I can feel a round the Island thread coming on pretty soon.

I would be interested in joining you too

I've been round the island once - but in a friend's 6.5 m rib:

I'd be up for another go in my own rib providing it wasn't quite as choppy as the last time!

Sounds like we might have a convoy

Thos pics look pretty tame from your last trip round. It's always a bit choppy off St Catherines, and it always seems a real trek from St. Cath to the Needles (or vice versa).

My wife and I did it about a month ago on the Jetski.. That was a good little trip out. Did it in about 2H 20mins, with abot a 20 min break for lunch on the beach at Alum Bay.

Should be a bit more comfortable in the rib..
