This is the last film of the winter season – I will be devoting myself mainly to sailing until the autumn comes sweeping across Scotland.

Excellent as always Dylan. You are an inspiration, what else can I say !
Great film again.Looking forward to the next series.Thanks.D.
A great video, as always, thanks Dylan and have a great summer.
A question for you. I am a hunter Minstrel Sailor, I love my boat and cant see me ever parting with her.My question, apart from space and head height, is there any parts of your trip you think the Minstrel would struggle with?
If you leave yourself enough time for the weather windows – it is a very capable little boat
Under engine and with the sails down she can face almost anything
Well done Sir! Have a great summer on the water.
Another late night thanks to another lovely filum! :)
Lovely shopkeeper.. Makes me want to go there just to buy a car load of his wares.
he is a lovely man and an amazing shop – and found a few of his relatives in the grave yard
Brilliant,most enjoyable and cheers,,,,I too enjoy whisky and have just downed a couple…….nice.have fun.
Thank you Dylan, another excellent production. The use of satellite imagery is a great help with pinpointing your position and courses. Sailing and filming for a few months now so forget about editing and posting and continue with your unique adventure. Safe home. P.
might take you up on a mid journey break on the way to scotland at some point P
Half way house…. No problem…. P.
What a wonderful life?Very good film yet again.I think you should get a British Council or Lottery grant for your promotion of the UK. Or at least a knighthood but given your republican views this might not be appropriate.Well done.How’s the house sale going?“Harlequin” is ready for the off now. I think I’ve cured all the leaks and she’s now at Cardiff. I’m planning on sailing to Ilfracombe, a lovely harbour, late May and then depending on the weather either turning left or right. Now that’s what I call passage planning!Keep up the good work and enjoy the summer. I hope the Scottish weather is better for you this year again.Justin
Seconding the knighthood idea! As a yank, I knew buggar all about the UK before KTL!! Now, I not only know quite a bit, I definitely want to come for a visit at least a few times & hopefully get to do a bit of sailing there! Great ambassadoring there, mate! Now, if you could see your way clear to show the DC fools how it’s done . . .Enjoy your summer! We’ll be missing all of the excellent, regular vids so maybe take a bit of pity on us poor sods & toss us a bone now & again.
Mr Rendall stocks Bacon Fries…. I like him!
Yet another great episode Dylan, and an area we have yet to investigate. I thought the village shop in Ardfern was good but this takes it to a whole new level.Fair WindsRob
By the time you get the next episodes up I’ll be back living in the UK and hopefully sailing around the west coast of Scotland. The last few years of living on the island of Borneo and sailing dinghies has been great with water temperatures in the mid 20 degrees celcius range but I have missed that stunning scenery which you quite brilliantly show off on your videos. I settle myself in my study get the air conditioning on full blast to simulate the best of Scottish summer weather and have a large glass of single malt as I sail around the UK with you. Just keep doing what you do so well!
I hope your plans are coming along nicely
– I have modified the end of the film as you suggested – seems to work(ish)
As a Youtubist, glad not to have to stand on my head to view this in its home port — fantastic and very glad I dropped by. Thanks a lot Dylan and fair winds and following seas to you this summer.
welcome to the flock of MOBs – celebrating one lost sheep etc etc
If you can download it and play it to your big telly it should look pretty good
Brilliant as usual Dylan, keep up the good work, donation on its way
Another superb episode. Thanks Dylan.
Lovely, the wife and I settled down with a mug of tea and watched from end to end. Always something to inspire in your films. I hope this summer brings you perfect wind and much family enjoyment.
so…. does it make her keener on sailing – or just make her start to wonder why the heck Jill puts up with me?
Oh yes, inspiration all round :) I think its quite comforting for her to see another wife doing the “crew thing”
the weird thing is ashore she is the boss – there is one bit of film when we are leaving fraserburgh when jill is putting the fenders away – she looks at me for the next order – that never happens in real life – the shot makes me laugh everytime I see it
I love your sailing style, minimum stress on the boat and crew super relaxed sailing.Looking forward to a great summer, we are going to head down the east coast from the humber this year if the weather gods ever get their act together.Hope you enjoy this year as much as we will watching it unfold next winter.
I do try to avoid pressuring the boat too hard – they have a bit of a tough life as it is. Blokes who tell you about dipping the lee rail on hrad beat worry me a bit. I have tried to work on the Minstrel mast from the top of a harbour wall – just deflecting the mast a couple of feet towards the harbour wall took an amazing amount of force. I assume the forces on a rig must be astonishing when the boat is hard pressed. Besides – Centaurs sail much better when they are flat
