Yup.. looks like I will be meditating at the Garvellachs after all Poly.. early Sunday morning could well be flat calm

Friday is also looking good so I am heading for Taynuilt and Kellys Pier launch on Friday morning. A days fishing and exploring the loch is on the cards for me any anyone else who wishes to have a Friday meet

Iím meeting Kaman at the pier around 9am to 10 am..and anyone else is more than welcome. A1an..bmb779 ..still interested in Friday ? If you are and intend arriving later.. we wont be far ...so could arrange to meet at the pier if you post a rough expected time of arrival

I intend targeting a little ling for my evening dinner.. at Bonawe Quarry..10 mins from the pier





Also..myself and Kaman are thinking of wild camping on the loch side on the Friday night. We will get up early and be at Oban .. Ganavan Bay for the 10am meeting. I have retired the Tesco Value Tent and invested my pension lump sum in a Vango Banshee 300 tent. Here it is at the proposed camp place. Nice view huh ?





And of course a wild camp wont be the same without a fire..so I will have plenty wood too :-D





Anyone else interested in the Friday Loch Etive doo ..just step up and put your name in the submit post box

Extra capacity?

Does anyone have a spare seat (or wear patch ) available for a surplus Irishman? He's very competent crew and good craic and we'd slip you a few gallons of motion lotion and a some (real) Guinness by way of material compensation.

Thanks muchly - I have a seat on Poly's yoke but a friend has asked about joining in the merriment. If you can spot him a space that would be very much appreciated - we can swap around when you get tired of one of us. Of course, his missus may yet ground him

No problem Willk..the more the merrier. It will be good craic.. dump the extra motion lotion..it might make me sea sick..but bring the Guinness.

I have never met you..so he can call himself Willk..and I wont know if its you or him.

If he can drive..he can take a turn so I can get my photos from up front. I will see you all at Ganavan Sands..on Saturday 10 am

A view of Belnahua and The Garvellachs

i am currently sitting in the garden looking out at both. It is blue sky all around. I agree the local forecast is looking exceptional. I went past both islands today by boat. There is still some swell at belnahua but it was not such as to prevent landing and camping.
Couple of questions
I do not think I will be able to join you for the weekend but could slip out to belnahua Saturday night to meet up if that's ok with you all. Wife and I will come in her 3.4m Humber to keep to the theme.

Are you likely to swing by Easdale? Visiting the island would be easier for us as we hope to be busy. I can make sure there is space on the wall near the pub

Tony
