"I reckon that the smaller boats will be doing well to average much more than 15kt given a bit of mixed weather"
Way i see it too.... Also,as TSM says,overall fitness will play its part.

You're absolutely right Boss, I've just read the blurb

It was the "challenge" bit that had me confustered - you know - "I challenge you to a leisurely cruise" wasn't a phrase I'd heard before...

That jaunt you had to scotland a few weeks ago in the beast has made you soft. You now think that all ribbing is like that.

lol - patently you have failed to keep track of me. Lot of miles* in a SIB and a 6.1m since then. Any more water and I'm gonna turn into a duck for real...

Ardbeg from Cushendall return in appalling weather - 6.1m
Rathlin from Donegal return after dark - 6.1m
14Nm tour of Inver Bay, St John's Point - 2.7m SIB

I rest my case, on my Laurels

I took the "Challenge" to mean the challenge to complete it. However - I was considering doing it (to enjoy - not endure...) - but I reconsidered when I saw the length of some of the legs...

Maybe I'll just do clew bay out to Inishbofin with 2TMick instead...

If you have never been then put Clew Bay at the top of your "to do" list

I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time over the years boating in Clew Bay in both a 6.5m RIB and a 3.8m SIB and I would describe it as breath takingly beautiful, unspoilt, challenging and often very "sporty" to say the least
