Corrywreckan 21st Sep

Hi all,
intending to go, weather permitting, to the Corrywreckan for a run round Scarba and a picnic/ barbie on the beach nearby. Neap tides so safe for run round the Corry and back through the Grey Dogs (or t'other way round) with a barbie in the bay nearby.
I will be leaving from Cuan Sound but there are plenty other places to launch, sometime TBC but probably around 10:30-11:00.
Weather permitting its a nice run and if really nice a run out to the Monastery on the Garvellachs may be the picnic place instead.
Company welcome!

Just looked at the forecast Bruce, looks as if it'll be a bit wet and choppy. I was out for three days last week in all the wind and rain and was hoping the weather would get better for Sunday. Looks as if it'll be great from Monday onwards. I need the good weather for an ongoing project, so may wait until then before getting afloat again. May come and find you if there's an improvement. Have fun.

Its certainly calm and dry at the moment and this is the forecast for tomorrow.
We should be out but if it is just us the plans will depend on what we fancy, no sun means no barbie so we may go diving locally somewhere in the boat instead.

Yeah! Just looked at the maps. Fine tomorrow morning, rain by lunchtime, fine late evening. Not really looking good for a BBQ I think. Why not work tomorrow and take Monday off?

Reckon you'll be better off diving - you'll be out of the rain at least. Pity, I was quite looking forward to a BBQ. Hey Ho! No one else seems interested either - perhaps you wore them all out scurrying up the Clyde the other day. Cheers, Tony

Dug out the dive kit and found a fault as I was putting it together. Thought the weather was going to be wet so didn't go and went for a run on the bike instead to Kinlochleven.
About 2pm realised it would have been fine for a boat run as it stayed dry and prteyy calm all day, b**ger!
I decided to fit the rest of my electrical system instead that was still oustanding so at least for next weekend all the lights etc will work plus I'll have some music!

Yep! No rain, not a lot of wind. Bloody dark though. So diving you wouldn't have seen a thing. BBQ would have been cold and dreary, even with good company and it did look like rain all day. I think you made the right decision, so don't feel too bad.

Music? Goodness me, this boat of yours seems to be getting quite posh. Do you have those fancy blue deck lights too?

Tomorrow and Tuesday I'm off doing a bit of videoing in the sunshine for a project for the 'Out there for Argyll' initiative. Should be away on the boat for a couple of days, one maybe two nights. My first ever video effort is on there. Look for www.ForArgyll.com and go to the Ardfern community. It's called 'I don't have a dog' and was a spur of the moment job, so don't be too harsh.

I'm sure that one day, maybe next year, we'll get a barbie organised and the weather will be good and Pig Bay will be full of RIB's and there'll be so many people that in no time at all we'll have venison roasting on a spit and the local's will hear the music from Bruce's boat and they'll flock to join in the ceilidh and the distillery will roll up a cask of the product and never will there have been such a party on the Island of Jura in the living memory of the oldest inhabitant and the tales will be told for generations to come of the greatest ceilidh of all time on the shores of the Gulf of Coire Bhreacain.
