He would of course provide you with a lee, but even this can be challenging with small lightweight craft.
I'm not saying it can't be done, and really not looking to throw spanners, I hope it will be a fantastic experience for you all, and wish you the very best for your voyage.
PS, If anyone would like some high res pics or vids whilst departing or returning to the Port of Milford Haven, then please contact and we can arrange a meeting place.
