We seriously considered turning round at Holyhead & coming back down the west side, knowing what lay ahead....Am I glad we didn't, I'd never have lived it down
You've certainly got some cojones Simsy
We had a fantastic time, got to meet new friends & put faces to names. It was nice to see plenty of WAGS turning up, it gave the weekend a more social feel, rather than just a bunch of hairy arsed overgrown kids playing with their toys
We had a couple of friends on the boat & it was their first time out in a RIB, talk about baptism of fire, (or water) We had a few lairy moments in the various overfalls, it never ceases to amaze me, the power of the sea. Several times we were perched on top of a cliff of water, 230hp shoving 2x4 blade props & going nowhere, even backwards at one point
Thanks to HP for organising it & big thanks to Chris & his team for doing a fantastic job of getting us in & out, top man
Here's to Oban
