Those of you in Northern Ireland now, Scotland over the next couple of weeks, and down the East coast after that, please keep an eye out for these guys - one of whom is someone I've known for years and used to sail with - who are going round Britain in a Wayfarer (a 16 foot or so long sailing dinghy for those not into that sort of thing). They set off from Weymouth 10 days ago, starting with 3 days and nights continuously at sea which got them to S Wales. Currently edging up the N Irish coast against the tide, unclear whether they will stop there for a kip or keep going North. There's a yellow brick tracker page on the website if you want to check where they are... but if you see them, say hello!
They are clearly quite nuts, but you've got to admire their commitment! And if any ribnetter is able to help them on their way at any point, it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!
