Hi Mick here's a link to a previous thread where those who know tell them that dosen't HOW.
Hope it helps but as puffin says get your hands on a Cruising Guide or ask Kerny for a copy of all the stuff I sent him this year

Hiya Jambo ! No you weren't hallucinating . We did have a few quick words with yerself & young Willk !

As Dougie said....." follow the boat in front " but always make sure she's bigger than you !

Hope to be up again with Dougie & Scotribs next May !

If you trust your GPS, Draw straight lines between these:

56.4553, -5.39513
56.45578, -5.39108
56.45615, -5.38821

These coordinates were recorded using a Garmin GPS12 which has no WAAS capability, and therefore may have larger error margians than you may be used to. USE WITH DUE CAUTION!!!!!



Or, Keep to the Connel (Oban) side of the gap. (and if it's mid falling tide, mind the canoes!)
