Two Nations Cruise

Whilst some BIBOA members were  heading off around Ireland, the boys on Seahound, Mystic Dragon and Bourne Runner headed South for warmth in the Isles of Scilly and La Belle France. Here they are taking a lunch stop in Mont St Michel; are those pints of Calvados !?   The (edited) highlights will be posted here when they return, they were due back in early August but apparently that's now looking a bit optimistic...
