    This was not so.
    Our itinerary was Dublin-Scilly Islands-Isle of White-Helgoland.
    So the course was first S
    Then E, and
    then mostly NE. (So the "general course" was E; except the
    first 2 days. Kiel is in the East
    of Dublin).
    
    The wind blew more or less from N most of the time.
    
    
    Alex.
