Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk set out on their Wayfarer 397 “Chich” for a cruise from Killarney to Killbear from August 4 – 11, 2020.

Sue’s Dad and three other solo sailors braved this trip up the small craft channel in 1979. They pulled their 11 foot Mirror dinghies up on rocks and camped on shore. Sue and Steph took their 16 foot Wayfarer sailboat and anchored off and tented or slept aboard in their boom tent with stern line tied to shore to pull us close in to wading depth.
