Is this a practical journey?
Keith (do we have a convoy) Hart
Keith - No, not in a SIB, and most definately not a convoy! Well not with me anyway
If you're going to the Faroes you don't want to go there from Fair Isle and unless you want to go to the Shetlands or the Orkneys for some other reason, there's no point in going there either. Kinlochbervie is a convenient place to set off from.
Gary - yes plans are quite well advanced. We had planned to reach the Faroes this summer but due to family committments etc this didn't actually happen, but should next year.
We have two boats making the trip - my own and an 8.5m Delta. Further company would not be a problem but we have to carefully consider this. We have a seriously long open water leg to reach the Faroes so we have to be certain of eachothers capabilities etc. I wouldn't like to meet you for the first time as we set off!
Send me a PM if you'd like to take this further.
