Arran as Jambo says . Both involve a slight walk - do you have portables or a jerry can? Other option I supopose is insted of a lap, straight down the sound & pull in at Campbeltown for lunch / refuel?

Plenty of options.

Hi guys, was thinking of tagging along with you guys on Sunday if that ok? I would launch and set off from Largs at same time as you 9D280 and am happy to go along with whatever you guys decide on destinations.

I just have a couple of bits and pieces to finish off on the boat tomorrow the should be good to go.

OK, HEre is the plan:

I'll launch tomorrow evening, check everything is still working, and meet Jono at Largs marina for an estimated 8.45 dep.

Motor up towards Rothsay to meet AMac around 9, then round the top of Bute to meet Perroboy c. 9:30 (Assuming 20-ish Knots)

Then we figure out what to do next!


Met office looking promising, but the Beeb this morning had the front moving a bit faster & predicting snow! A day like today would be perfect.

I'll send you all a PM with my mobile, but as it will be in an inside pocket, don't expect an instant answer after about 08:45. I'll monitor CH 16 & 77 on the vhf, if you want to play with MMSI, that number is on the left, position requests are set to "auto reply".

So, all being well, see you all on Sunday morning.

I've just realised my first paragraph implies I'm meeting Jono at 20:30-ish tomorrow evening. I know I said I was keen to get out, but that should have read:


I'll launch tomorrow evening, check everything is still working, and meet Jono at Largs marina Sunday morning for an estimated 8.45 dep......

My various "leaks"* suggest that Abhainn Rí is now a force to be reckoned with - you need to update your profile, btw.

* Those passengers that cadged a ride with you
