That's not particularly unusual out there - it won't be as bad in summer. However, the prevailing winds blow onto our unprotected western shore and the tides are strong. 3 meter swells are the norm.

Expect rough seas for large parts of the trip

Useful link posted by T 15 yesterday. Thanks for that.

Useful information for all RIPRC 2013 participants from the Continent:

P&O offers a 20 % early booking price reduction only until 31.01.13 for all online bookings on their Calais-Dover sailings. I booked my ferry tickets yesterday using that offer. This way their flexi-fare was even a little cheaper than the standard non-refundable fare will be as of 01.02.13.

Hoping to see quite a few participants from Europe when we start our trip in Milford Haven on July 26th!

All the Best from Germany
Joachim, Team Cetus

Irish Monster Waves

I am at least as scared as Bushmaster. Just cancelled my ferry bookings for the trip from Germany to Milford Haven on the 25th of July

Sorry Jürgen, you are a Bushrider (and not Bushmaster yet).
