Oh ... did I not mention that after our attempts in 2007 and 2008, we can now finally say that we've completed the Scottish Islands Peak Race! Get in!  Ultimate respect to our runners Ben and Bruce who pushed themselves through this grueling event!  As usual, the weather proved interesting with wind over tide around the mull.  There's various stories online of boats that struggled to get round.  Being in a bigger boat, we weren't too bad, but our trip from Jura to Arran took us something stupid like 36 hours!?!  Anyway, of the 40 odd boats that started, less than 20 finished it.  I think we came 10th overall, but to be honest, we weren't really in it to win it!
