It can be confidence, lack of navigational skills, worries of boat size/sea and passengers if it blew up or niggling doubt about boat reliability. All the aforementioned used to apply to me and I wish I'd been on the forum then.

If going together combined with few caring sorts willing to sweep along with smaller boats removes any of the above, I'll be a happy bunny.

Last year we enabled all boats to reach morfa nefyn by going as a group. Had two certain boats been alone, they would have had an unpleasant journey back. their crew/passengers were tired and uncomfortable as it got rougher. However they were reallocated to bigger boats and the skippers had a ball flying off the waves. Safety, fun and pleasure. Result.

I had two boats email me thanking us for doing what we did, they didn't need help but were glad there were boats following behind who could help if fuel filters blocked, engines stalled etc. They enjoyed the day as they felt safer.
Very well said. Anybody no matter what boat, or experience can get into difficulties - safety in numbers.
