Sure is Dave especially with the bits of water to navigate it can be onerous in good conditions. Keep safe

Despite being a mere sibber I've spent time on larger craft (mostly slow ones though) on longer passages. So... much respect for achieving that first day. In the spirit that it all helps I'll drop a modest donation on the justgiving page.
