Rich, his dad and I sailed out to the middle of the Firth of Forth to bag this confluence point.

   
The view out to where Rich and I thought the point was from the Forth Rail Bridge.  We were pretty close.

It took around 45 minutes to get to the area of the confluence point ... and then about another 45 minutes to get a good fix on the point with out GPS unit.  Rich managed to get this great shot, clearly showing we were at 56 degrees W, 3 degrees N.  Unfortunately, Rich thought he had not got a good picture - we then had a pretty frantic few minutes and ended up taking over forty pictures of the GPS unit...
