Here are a few more pics from around the Calf of Man and up the East Coast to Douglas...

Southerly tip of Calf of Man with Chicken Rock Lighthouse in the background. This spot is very popular with divers as the water is clear:

Southerly tip of Isle of Man with new restaurant overlooking The Sound:

We are joined by Nautical in his Absolute 39:

Absolute 39 and Gobbi 345 push the tide which I measured at 2.6 knots:

Confused water, can't imagine what it's like in winter:

Back around the other side:

I was doing 32 knots and falling behind:

Wave to Jeremy Clarkson as you pass his lighthouse, he might be hanging out his smalls although It's not a nice thing to do to Hamster:

Super Sea Cat leaves Douglas, we will soon have to deal with it's not insignificant wash:

Great pics as usual Mick.

That restaurant looks busy, see all the cars queued up the hill!!
All the pics with the boats in them are great, wether its of the Gobbi, Absolute or your Phanton, they all look fantastic, but doesn't the Absolute look small beside that navy ship!!

Thanks again, and lookingforward to part 3 /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Cheers

Al.

Flamin' 'eck!

I took tea at that restaurant, actually it was a superb home made mutton soup, with Drewstwos, last month.

Only it was blowing a hooly then. Mind you, even on a foul day, the restaurant was pretty much full. You just didn't hang about outside admiring the view.
