Cracking day out....got quite a few vids so will upload in due course.
A few pics mean time though and a mini "Gunard style".
Plan was to meet Last Tango at Largs (ish) circa 9.30am
Just about to cast off at 9am, phone goes..."I've left my boat keys at home, it is 2 hours there/back"....DOH!
Plan B, I'll head to Lamlash and we can meet up there back of 11 bells or so then-sorted!.
Trundle out the marina 9.30am and greeted with perfect weather and low tide.
About a 15 mile run down to North of Arran from Kip, i get 2/3 Mile off the N/E of Arran and it starts to rain...where the heck did that come from!!!!. Decided to stop and have a wee bite of Lunch and watch the single rain cloud right up the Kyles of Bute. After about an hour of pottering around looking for basking sharks and waiting on Last Tango...they make an appearance, we are at the north end of Arran.
Decide to check out Corrie, very small harbour on the East side, looked very dodgy to enter at the tide we were at so decided against it.
Had a look at the other Harbour in Corrie...it looked worse...check the rocks out!!! pic courtesy of paulsaundersphotography.com
Oh well, let's try Brodick behind the ferry pier, off we go again and see a Basking Shark, first one i've ever seen in 20 yards boating around these parts.
Brodick is a no go, ferry approaching fast so we tail it out the bay round to Lamlash.
WOAH...another fin just outside the bay, huge one now.
