"Thanks for the pictures David Mike I am sure I will have 1 million and 1 questions at some point! I will be sure to float them across. I will try and get to you Stephen and George so I can get a view of a slightly different configured Titania."

Please tell us about your interest in the Atalanta
I have seen one for sail and I like the fact they are not a usual looking boat. I am planning it will be a project boat for me and my wife to work on.

So during our trip around Anglesey was quite uneventful although we did witness an amazing sunset in the Irish Sea.

The progress was slow going around Bardsey as we hit the tides wrong and the winds come onto our nose. Anyway we eventually turned Bardsey Island and entered into Aberporth Gunnery Range…
