Re: Piel Island

Talking to a chap from Barrow last week-end, in Lanzarote, 20C I wish I was still there. Anyway he informed me that the pub was re-opened and the new King had been installed. So hey ho looks like pi@@ed trips in the dingy back to the boat will be on the agenda again this summer.

Tall ships race

Any formites visiting Liverpool for the tall ships 18-21 July are invited for a tipple aboard BigWow, unfortunately in the marina as we are not welcome in the river during the event itself.
