just got back from a great day out with Ed and his crew on Kick Ass, Tony with his crew Joe and Mick (Tellcowilliam) on Domino, n little ol me by meself on That's Enuff, it was a touch lumpy thru The Straits, I had a few soakings just getting past Caernarfon and it was even more lumpy off Puffin Island, we did set off towards The Great Orme but I think the others took pity on me and we turned back just to finish the day off a great bit of helicoptering by the RAF Air Sea Rescue at Brittania Bridge

Sounds like a great day Chris and fantastic to know your strength's returning to the point you're happy to get out in such conditions.

My theory is the guys were glad you were there on the way to Orme coz it gave them a good excuse to turn back
