Look forward to hearing of any plans

Hi Nick2908. Unfortunately I am unable to make the trip that's already in my diary! I'm really annoyed about it but can't do anything about it. The weather looks like it may pick up at last this weekend!
Last year we went out of Ardglass and went round the Calf of Man and up to Douglas. Willk said he knew where he was going so we all followed him! Not that we had much choice since it was so foggy we just about could see each other! Even at that I got lost once on the way home and just managed to find a wake to follow - thankfully it wasn't the Liverpool ferry!

Good luck and enjoy if you do go.

with a "suggested" passage plan in yer arse pocket!

On mature reflection, I'd probably do that a bit differently now, but only because I'm more at ease with sounding overly OCD and Dictatorial....

Weather ain't looking good at the moment, Met office predicting gusts of 4-5 for the area. General winds are relatively light but not sure what sea states will be like and how long gusty periods will be.........

it was always unlikely that we would go on this one as I would be coming back home from the big boat friday night and then getting on t'little boat first thing in the morning. However the big boat has just been requested for sat and sunday so it looks like I will be at sea burning (lotsof) someone else's fuel Which is nice

So is anyone else going? Just had a look at the various webcams and it looks flat calm at the moment although I am now going to chek the forecast.
All being well and the forecast being reasonable we will be leaving tomorrow afternoon with a view to heading over saturday morning about 9-10am.

BruceB and any others...........
BruceB is 9-10am your arrival time in Douglas, or your leaving your source-port time? Saturday-right?

And, how many others are coming?
Let us know now so we can meet you and transport you to wherever. Navigation round the island is problematic during TT week but Cypman and I know all the backroutes.
If you dont let us know, we cant help you !

Bruce,if the wind is in the north and you dont do the IoM run but do a run along the coast towards kirkudbright etc, which will be sheltered, then we should be out in the cat on the solway. Our guys are only scheduled for maintainance jobs I think, so you are welcome to come aboard for a brew and facilities stop if we are not otherwise employed at the time. Hopefully you will get to the IoM though.
Phone or text before approach and I'll let you know how we are fixed at the time. pm sent with number.
