That's dinner booked for Saturday night and a pitch booked at the Highland Arts.


Is anybody else camping at the Highland Arts? The woman on the phone said it was quite for the weekend.

As we have watched the long range forecast it has shown everything from Force 2 and blue sky to Force 6 and snow showers for this coming Saturday. Long range forecasts are difficult to interpret however things appear to be settling down and if I take a personal view ( and there is still 5 days to go) I believe Friday may not be the greatest day. The wind will be dying through the day but the rain has to go through first. From late Friday the wind will drop with Saturday perhaps overcast to start but winds light. Sunday is to be a blue sky day.
Where we are fortunate, assuming the forecast is correct, is that the winds Thurs and Friday will be from the N/NE so this means the sea will flatten. Whilst there may be a bit of residual swell on the way down to Loch Tarbert it will be fine inside the Loch.
Returning up from Craighouse should be relatively easy in these conditions.

I will update the weather on Wednesday when Ted will also send out final information update.

Here's to sunshine and calm seas.

Tony



Okay Tony we are now Thursday any fiuther news re info and weather?

I am asking as a lot of guys will be starting to move or even on the move and some up-date would be appreciated.

Cheers

Here it is, I have been waiting for Theyr to update

Taking a look at the most recent weather forecast, it certainly is unlikely to be the blue skies and flat calm seas with winds 3mph as was forecast earlier in the week. My favourite weather forecast Theyr has not updated so from the rest my personal prediction is the low is tracking further south than initially predicted and we are likely to have wind speeds to Force5 or 6 and out of the south west.
We accept this is not ideal particularly for a circumnavigation of Jura however we claim the area has plenty of sheltered waters and perhaps now is the time to prove it.
Whatever the weather Easdale is ready for you all. With neap tides there will be plenty of water in the harbour. The Seafari pontoon is clear, there is wall space and of course many of the inside moorings are free. The Easdale Island ferry will be skippered by a member of Seafari. Ted will have our dinghy to assist with transport to and fro.
On arrival at Easdale you are welcome to check in at the Seafari Ticket Office w You can pick up a list of those we know will be attending The list includes phone numbers however your main contact point is the Seafari Ticket Office.
Out on the water may we remind everyone that you are responsible for your own safety. Everyone should wear appropriate clothing including a lifejacket.
We advise RIBs of similar size group together and keep to minimum group sizes of 3.
The aim of Loch Tarbert, Jura remains but we have the alternative plan ready. Craighouse (Jura) may still be viable calling in at KD/Barnhill. Those wishing to view the inner sanctums of Loch Tarbert by foot call in at East Loch Tarbert and the walk is about 1 mile. From Craighouse take a line perhaps via Skerivuile to Crinan, then up the east side of Luing and out through Cuan and back to Easdale.
If the weather is really poor we can dive through Cuan and keep to the sheltered areas inside all the islands.
May we remind everyone of the request to use the south entrance and avoid the area between Easdale and Innish Island.
Evenings
If you are joining us for food on Saturday please remember to book with Keren at the Puffer (01852 300022 or info@pufferbar.com) soonest. Both the Puffer Bar and The Oyster Bar are open throughout.

It just remains for us to wish you a safe journey to Easdale where a warm welcome awaits

Sorry guys - no can do! The forecast is too rough for us to chance it over from Cushendall. Hope it does give you all a window of calm ...


Now to unpack the boat

Yup. Ill be there. Just arrived in Dunstafnage and heading for Easdale tomorrow afternoon.
Got a new engine on the Searider now so shouldn't need a tow back this time.

Hope the tent doesn't blow away with the forecast wind!
