I'm thinking about coming with my son but haven't registered as boats not ready still a few jobs to do before we can sea trial.so can't commit fully until we know we have a suitable boat to use.
Can we register closer to the date or do you need confirmed numbers?
I realise we will have to take pot luck with accommodation but I'm sure we will find something or maybe camp
Cheers
Ken

Ken you can do it either way in terms of registration what ever suits. No harm in registering with Carolyn with an understanding you may have to bail. There's always plenty of room to camp.

OK I'll maybe fill in the registration anyway still lots to do but if I do register I'm mentally committed anyway.
Is there somewhere to Moor and camping within walking distance as if the boat shapes up OK we might do the trip from largs round the mull depending on forecast

Tony Hill and his mob have been VERY good over the years about helping us moor larger RIBs in the sound (check Google Earth) where he has heavy moorings for his own boats. In foul weather we have brought 10m boats into Easdale Harbour which IS tidal access but it doesn't dry entirely although an outdrive leg might be sweating it on low springs.

The wee ferry runs to Seil regularly (kinda the mainland) where the delightful Highland Arts Center campsite is located 100m from the pier.

There are a couple of other possible boats from that part of the world but I haven't heard anything to date.

Cheers Willk I've been into the sound for lunch stops with the hard boat but never ventured ashore so not sure what the harbour is like etc.
The boat is 7.4m Delta so is on a drive if there is camping within walking distance then that is probably the way to go for us
if using a mooring how do you get ashore is a dinghy required? I'd rather not carry one if it's not essential
Would we need to arrange mooring in advance or is it a case of turn up and sort it on the day?

OK - first I need to flag that it's Tony's gig and my info is based on my own visits so may be obsolete. Past experience is that no tender is required - there are lots of craft on the water, plus Tony's SIBs and the ferry. The harbour is interesting - in so far as it looks a bit lairy but isn't. Bring lots of fenders and talk to Tony or his minions and you'll be right. The 7.4 will be best in Easdale Harbour on Tony's pontoon - absolutely no concerns there!


Best to give them a heads up (even the night before) if you can attend.

Easdale RIB Rendezvous 2016

Tides are neaps for the weekend. Whilst crowded, Easdale harbour will not dry out. As mentioned by Wilk, there are plenty of boats going back and forth between the harbour at Easdale Island and the mainland. Seafari will also have 2 X 5.2m inflatable dinghies on the move during the busy times.

Wilk -one of the originals, go on sneak some time away, you will be missed. Sunshine and calm seas ordered.

You will note that for the first time Eilean Eisdeal, the community trust is charging 10 per boat per night to moor in the harbour. Should you own a large boat and use one of the Seafari moorings the same will apply.

Reason for the charge - the community intends to rebuild the old island boat shed (currently derelict and roofless) so it can house the community tractor. The tractor is used to move large items around the island as there are no roads and to launch and recover boats. Our old grey Fergie is being battered by the weather and deserves better.
I hope you will agree this is a suitable way of raising funds.

Seems like an excellent idea.

Willk if you're not coming pass my number to Tom in case he needs someone to parade the new Corry for him ;-)
