We all like to wild camp and have adventures, I am no different.  Please just be careful people while wild camping on Islands when using canoes, especially loading with gear.  Water and wind is unpredictable at times and can change rapidly.  Saturday morning when I got to the Lifeboat station I was on shore crew.  Thankfully are were rescued safely.   It was a large operation, involved were that I was aware of:
Portaferry RNLI Lifeboat (pick up 6 included 2 on an Island and retrieved gear and most canoes)
Bangor & Portaferry Coastguard S&R teams,
Hazardous Area Response Team.
Air Ambulance helicopter
Rescue 199 Coastguard Helicopter from Preswick,  Scotland (winched 2 from another Island)
1 emergency response ambulance
3 emergency ambulances

See official press release report from RNLI  below video click the first picture.

Yea, wee dander up and around Percy Bysshe and Cove cave, couple of the guys explored the caves.  I had a great solo camp in the woods, very mild weather and the sunrise was glorious.

Weather looks good for tomorrow. Hopefully see some of you at carrick little car park 11am. I might even turn up at 10am for a wee fry at the cafe 😉. I’ll be in a gold Volvo estate BV61 registration, meet at the car. If you need my phone number PM me. It’ll be a slow pace, my wife is even thinking of going!

Hi. I've started a meetup group that takes people hiking & camping round NI and I hope you don't mind but I've added a link to this forum on the homepage. If there's any concerns please let me know and I'll remove it. Cheers!
