Jayson Cavill Interview (link in bio)
With almost a week since the 2020 Spine Race drew to a close, we caught up with Montane Athlete @Cavilloutdoor to hear about his inspiring - yet ultimately unfortunate - performance in this year's race. .
We talk kit, preparations, how last year's race influenced this year, and - most importantly - the spirit of racing.

Waves crushing on the coast of Ireland during storm Brendan.

So now I’ve finally fixed my phone after carrying all these logs I can take a finished photo. This bad boy came down smashing through our gate and blocking our driveway. It was left to me to clear up with the help of new view tree specialists
A great driftwood haul thanks to storm Brendan last week 🌬🌊 That's a barrow full of work to be done. So i'll start with a cleansing bath & scrub which will bring it up clean & nice.... Sure I may even do the same for myself later tonight 🛀😄
Sardines are the hot topic this month! 🐟⠀
The spotlight of @bbctwo’s #ThisFishingLife as well as the star of the show at Newlyn #fishmarket after #StormBrendan , we’re not surprised by all the love for this little salty fish.⠀
The #pilchard , as it’s known down our way, is an old #Cornish favourite 🍴⠀
That’s why we spoke to Mevagissey fisherman Chris Blamey about what it’s like spending your career catching them.⠀
In our latest blog, Chris explains how they are caught, how to eat them, and how he got into fishing.⠀

One of the jewels on the route that we couldn't visit due to the storm; this breathtaking castle ruin has inspired artists and writers such as C.S. Lewis. Perched dramatically on the cliffs of the North Antrim Coast, it was built around 1500 by the local MacQuillan family and later seized by the Scottish MacDonnell clan who eventually established a small town here.

The allotment is already starting to look different since #StormBrendan last week. The #vegepod has been relocated to hopefully a less windy part of the allotment although the plastic top/hoops is unfixable. By the end of the weekend, weather permitting, the seed work bench should be back in place but slightly different 😉
Following a week of storms, please be careful out on the #HebrideanWay as there has been some damage along the route.
Note the new advisory and diversion at Loch Druidibeg, South Uist (Section D - Howmore to Liniclate) where part of a bridge has been blown away!
More information on our website.
Please get in touch with us if you come across any damage.

Ascending #penyghent and Storm Brendan was making itself known💨 I know everyone always says the previous/present shit weather is the worst they’ve ever experienced. But it truly was. It was a full on assault of storm force winds, rain and hail. Of course I did my usual and didn’t put on enough clothes in time, didn’t eat and arrived in Hawes a total wreck. The volunteers there were absolute angels 💙💙 I used the storm hours as a benchmark when things got tough later in the race. Nothing was as bad #spinerace #mymontane#pennineway#stormbrendan

While Mully went XL and Lanza threw blue-hued perfection, it was wet and wild in Britain's south-west corner when Storm Brendan bowled into town earlier this week. Catch a full gallery of the swell from all around Europe at the link in our bio. Photo @lugarts
Europe has been absolutely pumping over the last few days. This is Northern Ireland clean as a whistle in the wake of #stormbrendan . Check a full gallery of highlights from the swell at the link in our bio.
It was pretty wild, but beautiful at Porthleven this morning. Storm Brendan was showing its might and battering the coastline. I sat and watched for 20 minutes, catching elements that interested me and then later combined the best 3 images.
The English experience is rain. ⠀
Waterlogged locks of hair sticking to your cheek, water splashing up over your socks and into your shoe, the constant harrying of the wind in your face and pockets. As #StormBrendan blows the UK about, enjoy (?) this painting of a sea storm by John Constable, who really captures the mood.⠀
