Yesterday we were drifting 75 miles off Angola, it is stinking hot here, and catching loads of yellowfin Tuna.

Today at anchor off congo, still nice and sunny, and warm!

Feel sorry for you guys

However should be home on 10th April, then hook up the rib for the drive to Argyll on 13th, Am sure I will feel the cold a bit then.
At least you all have had time to acclimatise!

Launched at Lymington started heading towards cows but wasn't pleasant running into wind and tide so went for plan b and nipped into Yarmouth! Coming back it was blowing quite hard! So was a slowish trek back to Lymington!

If it's slow from Yarmouth to Lymington it must be rough...easterly makes a big difference though...

Might just be me being inexperienced but we all got a good soaking coming back! Thought it was best to be cautious and take it easy coming back!

13 degrees on Arran. Felt colder on the water but well worth it for the views. Stunning day.
