How to have a long memorable boating season

Hi guys ..just dropping in to wish you all a great New Year and to have a fantastic boating season in 2019 .

To ensure I have a long memorable season Ö I had my first outing as soon as the Hogmanay cobwebs cleared.

Last time I was out in Loch Goil was on the hottest day of last summer. It was a superb days boating on flat calm blue sea.

This year I was on Loch Goil on 2nd January and in contrast it was the coldest day of the year so far. It never got above freezing point. However it was another superb day on flat calm grey sea.

The video tell the story. Hope you enjoy it and perhaps it will inspire you to have a long boating season in 2019 too.

I really appreciate the effort putting together this video.
People that don't boat miss out on experiences and visuals that we experience on every trip out.

Very nice start to the year, thanks Donny.


We were off Poole today, not quite as cold (or as picturesque) as that but a great day out all the same and a bonus to be out so early in the year.



Cheers,


MM

Hi guys .. many thanks for your comments and Im delighted you enjoyed the video.

It was some of the folk on here that talked me into talking on the movies and although I was reluctant to begin with, I am happy the way things are improving. I enjoy making them and absolutely delighted others like watching them. Thanks you and have a great new year

Yep as I put on the Youtube comments great to see you out, everything of ours is ready to go but I bet March will be soonest. We have a lot of family distractions this year re our main holiday so can't be away 2 weeks as normal and need to be within a couple of hours of home... so will just take one week in the muddy East during the Summer then possibly snatch a week visiting "The Cafe" up North in September.

We've actually watched back through quite a few of Gurnard videos over the Christmas holiday... walking ones as well due to daughter's interest. They're often better due to their slower pace and greater observation than many travel/geographical type stuff on TV.

Sat down to enjoy episode one of the new Paul Murton Grand Tours of Scotland's Lochs the other night as the TV guide said it was about Loch Sween. A quick sniff around Kilmory bay/Chapel then we were North of Sween trying to find some beaver (Donny never wastes time looking for beaver on his videos!)... by the end of the 30mins we were already at the North of Loch Awe. All too rushed for me.

Yes David I turned that episode on waiting for some really good footage of the inner reaches of the loch. But what a disappointment!!
