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

Got as far as Holyhead and then got sea water in the fuel after the bilge pump failed.

Massive thank you to those that helped particularly the lads on "warrior" I think it was that towed us in. (Please pm me you bust a nav light towing me the least I can do is buy you a new one)

And to Hadd and Kerny who got me away from the rocks and then came to Holyhead to sought retrieval of nemanda out with me.

Thanks to mick for letting us hop on with him and finish the cruise.

You all helped to make sure what could have been a disaster and a crap weekend into a top one .

Nemanda is now tucked up in Andys boatshed waiting for a new bilge pump and carb clean etc

Cheers all

Neil and Amanda
