Well done chaps. Looking forward to seeing some video, but I guess a glass or three of something strong and a decent night's sleep are your first priorities.

Well done everyone. Haven't had a chance to follow closely as been away and mobile Internet's been rubbish but look forward to reading the thread when I get home.

He blames the tin ternet in Ireland being slower, but I think he's been drinking to much apple cider

Dude, it really was fantastic, very tough but a great experience that I will never forget. Really great people too.

It was great listening to the VHF radio as you can hear the accents change as you go round

I've just added up my Mileage and Fuel stats
Blue Ray - 8.6m Shearwater Cabin Rib with Verado 275
Total mileage covered in 13 Days = 1600 miles exactly
Total Fuel used (as per the engine data) 2470 Litres
=> Average Fuel usage 1.54 Litres per mile.
This was with 2 people usually on-board.
