I could've sat in that beer garden in Craighouse all day supping Guiness and Jura!

I was pleased with the boat, I'd only managed to put 10nm on it before the run so i was a little apprehensive about the run. Clocked up just under 100nm and burnt 140l of fuel. I dropped the oil out of the gearbox to see if everything was ok after rebuilding it, the oil is dirty but I expected it to be after changing the gears and bearings.

The engines flushed, boat washed and tucked away for another day.

It's nice to put some faces to the names and thanks to Tony and his team for all their hard work, oh and the shot of the funnel. Cheers.

Glad you enjoyed it Alan it was a great weekend and it was nice to meet you.

TR cancelled

Team Redbay now all safely home in Ireland. Great wx down to south end of Islay but after that

Thanks to everyone at Easdale, Tony Hill and his outfit, the other organisers, the footsoldiers - everyone, truly a great weekend.

Easdale - go there.

Absolutely brilliant weekend all round Chris but the wx did play a big part especially yesterday we could not have ordered better. Perfect advert for Easdale and 'The West' in general.
