As ever this brought on the thoughts for the night ahead. The dusk was long, and we were running short on fuel so the debate turned to whether we would stop at Troon, Ardrossan, or continue to Largs. Fortunately the forecast breeze answered that question.

At last the familiar lights of Hunterston and Largs came into view, and at 3am we motored into Largs Marina.
