Been there, seen it, done it!
In 2006 clockwise, daylight, to win RWYC Shetlands RBI in class en 2nd overall behind Michel Kleinjans.
And now anti clockwise, pitch dark (that rock must be somewhere there).
Exciting! An island in darkness is scary. It feels so close you can touch it. Although the chart says you're 8 miles offshore.
Big holes and high mountains sea.
Chicken curry and 'borrelnootjes' for dinner.
Socks do smell.
