A dream come true

Last Thursday the winds and weather looked good to make this long-held dream become reality.

Here are some of the pics I took, will add commentary in due course and hopefully a fuller write-up for the magazine.

Many thanks for all your encouragement.

It's is what Macs were built

It's is what Macs were built for. Absolutely brilliant made even better by the weather.

Magazine article

Thanks Stu, the article is currently just under 2800 words, is this about right or would more or less be better?

The pics were all uploaded to the gallery at full resolution so you should hopefully be able to swipe them from here. Only iPhone 5c so not first class.


Hi Mike.

I’ll leave the word count to you. I’d be loathe to have a single article much more than 3,500 words, but there’s no reason why we can’t spread the write up of your significant achievement over two issues.

Drop me a line if you want to discuss.

Thanks so much.

Thanks Mike for doing a write

Thanks Mike for doing a write-up, and a belated congratulations from me on your successful trip.

A word about photos - the website downsizes photos when they're uploaded (to save on storage mainly), the resulting size is more than adequate for a screen use, but for gloss printing the original resolution is best.

It would be best if you could send Stu the originals, maybe via Dropbox or other sharing site?
