Tony thats great! I am still unsure as to wether my boat will be back by that time but I am still hoping. is there anyway you can show a list of who as registered and there details it might spur a few more takers. Just a thought as it seems to be common practice with all the other 'gatherings'

I have registered and hopefully will get there. Will have a crew of 3 plus the boss - and 4 sets of dive kit (just in case ! ) Would be a shame not too

I've not registered yet, just need to double check the dates. But if I'm coming I'll chuck some kit in if I can cadge a lift as there's not a huge amount of room in my SR4.

I have never got round to diving off Colonsay but I have a few contacts on the island via work. I might ask them to see if they have any marks or sites worth a splash.
Stuart, even if you don't have room we would have to probably combine some boats crews to go diving anyway just to get boathandlers. If the diving goes ahead I am sure something can be arranged.....

Belnahua is also worth a splash although after around 11m it goes all "funny"

Easdale Rib Rendezvous

I have been asked by if there is any entertainment/catering on offer over the weekend at all?

Cheers

Update and social gathering Saturday evening

There are now 40 RIBs registered for the event. Still room for more.

Regarding food and a social gathering.
Food is available at both The Oyster Bar www.seilislandpub.co.uk and
The Puffer Bar www.pufferbar.com
Advanced booking advised at both establishments

The Easdale Island ferry (3 minute crossing) will be offering a late service and we are sure there will be plenty of boat movements throughout the weekend.

SATURDAY EVENING
The intention is to have a social gathering at THE PUFFER BAR.
There will be a BBQ showcasing the best of local produce, plus some live music in the bar. To ensure there is sufficient hand caught scallops, Langoustine, wild Seil venison, Argyll Pork Booking is advised. Tel 01852 300022
For those who haven't been to Easdale Island, enjoy the sunset overlooking your RIB in the harbour from the decking of The Puffer.

A number of RIBs have indicated that they will be in the area for longer than the weekend. Easdale is a great base and we can put people in touch. Seafari Adventures will offer weather and cruising information as required. If you wish to use the harbour the week before or after the rendezvous please just make contact harbourmaster@easdale.org

Hi Tony great news and all down to you!! All we need now is the weather God to shine upon us. Is there any chance you could update your attendees list and wether they are trailering or coming by sea, my reason is twofold it would let people see who is going and whether or not they could arrange a rendevous as it would be a pity if people were trasvelling from same area and independently, I am a great believer in company whether on sea or land. It is all shaping up nicely and it will be good to put faces to names so I am looking forward to the social gatherings, so will need to remember the paracetamol!! Maybe leave the rib and get pick up by car
