the gap is closing. astonishing to see the number of wrecks marked on the large scale digital chart between here and fmth – so many tragedies, so many  people waiting and watching – we grew up with kathleen ferrier singing ‘blow the wind southerly’ –  have the same record with me in the boat – hauntingly beautiful and the chart gives it a poignancy that i had never felt so strongly. so many ghosts.

david mck – you can’t be serious?

carol, thanks – we’ll wait to hear

jeremy, thanks and thst’s basically what we intended to do – any beartraps with tide as we are coming in? we may be doing it at night. not fussed, but useful to know.

fiona – no way kiddo – we’re almost out of guinness.

gordo – woohoo and no, we don’t think so..


nailbiting….and the visibility is shortish in drizzle – bloody typical – so i’ve got to go and look.
