Hi.

The date is confirmed as Sat 25th Aug. Will be floating out of Largs Marina just after 9am.....so get your boats in early! (or the night before).

Have already managed to pester a few folks for sponsorship.

Will be offline now until the 24th Aug.

******Will check the weather on the 24th, and confirm if it looks ok that evening via this forum*********.

We fully intend to go ahead unless it's a howling gale or tipping down with rain. Anything is possible!

Aim to be at Lamlash about 1030ish, to pick up the Grocer... Then up to Tighnabuich for lunch, then Rhu, then back to Largs.

Be aware, there are limited fuel stops between Brodick and Rothesay, i.e. up the west side of Bute.

Hope to see you all then..

Cheers

One or both of us will be there/here/somewhere; minor staffing problem* but Mrs. Grocer has had a Cunning Plan...





*Damned inconsiderate, I call it.
Going on holiday. In summer. I ask you. I'm too flipping good to them. Next year, no-one has any holidays. At all! (except me, and of course Mrs. G. )

Dang me!

Well so it is.

Met forecast looks not unpleasant at the moment, but who knows...

...anyway, Mrs. G. sanctioned the purchase of a pair of shiny new Geckos.

She is pleased that she no longer suffers from cabriolet hair or weepy eyes, but is not wholly approving of the flat-top hair style.

What this inconsequential drivelling means is that, unless a minor problem should crop up (e.g. earth-asteroid interface) we intend to participate in this watery wandering.

We have a selection of waypoints which may be of some use; but they don't cover the entire route. More homework needed, perhaps? ("I left it on the bus/the dog ate it/my kid brother smoked it" - select as appropriate)

lost in the cause!

sorry to put a damper on this,but if this is to raise money for the RNLI would it not be better go a a smaller cruise and use less fuel, then donate the saving rather than give most of your money to the goverment?
