Sounds like you finally have it well under control Gilles.

Just out of curiosity, what happened to make you drop out of the Round Ireland Westport to Fenit leg and take a massive pointless detour into Galway Docks with HMS and his cygnet for an unscheduled stop? It put you a day behind the rest of the field and saw you embrangled in, what was it, thunderspouts and maelstroms..., no, was it tornados the next day before getting led home by the RNLI? Did you continue by sea to Dingle in Kalish or did you trailer overland along with the rest of the flockin' swans?

Freston Junior, desist from notions of doing Round Anywhere stuff in that SR4. Good kit, wrong "race"

You should watch the RB4 video (small boats big seas) the porno SR4 was out on the first leg if I remember correctly.

Still an awesome rib but the SR4 will make it but you'll be shot.

However SR4's did make it round Scotland

This is the trailer for it, you need to try and get hold of the original film, I borrowed a VHS version from Nathan K on here who was also planning on taking his SR4 round Britain when he was 15

Think I'd rather schedule in my rest days. Fair enough I might need to move them but if you have a 12 day event and said +2 rest days then you can put one at d5 and one at d10. If it turns out you can't get out on d4, you move the rest day.

But it means your accomodation isn't messed up for the remaining 7 days just 1.
