18th June - Greased Lightning makes here turn to appraoch the jetty at Corpach
Fort William - Tuesday 18th June

Geased Lightning arrive and have an interesting time in the wild conditions getting their boat alongside and delivering their runners. The solution is a 'handbrake turn' a bit of reverse and some cunning steering!

The conditions here are stable, in other words it is still blowing a gale and the rain is coming down like bullets.

The team set about getting their runners ashore in the gathering twilight.

Too few fenders, too few berths!

The team make a smart turn before.....

...."all ashore for running?"

As the darkness falls the runner from Greased Lightning head off for a wild and stormy night.
