Lower Away the Jib-Topsail

Line drawing of a yacht with the Paps of Jura in the background. The illustration is taken from 'A yachtsman's holidays' by 'The Governor' (i.e. John Inglis). The title of the illustration refers to an incident during a cruise on a yacht called the 'Mermaid'. The crew (including the author of the book from which the illustration is taken), were caught in a sudden storm.

The Paps of Jura are a small mountain range of three hills on the west of the island. Beinn a' Chaolais, Beinn Shiantaidh and Beinn an Oir, the highest at 785m (2575ft). Jura is separated from the Scottish Mainland by the Sound of Jura
