I do miss it, but I have a yard full of other boats to use!

Quick delivery of a brand new Merry Fisher 855, so thought I'd take the GoPro and get some footage. Onboard action is after the stills slideshow.

Sadly no

Holyhead to Peel, on to Isle of Whithorn and on to Whitehaven for the maritime festival.

Don't think we crossed the Equator.....

Think I missed the Whoose Parrot - sorry...

yikes WTF? Makes you wonder just how badly the manouvre would have to go before the captain decides to put it in neutral and assess the situation!

I would suggest there was a mechanical issue there, rather than just carelessness, whether that be on the Cyprus Cement, or on the tug that was alongside her.

Thoroughly enjoying the LV Cup to cheer on Team NZ but check this out from Race 1 yesterday! And they went on to win it!

Emirates Team NZ AC72 bow down from 36 knots to 6


Emirates Team New Zealand rounded the windward mark to starboard and dug the bows in!
