I'd forgotten about that. You will indeed be disporting yourselves in my back-yard. Do you know approximately where you'll need fuelling and is it Petrol or Diesel?

well all weather depending i guess, rib can make it all the way but as were just going for fun ,so we'd like a good spot to stop eat, maybe beer, crew change and off again, or if crack is good stay the night! somewhere around tory island but on main land thats its not to far away for the support van.

Ribdraft,

For a quick stop, Magheraroarty Pier is handy, but exposed and remotish.

For an overnight, fuel and beer stop, I'd suggest the quay at Downies/Downings. It's about 13Nm east of Tory.

It has a Harbourmaster if you need assistance etc.

Nice pub at the top of the hill though with spectacular views over Tory Sound.
