Cheers Mugshot, Dave took it at around 08:30. You're right, it is stunning.
The reflection is split from the bridge by the mist, the water through the Straits was like this all the way on the record run itself.

I posted some about a week or so ago from a trip up the Cleddau where the water is that still, the reflection is so perfect it can feel like you're flying. Beautiful.
Congrats on the record by the way

Just found this on the RYA Records page. Slower average than we calculated but they are the boss!

I am led to believe it is the first Welsh Powerboat Record set as well!!! The flag was a must.
