Hi Folks

The people organising a round rockall race in 2012 are encouraging Scottish entries - interesting web site set up.

Rockall looks nice - does it have free WiFi?

Silkie,

Yeah,

There is a video on the above website which shows two guys landing on Rockall using an inflatable dinghy in quite a swell - they were lucky to still have a dinghy to get back to mother ship.

For some unaccountable reason, the pic posted by Silkie has put me off a bit.
