The 13-metre sailing boat had five on board hoping to get to Port Clinton, 41 nautical miles away, without too many problems other than taking a little longer than usual to sail into the port due to the rough conditions at Rosslyn Bay (pictured).

Loonacy takes it sweet time at sea to get to destination

A BOAT some old salties might think is aptly named - Loonacy - hit the rough water yesterday at 6.04am and headed for Port Clinton.

When leaving Rosslyn Bay the crew sailed into rough water, according to the Keppel Sands Volunteer Coast Guard.

The 13-metre sailing boat had five on board hoping to get to Port Clinton, 41 nautical miles away, without too many problems other than taking a little longer than usual to sail into the port due to the rough conditions.

A Coast Guard spokesman said the crew had registered their trip with them, which was pleasing.
