Just after doing an unplanned Round Ireland myself! (Albeit in a Sunseeker and not a RIB) - Will do a write up next week, just packing now for a weekend of Thundercat racing in Wales

Strewth, two stroke mick. It varied sooo much.
I am guessing but I would have thought 25-30 knots?????????
Sometimes we were down to a crawl, 10-15 knots going into a head wind with heavy seas. Towards the end we speeded up because the weather improved remarkably. The last two days we were able to achieve high 30s and low 40s but the fuel was being gobbled at this rate so we slowed back down to 35. Fuel is amazingly cheap in Ireland, we were able to manage 1 liter per mile overall.

Now where next..............
