It looks like the latest roll call is:

Poly (+Willk)
The Gurnard
9d280 ? Was sounding doubtful last I heard?
rab rib
Deano
Kaman

+ Tony and Mrs Hill in the evening?

Any others welcome - but actually this is quite a nice size group anyway.

AAAAARGH!!!!!!! I break spheres (trying to keep this polite) to escape and once again the germ warfare between the kids kicks in and I am now looking at a weekend of mopping puke.

So p'd off. Have a good trip. I'm off to find a beer.

9d280 - sorry to hear your troubles - sounds like all the more reason to get away before the lurgy catches you too!

OK my boat is ready (I think!). Kit is packed. Crew are in place. Setting off early doors tomorrow.

Remember change for parking if you are coming - pay for 2x 1 day!

Latest weather (Oban):

1000-1600 3kts W (shifting to N) Gusting 4kts sunny cloud (65%) small risk of a tiny shower, 11 degC.
1600-2200 4kts NE Gusting 5kts sunny cloud (67%) small risk of a tiny shower, 13 degC.
overnight 6-9kts NE Gusting 10kts cloudy, dry, 8 degC
Sun am 6 kts NE (shifting to N) gusting 7kts sunny - < 20% cloud 10 degC
Sun pm 5 kts N gusting 9 kts sunny - < 10% cloud, 12 degC

So don't forget the midge repellant and sun screen!

I quite fancied this initially, as usual other things came along ( friends heart attacks X2) but the main one was the local primary school fundraiser on the Sunday 14 th which has TONIGHT been cancelled due to the weather forecast !!!!!! FFS

Have a great time, I won't miss the midges but I'd have enjoyed a beer, a cigar and a bit of a natter.

Boat packed ready for the early launch.

I've packed you lads some venison burgers for a bite to eat. I know Gurnard likes a burger, that's if there is any Gurnard left, the midgies tonight are BRUTAL, himself and Kaman will be like dried prunes.

Thanks for the great weekend

Gents,
Superb weekend with decent weather and no midges!
I can tick off my bucket list The Corrievrechan also.
It helps when we are all of reasonable sound body and mind - maybe folks were being polite on the first meeting.
Only problem I have is next weekend will be a hard act to follow
