You lot really should hang your head in shame! It is all too easy to knock impressive achievements such as sailing singlehanded round Britain with a couple of mates, particularly when faced with the possibility of detonating little known Liberty ships and facing 20 knot currents and the notorious Hag of Corrievreckan. Not to speak of shipping lanes.
This voyage has really captured the spirit of the ancient Britons in their relentless exploration of these islands and spectacularly coming through against almost insurmountable odds;
Britain is a nation with a great maritime tradition so it’s no surprise that our seas and tides are some of the most mapped and observed in the world. This, when faced with such a daunting natural phenomena as the Hag is, I can say without reservation, a good thing.
I feel sure that we can agree with that.
In times past we would have been taking our lives in our hands, with a real risk of death but with today’s technology it became, not a cakewalk by any means, but something that was possible. Nevertheless when we finally tiptoed past the Hag there was a palpable sense of relief on the boat.
And even the good Lord Claymore couldn't have put it better hisself.
