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

You can go off people you know.

Alan, sorry to hear that, I suppose you can always hope he grows out of the footie or you'll never get afloat again! Look forward to seeing you at Gannavan.

OK folks - it is almost inevitable that there would be some call offs, but those who are able to make it (including anyone who looks out the window and fancies joining us) seem set to have the best weekend of the year so far (and possibly all year!) for Scottish SIB camping... ...I can tell you that took some organising!

I don't want to be too prescriptive, but the suggested route to begin with is:

Gannavan - West of Kerrera - Bridge over Atlantic - Sound of Luing and then round Luing ... and then see how its going weather, swell and small boat wise before deciding on the next step.

Its clear that Belnahua remains in our sights but ALternative Camp Site 1 on the map I posted last week might be better depending on the swell. The Gurnard is hopeful that this will finally be the time he gets to step foot on the Garvellachs too.

I'd expect we will return north via Easdale and come through the Sound of Kerrera for some variety. That is probably enough for most people but if anyone is really keen and wants to burn more fuel, time may allow it!

MEET AT GANAVAN (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...1094d11b1d31c4) 10AM ON SAT - IF POSSIBLE PLEASE BE READY TO GO AFLOAT AT 10AM.

If anyone doesn't have my mobile number and wants it PM me.
