Hi All,

looking to organise promote a few cruises in 2014.

thinking of :

Largs to Portavadie - Weekend

Loch Lommond

A cruise maybe from St Andrews along the cost or somewhere

Anybody up for any of these or suggest alternatives...and suggest some dates - Portavadie one I will talk to Matt for a good weekend for the Marina...

I'd be up for St Andrews trip. Beautiful Fife coastline, especially if you could get out to the Isle of May from Elie. Plenty slips at Anstruther, Pittenweem, Crail, etc. Dates wise, some Saturday in April would suit.

No problem - will work something out hopefully we get good weather - Anstruther is closer to May Isle and not so far to travel and get Bass Rock too if weather fine. Also has few good foodie places & b&b 's if folk needed.

Has pontoons for overnighting if needed to.

I was thinking St Andrews to Kingsbarns or Crail with blast around to the St. Andrews bay.

IF IF IF weather is good window Bell Rock...

Sounds great. Having just done the Portavadie trip, i think it is fantastic, and there is so much to do in the area. The Dolphin show is the best of course

Should be the ERR in May as well.

What about a Scotland-Ireland trip. Trailer down to Portpatrick or ?? and head over to Ireland. Could invade Redbay at Cushendall

Ireland Sounds good - I haven't got boat to do that , but can be added to mix.

Port Logan easier launch from beach. Plenty of parking.
I'd be up for Ireland trip.

I have recently taken over the running of a marina and watersports centre on Loch Tay and will be looking to organise some sort of event on the loch for next season.
