Congratulations!

Apparently according to the BBC standing on the console can be hazardous at speed... Who was balancing on it then?

Cheeky git! At least I'm not on a zimmer frame yet.

Thanks for all the messages of support

The trip went well. 68.0nm in 1 hour 35min 10secs. We had flat water til we got to the north of the island where the South stack and Skerries overfalls were a bit lumpy. It was a bit foggy round the top with vis at about 1/2 mile.

We set a national water speed record for under 30', a national record for a commercially coded boat and the first will possibly be ratified as a World record.

The route entailed 41 significant course changes and five unplanned ones to go round other traffic.

There's a nice trophy sitting in the Royal Anglesey Yacht club for the first to break the record under RYA regs. Any attempt will have to encompass the three outer marks of the course we ran which are the outermost nav buoy at the Caernarvon bar, a point north of the Skerries and a Starboard mark on Dinmor bank at the north entrance to the Straits.

Any attempt will probably have to run in the winter months as it's unlikely the speed restrictions on the straits will be lifted during the summer months due to traffic.

The only downside to the day was when we moored up at Beaumaris after completing the run, my trusty Standard Horizon handheld, which must have vibrated loose from its clip, decided to go for a dip. When I looked over the side my sunglasses fell off and followed it to the bottom.

Nice one Dave & Ian.

"my trusty Standard Horizon handheld, which must have vibrated loose from its clip, decided to go for a dip. When I looked over the side my sunglasses fell off and followed it to the bottom." .......... still a bumbling old fool though

Seriously, well done.
