Me and Jurgen meet up with the dudes from Fast Forward and we head off to the pub for my first ever pint of Irish Guinness and it's the best I have ever tasted, just like cream, its awesome

The Thornton dudes are really interesting guys

Been a great read whilst looking after the rugrats! Cheers. Inspires me to do more, I think a Guinness run is on the cards. ;-)

Day 5

Ok, so we are 3 boats down now.

Today we are off to Bangor, Northern Island...

I slept in Blue Ray as Trev and Rick had Mikes B&B and Jurgen slept on the deck of Black Hawk in the rain. But the good news is it's brightening up...

Facebook post by Ray (Finn)

We had a few problems yesterday but hope to sort them out today, our new team member got to see the Irish channel in a strong wind but she held on bravely to reach Dun Laoghaire and recover enough to take Will out for dinner on his birthday. I think she was very brave.
We are setting off this morning to Bangor will post some pictures today.

Meanwhile, the main group have had a leisurely lunch at Portaferry, leaving there at 1530. Eta Bangor 1645. Hopefully the Targas will catch up tomorrow night at Oban.

After lunch we head back out and round to Bangor, we pass a huge tide powered turbine and the workmen strike a pose as I take a pic

The funniest thing about the trip is listening to all the accents change over the VHF as you work you way around Britain
