You can passage in a force 6-7 but you know at the end of the day you've done it !! especially when you get up to the nearest pub and your standing there still swaying (not due to the alcohol). I had a look just outside St.Anns head this week with a 13-16 ft swell...didn't stay long !! straight back into the shelter of Milford Haven. This week doesnt look good either, getting bored need to go to sea.
No thats a big Picton waterjet - mine is about the same size but a very bright blue - over in Burryport at the moment - not a good idea even with only 1.6m!!!

I'm holidaying with the family in your area later in the year..may need to interrogate you to find out the best places to visit.
Yep thats no problem, lots of good places to visit, are you coming up with a boat,?
