Round Ireland Powerboat and RIB Challenge 2013 - Skerryvore

I had the opportunity to join Redbay Boats new Stormforce 950 rib Skerryvore
which was the Suzuki sponsor boat, powered by a Suzuki 300hp.
Simrad had kitted out the electronics and altogether was an awesome boat.

I, as part of the flying test monkeys, joined for a few legs
and managed to get some footage from various days.

I will cut short clips and some stills, to give you an idea of what a few of the legs were like.
Donegal Dan

As many of the entrants will have noticed, in Ireland we have big rain,
which is both "wet" and "painful" at 32 knots

Taken just after Rathlin Island on the north coast, Bangor to Killybegs Leg

Shortly after the rain, the skies cleared once more, the seas were calm and all 300 ponies were opened up...

I have another couple clips from this day, will post shortly once I get them cut

Sorry Dan not on iPhone. Pity as I was looking forward to seeing your vid of Willk bouncing up and down.

We swung by the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge
The sun came out, and the shadow of the boat on the seabed was something else.
So the GoPro got christened, took a plunge, and thankfully no bubbles

After the rope bridge, we took a run over to Inishtrahull Island, Ireland's 2nd most northerly island.
The clip has 4 short cut clips, showing the entrance to the pier.
Great spot to drop off, just let the Wildlife warden know your landing !

After Inishtrahull, the camera got put away till the entrance for a while…
There was some serious boating to be done! but I cracked it open for Killybegs.
Absolutely cracking run around Sleibh League sea cliffs, and then into the bay.
