Looks like they made it in just before 1600. Top job! Watched them off this morning, could hardly see anything! A thick bank of fog was surrounding St Mary's, but behind the protection of the two Targas' radar they headed off and I believe it cleared only a couple of miles offshore.
I just wanted to say that this really is a fantastic was to do this cruise, by all accounts for various reasons the Round Ireland wasn't the ideal cruise and learning from those mistakes, from our point of view there would be no better way to do this cruise. Doing it more informally is great, but all kudos to Trevor F who really takes these things in his stride and organises so much, we certainly would have no qualms following him around! We're just glad we could join for thaw first 250 miles, now just to work out how to get home!
Lovely day in St Mary's once the fog had cleared:
