The expected wind arrived overnight: a southerly that was forecast to reach up to F8, but in reality probably never exceeded F6. It didn't seem to have affected the radio amateurs, but nevertheless it was too windy for paddling, so I spent the day ashore.

Later on the sun came out, but the forecast still looks too windy for the Mull.
