Great report as usual Willk. Again I'm green at missing another Test Monkey outing.

A hell Tony, at this stage you must be green throughout with all the adventures you miss

Could I try and convince you that we maybe didn't have an absolute ball ?

I was delighted to see the Team and vessel safe in Kilmore Quay, having completed the course in the original timeframe of the Round Ireland Challenge. The only reported failure on the entire voyage was one windscreen bolt and I can now confess from the safety of my mountain lair, that I stole that bolt.....

You forgot to thank your agent

Yes, nice, but nothing to do with me (although I'm in it). It is the work of Rob Cooper from Suzuki.

I should mention that the RIB Skerryvore was named after the band Skerryvore, themselves presumably named after the eponymous reef and lighthouse off the west coast of Scotland. They gave permission for their music to be used in the video, which is a refreshing change from the usual Youtube stuff.
