Anyone going from Largs? Humming and hawing but weather is kind of putting me off at the mo...... Must have turned into a fair weather sailer in my old age!

Mebbies...

Mrs. Grocer and myself intend to leg it out of the emporium as soon after 1800 as possible; leap into "Cowal" at Lamlash, fix the ARW, pour a bucket of go juice in and then trundle up towards Sannox (the measured distance thingy) for about 1900, using Arran as a huge wind break

Well, that's the plan at the moment.

Conditions didn't seem too bad over here from the 1230 ferry: once you've got over here it's calmish for about half a mile from the shore. Still breezy, mind you. There's a wee bright patch beyond Sanda at the moment - maybe it'll get here in time

If you're out and about, gis a wave

As optamists, we've got the Barbie out, some deck chairs, beers and sunglasses.....with viewing from the garden.

Well let's be philosophical.

I suppose it's a lady's privilege to be late.

And to change her mind about where she's going.

Especially if she's royalty

Never mind, it was an interesting whizz up and down the measured distance.
We amused the crowds even if no one else did

Oh, and she's somewhere around here:

(or she was when I wrote this.)

Time for tea...
