Toby is kinda busy earning a crust these days and seldom posts, so all these pics are rather out of date.
Kevin AY, the pics were shot on 7/8 June and I bust Mag A on the ill-fated trip to Spain on 24 June. The boat's fine now.
The bloke on the buoy is Toby's mate, name not known, but a nice helpful lad. When we needed to get ashore as a group but could not leave a RIB alongside, he delivered us all before motoring out to deeper water to drop an anchor. He then swam ashore in his dry suit. Good move.
The pic was taken on the cardinal, close by Bishop's Rock lighthouse. We had motored out there but it was getting too rough for the smaller RIBs so we turned back. Toby and pal went on so that they could get that snap.
Richard, it's the same fella in the water with the fins. They are a school of basking sharks that Toby encountered on the way out to the Scillies. Our intrepid swimmer couldn't resist the temptation to go and play with them....
