(visited by Richard Naisby)

23-Sep-2003 -- The yacht "Lady Ruth" and crew visited 43N 16E in the late afternoon of the 23rd September 2003. The confluence lies just to the north of the island of Biševo where we'd spent a few hours swimming and exploring the beautiful "Blue Grotto". The crew was part of an English pub cricket side visiting the island of Vis (seen in the east facing view) to play the first fixture between an English cricket side and the Sir William Hoste Cricket Club. Our side (the St Radegund XI) won by 8 wickets!

The confluence was easy to get close to but gaining the last digits on the GPS in a large yacht proved a mite tricky! Still we got there in the end!

The intrepid crew were : Jon Dawson, Frances Dawson, Nick King, Chris Metcalfe, Richard Naisby, Caroline Saywell, Ron Taylor, John Whitney
