Bruce great video looked interesting in places!! Did you take video on your Flip if so the results are great . The caves looked interesting, all in all considering everything it seemed a great w/end.

Yep, the little flip took these videos and even the wife can work it as it only has one big button!
The really "interesting" part of the run was not filmed as we were both trying to stay in the boat at the time, not an experience I want to repeat again if possible.
Overall it was worth doing for the experience but I reckon the RIB will never go south of the border again as it just isn't worth it compared to what we have on our doorstep, its really no contest although it was nice to meet some folk. Hopefully they will come up here and see what what they are missing.........

Next year we go from Whithorn and go across to IOM from there..........

As marked on the map, the coastline from here south towards Holyhead seems to be very similiar rock most of the way along and quite rugged.
