Looking forward to trip. Good opportunity to recce for Ravenglass Seaquest on 12th July. I'll get there early and treat myself to coffee and cake at La'al Ratty cafe. I'm looking for an old Seaquest map in case anyone wants the Seaquest rules explaining.

For information - an old Seaquest map. We set kayakers and canoeists off about 1.5 hours before high tide. They had 3 hours to visit as many check points as possible. Winning man usually got them all. Tomorrow we're going up The Esk (far right estuary). It's very beautiful!
