I fancy this cruise myself but maybe next year now, that's if you guys have another trip next year, as the dates are too close to the Anglesey cruise, so will after give this one a miss, it would be good to get a few rib from down here to come up for the weekend on the 2013 cruise if that comes off

You're not wrong. I fecked half of mine on that forsaken ground. I think it's an overgrown carpark.

Hadd is Wrong (but otherwise cool ) - Life is short - RIB when you can. The second event might be cancelled. We took a chance on crossing the North Channel twice that weekend and we were back in September. Magic!

Took me an hour to load the 110, 2.5 hours to drive to Redbay, 1 hour to steal prepare the boat, oh, 4 hours to cruise to Easdale...

By the time we got there, we had done a day more than the rest!

Getting there was the fast bit. Going home was a lot more "interesting".

BTW, donegaldan was driving it, not me...
