I did my level 2 with greg at seaforce. He is probably much better set up than people realise - as before I went there I had never noticed the pontoon etc at the tall ship. there is also plenty of parking at his site - although I suspect you are all doing yoker a disservice you make it sound like bandit country - either that or you are driving far too fancy a car.

I would have been interested in tagging along (although not sure if my little plastic boat would be fast enought) but unfortunately I have other plans for part of the day.

Speedy - perhaps next time more info sooner might be worthwile - two days is vague, no idea of timings and proposed destinations, ranges, speeds, etc means noone is quite sure what they are applying to get involved with.

How can you do an area like Yoker a disservice making it sound like bandit country?
Just making it "SOUND" like bandit country is a major improvement on "CALLING" calling it the bandit country that it actually is...............
And I am someone who lived in Glasgow most of my days, not Bearsden and the suburbs but Glasgow itself.............

My mother still lives close to the Renfrew side of the Ferry and you couldn't pay me to live there, and thats the "good" side of the ferry crossing!
Bearsden's not so bad to pronounce, Milengavy is better
