Hi all, it's been a while since I have been here.

This year I decided to take Dionysus and compete in the Scottish Islands Peaks Race - an endurance race involving mountain running and sailing over 3/4 days around Argyll in the West of Scotland.

A crew of 5 - 2 runners and three sailors travel almost 100km and climb a total of 10000m, and sail 195km. We had glorious sunshine, we had no wind, we had too much wind. We had - not unusual for Scotland, rain. we had big waves, and no waves. We had 8knt tidal streams to work around.

Unfortunately due to sea-sickness and equipment failures - most serious of which was the heads coming off its mountings, it was decided for safety to retire, along with 28 others of the 44 race starters.

Details of the race are at www.scottishislandspeaksrace.com
