The Anglesey trip was a walk in the park Jeff compared to the crossing yesterday it was a great experience both boats handled great I would put yesterday crossing down as a bit of extreme ribbing

I did say they'd break before the boats..... I was hoping they wouldn't get to that though. Three being sick is not pleasant. Glad you're all safe.

How many boats went?
