Every time I look at the weather it changes! So just going to plan on the morning. Got a boat full as well so won't be anything major. Just a run in the straights and maybe down to the gazelle.

Had a top weekend out on Saturday, didn't go far as was 10 up, just out to puffin watching the seals and then down to the gazelle for a pint.

Anyone know anything about the cave just down by the gazelle?

What time? It was about 14:30 I think when we stopped off.

Just as we left a few hard boats pulled in - but other than that didn't see any others

around 1'ish I guess, we didn't stop for a pint, but there wern't many boats about, other than the Cardinal Buoy in its usual speck, no wonder HP can only get it upto 30 all that green crap hanging off it

Cave only goes in about 15m, then it shallows to nothing. Thinks its just a drain run off from up the hill.

Scary when I was 7yr old though!!

Yeah went into it for an explore, and it was impressive - a few different routes but all to a dead end - wanted to know more about the history of it if anyone knew, drain run off is a little boring....

Apparently its still scary now, especially when your right at the end and you turn the torch off then make scary noises...

We didn't make it out, watched the rugby! And as my wife is an Aussie I felt like not doing much after that!
