Hi from Orkney

Hello from north isles of orkney.
Forum looks great... Loads of useful info. Thanks.
'Circumnavigated' Eday yesterday and Westray on Tuesday. Great fun! Been out this morn, but .25 miles vis...
Love being out on the water. Try to get out as much as poss this time of year as the season is quite short here as many of you will know (esp in a small rib 4.6m)
Hope to be out and about on the rib a good bit this year
Cheers
Dan

Hello and welcome (if this is your first post). You Orkney chaps have form when it comes to big things in small craft. A year or so ago three of your compatriots jet skied unaccompanied from Scarpa to Monaco via Biscay. Hard fracking core.

That jet ski feat was covered by the local paper. Sounded amazing.
I won't be trying it myself just yet!
