It seems people still find this blog of interest even though I haven't written anything new in over a year. So for you here's a trip we did back in August (writing this in November) and thank you very much for your continued reading.
Elan and myself jumped in his car early morning to head over to St Davids, Pembrokeshire, to meet up with Jules and James for what was forecast to be a perfectly settled day. So perfect was the forecast that we intended to paddle out to the Bishops and Clerks, a committing trip to a group of offshore islands approximately 5km off St Davids Head and Ramsey Island. Eager to get underway we left the still waters of the harbour entrance into...
We could spot some white water off the tip of Ynys Bery. We decided to continue on but it looked unlikely we would be heading any further offshore to the Bishops. Alternatively Plan B was to head up the west side of Ramsey with the remaining flood tide.
Actually this is how I prefer it, small and fast.

Ah yes this is my new sail and this was it's first outing, except there wasn't anymore than a slight breeze.
