Good company, good craioc, and good fun - another Giovannoli production led (I hesitate to use the word 'organised') in his inimitable style.
I have attended all three events, and it was good to see more boats taking part this year. We had five boats from the Isle of Man making a weekend of it, and as far as I know all had a great time although the state of the Copelands Hotel did attract some comment!
I remember seeing your boat in both Donaghadee and Portpatrick, but not on the crossing. Is there any truth in the rumour that you put it on a trailer and caught the Stranraer ferry ?..........
We left Portpatrick just before 4pm and were back in Peel at 5.30, the trip being a little uncomfortable all the way with a strengthening wind from the south west trying to push the tide back.
All in all, a great day out and I look forward to next year. Who knows, we may even get T shirts !!
Are you involved in the Irish Sea Challenge later this week ?
