Jeff, we are also coming (in a Diddy wee boat). it's unlikely I will aim for oransay, especially with the family on board, unless there is totally amazing weather. However we will be doing some shorter more local stuff. I think we are up Fri to Tues, also in Balvicar.

poly we are up Thursday to following Friday hope to see you, it might not be doable in the SIB unless its like it was for round jura flat calm in any case there's lots to sail around i like the run under the bridge and round or up and back if its rough.
there's a boat yard in balvicar with a slip might be worth launching from there very sheltered.

cheers
