Sunsporter, you'd both be welcome. If the weather is keich (being local you'll understand that!) we won't do the route shown and if it's really bad then as with last year there is the possibility we don't go out at all and just hide in the pub. Mid June is picked to make that less likely whilst avoiding midges for camping!
I can't remember if anyone brought an Aux last year. i didn't (cos it's in bits!). Whilst we suggest you should be self sufficient, there will be plenty of folk around who can fling you a rope. Worst case if you were at Portavadie (furthest point) when it conked out we might need to leave the boat somewhere safe and jump on someone else's boat to get home and then retrieve by car.
Nobody's engine skipped a beat last year and touch wood we will do as well this year.
