|This looked like a giant pawn from a chess set? Anyone any ideas what it is?|
The lock would not be opening again until the following afternoon. I then had to make a decision on where to go and by now the wind had really picked up and so had the sea swell.
I made the decision to go south again; to Liverpool. With a force 7 now blowing I reefed in the sails (reduced their size) and set off. Brown Eyes really did take a hammering as the swell increased, but she fought on well and we made it to the entrance channel to Liverpool. The massive wind turbines were quite confusing as they didn’t appear on any of my charts, but they were mentioned in the yachting almanac so I knew which way to go.
