Yes they made it all the way round in a 4.2m quicksilver, the crewman had to sit in the bow in the rough stuff to keep the boat level, hats off to them they are tough cookies

Has to be them. They got back and came to Fu's. how they got through without being swamped I will never know. Perhaps a little foolhardy to carry on from Holyhead, but heh, they made it in one piece!! Well done Simsy. Testament to what a little, shallow v hull can achieve with what must be excellent skippering and balls of steel.

That's amazing!...and it must have been quality boat handling to get round. Hats off to them.
