Orcadian. Here was a 90-minute ferry-journey that started yesterday morning at 10.05 in Scrabster, Caithness, and which will possibly end at Stromness, Orkney, within 24 hours. However, it's likely to be longer with all dependent on the winds.

Thanks for this John. Quite sobering. This is what going to the Antarctic was like in 700 tonne vessels.
