That sounds fine to me Tony..and Im sure we will have a leg stretch in Easdale at some point..but Poly's the man the sets the course..of course..assuming all agree

And you are correct... At last.. I felt summer has hit Scotland today.. at least over the Costa Del Clyde.

To celebrate.. the Saltire was flying in the sky.. and I did a 64 mile round trip.. down a very fine Loch called Fyne.. round Inchmarnock and back again




I even dipped a toe in the crystal clear water..but although it looks more Mediterranean that grey Clyde..its still too cold for me to swim in.





I needed to get my sea legs ready for the Scottish SIB meet..make sure everything worked ... and I hope these tropical photos ..put you in the mood for the weekend guys

Tony, look forward to seeing you. call Imposter on ch 77 or dsc me using mmsi in my profile, and we will confirm where exactly we have ended up. Otherwise see you in the pub.

I am dealing with some last minute boat modifications but expect to announce firmer plans this time tomorrow...

Additional guinness storage. Gurnard was worried he might not enough if two irishmen might be there!

No need to worry about me Poly...its only one night’s supply I require..and I have been busy refuelling from a camp the night before.. just make sure those Irish guys bring enough for themselves..I know from past experience..salt air can give the Irish a raging thirst.





Also..there is a major problem we forgot to warn about or take into consideration. My brother and mates may look like adverts of the Lomo family ..but today they are fine...on Loch Fyne..







On the other hand..my face today looks like a pavement pizza after a night on the tiles. I wore a baseball cap and my ears.. cheeks.. and nose are brighter that a glass of Willk cider with sun tan. But my baldy scalp looks like a bottle of milk.

If you have wide brimmed hats.. bring them. Also..the midges are out now..so perhaps a head net or at least some midge repellent is worth bringing

Yeah - the sun is back with a vengeance - got my pasty face scorched on the water yesterday too!

The other Paddy is looking unlikely - bit of a flap at work so we'll see what happens....

Sorry guys..last minute change of plans...

With the weather so good today Kaman and myself cant wait until tomorrow to head for Loch Etive.. so we have decided to head up today and wild camp there until Saturday morning ..when we will meet you all at Ganavan bay ..as planned.

So the other unexpected requirement.. bring a clothes peg.. I may smell like an old fisherman.. by the time I get to Belnahua. Hope you guys working in offices can feel sorry of the self inflicted punishment Im going through ... by wild camping for almost a week now
