Hi,

Any idea yet of where your trips will be going? We could come over from somewhere like inverkip to join you.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Michael

very much weather driven decided at skippers briefing held every morning 1000hr we will try for ballycasle sanda gigha on the longer runs and shorter trips to inverrary and a trip to glasgow we stop frequently to regroup have coffee take photos etc we hope portavadie will be good in the evening as every one is staying on site or very close this is the first time we have cruised from portavadie but have done many from tarbert. alternatively you could contact us and then rv with us later on
