Good work.

Is it always like that on a falling tide at the top?

and everyone who turned up on what must have been a "challenging" days ribbing for us all, I had a great day out, I think my crew Andrew and Jeff did well putting up with my driving skills, or lack of them
hopefully I'll sort some good video clips from the gopro when I get home, first time we've used it so maybe not upto TonyT's efforts yet
it was great to have a chat with everyone at Fu's, you've all kept me going the last twelve months, can't wait for next years cruise, I'm sure HP will be sorting a date soon
Agreed. Great day. Thanks to HP and sorry we had to dash. Nick who was with me had to get back to London so we were straight off .

Leg wouldn't lift as I was fastened to the botom and I didn't want to break anyhthing by trying again. Figured it was calm in the marina an plenty of people around. So I stood on the cavity plate , reached and cut... Good job it worked, otherwise I'd have looked a right prat!!

Great weekend chaps thanks to Chris and the boys for launching etc and HP for starting it off glad I got round although my steering was playing up leaking and at one point I could only turn left and seem as we were going clockwise wasn't much good
Stripped it down this aft and it looks ok so it's a mystery
Jonny should have some gopro footage when he gets it sorted got a good one off us stuffing the nose in
Awesome trip anyway.

Wow what an experience! I had to keep asking Mat H to check if the engine was still on the back of the transom

Well IMOGEN did me proud and she came back all in one piece so GED if your reading this... what you told me was correct!! the "Air-Craft rib" will handle anything what is thrown at it

Great to meet the Southern boyz, AJ, whisper, and Peter M you're a great set of lads next time come up for a bit longer

Mat H, great to have you aboard Imogen, I really enjoyed your company but, I must say.. your madddd... you just wanted more rough stuff but you are a good helmsman your welcome to helm Imogen anytime mate

Also it was nice to be with our friends to see the April regulars and new faces, this now looks to be a well established annual cruise

Thanks H.P. for organising the rally
A big thankyou to Chris at Ty Calch and his staff for his smooth operations as always

And I will end with this... Simsy Well done for getting round , that took some bottle.

not always, mainly spring tides at full flow. these of course are then made worse by the wind. the saying locally is 'fangs (near trearddur)on the flood, (north)stack on the ebb, in relation to tidal overfalls. carmel head to cemaes bay is also interesting at times.

Matt H would like his neck back if he left it on your boat.? and I think he went all the way round with eyes closed ?

Is AJs radar reflector about to hit the bridge ? (PM me your email and I'll send them all over)

I'm finally getting round to footage and pics....watch this space...

1st post! Welcome. You've certainly passed any kind of "initiation" test! Glad you made it along.

AJ, cheers for towing so far, sterling effort!
