The plan is starting to come together

Whilst its still too far away to be certain about the weather all the signs are promising that we should make it out into the Firth of Lorne. Exact route, destination and camp site will depend on the wind direction and strength on the day - but building on the routes discussed previously here is a wee map to put points into perspective (this is intentionally an OS map NOT a chart - don't use it for navigation). I've also included a gpx file with these points. NOTE: don't assume you can sail directly to those points (and some may actually be on land!).

The Gurnard dropped me a note:

Quote:
Is it Perhaps worth posting a tick list of stuff to consider taking ?

Reason I mention ... is I went wild camping last week with a couple of guys I know..and presumed they knew what to take.It was a hiking wild camp ..so we had to travel light. One guy was fine..the other guy weighed himself down with junk like a heavy bowie knife..tins of food etc... but didnt bring a change of clothing. We got soaked first day..so he was miserable second day and cut it short.

Here is a rough list of stuff Im taking..obviously everyone doesnt need Bucket Bogs and stoves etc.. but it might be worth mentioning stuff to take like food for two days.. change of clothes.. .. dry shoes etc

Sometimes folks miss the obvious if they are not used to it..and we cant just nip round to the shop to get matches if everyone forgets

I will have most stuff like that ..so shouldnt be a problem..but Im not supplying others with dry clothes etc

Tent
Inflatable Lilo
Sleeping bag (Kept in Dry Bag)
Change of clothing and towel (Kept in Dry Bag)
Change of footwear in case one gets wet

Food for two days
Water for two days
Cup plate knife fork spoon
Tin opener if taking tin food
Disposable BBQ and Fire wood
Portable Gaz stove and pan for boiling water for coffee
Lighter
Strong Bin Bag to remove all rubbish

Toilet paper
Toilet gear..example soap..wet ones ..deodorant
Bucket and elsan liquid

Gravy and Guiness :-D
I'd assumed you were all ugly enough to look after yourselves - but it can't do any harm!

Ugly? Check!

Stay dry, stay warm, stay fed. Common mistakes are forgetting an essential (like tent poles!) followed by really lousy packing resulting in damaged/mixed/wet/lost contents. There will be enough can-openers/matches/knives to go around but a dry change of cloths, dry sleeping bag or cooking fuel might be in scarce supply. I'll be setting my kit out this weekend and having a play - it's been a while

Milling over in my mind all that I need to pack for this little
excursion.
The weight of liquid alone - petrol, water, beer and drinking spirit is enough to give you a hernia!
This is going to be one heavy little Sib.
Will be a case of launch the Sib from the trailer - then a dozen trips to and from the car to transfer and pack up the goodies for the trip.
Same again when bringing the Sib ashore for the camp.
Hope the weather plays ball and my back holds out!
Midgies were hell tonight in my back garden - hope they are slower of the mark up in Argyle!
