My 7 year old wants to come around the Island but instead I have arranged a day out for them and we'll get out in the boat later in the week instead.

Going ribbing with my kids is great but only in the right conditions, so to be honest if it were me I would be looking for a baby sitter for the day just incase the weather kicks up a bit and use the day as a 'date' with your other half

The toughest part of this trip will be around the back of the island with nowhere to stop.

One parent to another, I hope this helps

Low tide looks more like this

I am gutted, but it looks like I am not going to be able to make it. I spent some time abroad recently, and I have come back with some sort of infection, which has been a bit nasty. I was hoping that I would be recovered by now, but now I cannot see me being sufficiently fit for the day. Apologies to all, I really wish I could be out there with you. I hope that all goes well on the day.
