Keep my boat in a busy walled harbour and raise the main, if I,m going far, as soon as I,m clear.
Boats on the moorings in Skerries bay generally raise the main, then motor into clearer water beyond the reef marker before sailing. It can be dangerous to sail off at times with wind and /or tide pushing towards the beech, the rocks or the reef.
Safe sailing
