Sorry we can't make the trip. We have all been looking forward to it for a long time, this side of the pond.
He might work in mysterious way, but half way to Jura we is working monstrous
waves.
The weather looks good for you - have a good and safe one.

Disapointing but we hope you will try again in 2014

It had to happen at some point. The weather is something out of everyone's control. Respect the decision made. ERR is to be an enjoyable cruise and not an endurance event. Hopefully the uncertainty of this year won't put you guys off from organising similar for the 2014 event. Depending on the weather we may just run the same course if we have to alter what we do this year.

Have a safe season out on the water and should any of you venture to the Scottish west coast do call in at Easdale.

Yours aye,

Tony
