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..........
we know what we are missing bruce... lots little midges..!!! but i have been told its a great place to cruise.. so next year might take you up and do a trip north (if i can hire a mosquito net) where do you recommend

This is the sort of thing I mean, this is the view from the window beside me at this very moment, I just had to open the door and take the picture.
Anybody fancy a trip to the small isles camping if the weather co-operates

Bruce I was really small when I left and cannot remember any of my school mates sorry. As my dad was the por at GC and i was later employed by Alginates I can remember such people as Alfie White and larry Forgrieve. Still come up regularly when I am in tayvallich.
Cheers
