I reluctantly had to turn down a an invite for a trip around the Isle of Wight with Eurion and company. But with the weather looking so promising I had to make an effort to get out on the water locally. Practically no wind, minimal swell and the early morning mist forecast to clear up into a bright sunny day.Jules and Taran around four hours before low water, springs. The plan is simply to head west with the ebb. I had it in mind that I wanted to get out to some of the off shore buoys when the mist clears.
We follow the route taken on the way out via our GPS track. Large waves come into view signaling Llantwit reef. We land on the sands not entirely sure how far up the beach we are. We ask a couple of fishers just to make sure before hauling the boats up the beach.
