We've done IoM there and back in a day from Fleetwood-around 60 miles each way to Douglas. ***** "Mannin's cloak" was down when we arrived. Fog so thick m'specs were running with water from it. So they postponed the TT - til just as we set off back
Big summer high pressure fx for a few days is what you need (and plenty of warm clothes in case that ****** fog comes down-it was SO cold in that despite being 20degrees on shore)...and advice from Brian-he's the man for the IoM. Peel is very pleasant. Friend lives around there and has his boat in the marina.
Long time since I was at Port Logan, spent so much time fishing/diving round there over the years. Must go back again!
