So you reckon your trip is "low-key and somewhat modest"? Don't think so - speaking as someone who has yet to get farther than Phuilladobhrain (and I bet that's a misspelling) I reckon you're both bloody heroes. Looking forward to seeing you in the T & T and hearing all the gory detail...

Hiya Nick & Kathy Congrats on your ship-dodging traverse of Biscay and landfall in Ireland. Now you mention it, it does seem to be true - whatever port you put in to, there is a festival or summink going on. I reckon there'll be a few pints sunk in the T&T too when you get back to Balvicar. ...

Nick, to make your decision you have to get your priorities right:

which has the better beer - Madeira or the Azores?

Still, at least your return trip is well and truly underway now (and it must have been good t...
