I wise man once told me that the pipes always sound much better accompanied by the right malt. He wouldn't tell me which malt, just said that the searching and sampling are the bits that make the skirling so much more bearable.

Yip...I tried to get the three of them to wear life jackets, the camera was being moved up and down as I towed the boat past, with another bloke trying to throw water at them.

Dara's the one to go for a beer with.

Hi Billy,

Happy new year to you too

Yes it was a good laugh..although GRJ supposedly is a boaty bloke...knows nothing about ribs.

The 'Fyfe' they were on in the race was a beautiful boat.
