    Default Whereisit?

    Well, since people are moaning about what a terrible year it's been, I thought I'd post a picture from this year somewhere in these isles of ours. It's a toughie I'll give you that, but at least it shows that we did have some lovelly days this year.



    ETA: we had full sail up at this point and were making way at about 5-6kt so a most pleasant afternoon

    Middle of the Irish Sea Well, probably closer to Ireland than Great Britain in the pic. The boat is a carbon fibre race boat called Juno III so 5-6kt was rather slow for her!
