would be good if you could join us either for a day or more
will pm you with further details
I try to keep the numbers down . As you know it is too hard to get lots of boats organised. We have no rules and you take your rib out at your own discretion. We do a couple of long trips (Ireland Gigha) the rest is around the clyde and up to glasgow etc. If weather to bad you can possibily join as crew We have a skippers briefing every morning and leave 1030hrs PROMPT or you can rv with us at some point say Rothsay Bay we have 8>9 ribs at present 4 from europe Sandbank has excellent slip Petrol as well B&B hotels at Hunters Quay 2 miles from marina B&B in Sandbank not so good. also chalet / caravan park 1 mile. Weather is guaranteed!!

Hi, stick us down for a definate maybe

Myself, wife, wains, sister and brother inlaw will be in Dunoon the weekend 23rd /24th May. Would be good to do a trip in company with my sister's new boat.


If anybody needs accomodation i.e a piece of grass to stick a tent up, get in touch.

(Will the impressive 'Hot Lemon' be there ?? what engines does that beasty have in her? Will we be expected to keep up? lol)

Fingers crossed for sun

The weather is guaranteed. Hot Lemon has been to a few cruises they blast about at 50kn then circle us then he has to wait till we get there we try for a cruising speed about 25kn stopping often to take in scenery or refreshment

Hi, I'd be interested in doing the Ireland trip but you've mentioned restricted numbers ... what's the situation with this? Also interested in the other Clyde trips. We are on the Clyde whenever we get the chance and the weather!
