Are we going to stop for lunch en route either on a beach with a picnic or somewhere with facilities? Lunch always tastes better when it's made by someone else!
The weather looks damp but not too bad in terms of wind.
We could go to ettrick bay and go to the excellent cafe there which will mean facilities for the ladies. It's a shallow sandy beach which I've used lots of times without incident.
Could also look at tarbert up loch fyne or Lochranza on Arran. Both are roughly on the way.

Your best talking to David Hill - I busy doing a Sea Safety Day at Broughty Ferry Harbour on that day.

The plans will depend on weather, I think bring food just incase they can't or don't reach safe haven with food. You can always buy your sandwiches!

DDZ marine & Largs Marina are supporting the event.

Well that was a hard day. Visibility bad, heavy rain and very lumpy seas. 5 boats including the biggest rib I have ever seen, a 12m open rib with twin inboards that sounded awesome (wont fit on the driveway though)
We went to portavadie for lunch and went across to tarbert then south down loch fyne. I was amazed that I didn't lose any fillings as that was rough with waves coming from south and west directions piling on top of each other leaving big holes to drop into.
We bailed on the stop at rubodoch as we still had to recover the boat and tow back to the east.
Thanks to David hill for hosting the event and I was sold on launching at Largs rather than kip as it was much more civilised.
