well it's better to be cold and windy this time of year when it's short days, hopefully when the clocks go forward we can look forward to a long season of warm dry weather with seas calm enough for us to get out n enjoy it all, I'm looking forward to sitting in the warm sand at Pilot's Cove and a good blast through The Straits to Puffin Island

That makes me laugh ..I've never met such a nice guy 'telling us off' for doing a little more than 5 - about 30 more

I think he was starting to wonder if he'd catch us in 2013...

it's ok for you, but he knows where we launch from so no need to chase us, just waits till we get back

5 Knot Limit

We had to smile last time we went through the 5 knot limit. It was a lovely flat calm day and quite busy. We saw a 14ft speedboat tanking up from Caernarfon and out came the man with his blue lights flashing - it was better than a speed trap on the A55! He even handed him out a note - would it be a fine?
