Fantastic scenery/bloody awful people.

That’s not exactly true.  We met some great folks who helped on our passage mainly in the rural areas but the towns were not so nice which were mainly full of drunks.  South Queens Ferry near Edinburgh was an exception – very nice with good food and only one larger drinking haunt which we had one pint in and left.

Due to the delays in Newlyn we had used up our contingency time and therefore rather than go around the top, we opted for the short cut through the canal.  If anybody who has donated has a problem with this the I will personally refund your money.
