Belated apologies, I was fortunate enough to have been a passenger on Corryvreckan for the duration and I was happily adding photos live until my phone signal was lost. I see I launched a couple of those RIBs twice...

Anyway, the craic was mighty - almost 30 boats left for Islay and a great reception at Ardbeg Distillery where we were greeted like old friends. Probably because a substantial number of us were longstanding visitors and imbibers

A late afternoon depart saw us headed for Rathlin Island and a few scoops in the pub. I got my phone signal back and was updating poor donegaldan about the hardships of the crossing. He replied "Funny it wasn't rough enough to tumble the Cheeseboard & Prosecco!" Damn social media

Anyways, a few more photos below of the massed Redbays taken by a more accomplished photographer - thanks Paddy.

I'll return to the subject of Corryvreckan at a later date - I took a load of photos during her fitout that I never did get around to posting...
