PBR article on a winter raid on the Bristol Channel

I have just read in deatil PBR article on the winter raid on the Bristol Channel. I do not know the UK ao have to use google maps to help when reading this article (I find this a lot with PBR. Note to HMS a small map would help a lot with these articles). I thought it a good and interesting article which give me an appitite for winter crusing. For the last three years I have pulled my rib assunder to carry out serious upgrades. This should be the last winter wheree my boat is not available for use.

Article well written and enjoyed by me. I have in the past been a critic of some of the articles in PBR and RI

Just finished it myself, really cannot make up my mind about this mag.
Nearly always 1 or 2 good story's but...?

Stand out line in that Bristol story i thought was
"The scene was grey and uninviting at first glance, but nonetheless it was full of character"
Know that one,been their lots of times.

Maps would be nice,but then the Norway map had 4 Capsizes instead of Campsites
