Well done Deano - a long day! Some photos of the rig and a quick summary would be great to have?

We spotted you passing north of Inishtrahull - I think you saw donegaldan in his dark Redbay - we were stationary in a grey/white hull and harder to spot. You were making great time - your massive wake/plume gave you away!
