I have been round the south side and there is not many sheltered coves to go in plus the spots we could get onto all have camper-vans where as portavadie is by Boat only unless you walk in through the thick dense woods witch I donít think many people will do the numbers do have a wee bit to play with but if you where to do the hole of the island & Bute it would really take three days it is to long to ask people to Boat that long for two days and takes the fun out of it there is a spot that can be used but the owner will only allow small amount of people if at a later date in the year I might do it again I will post it but it will be a three day trip but there are other areas that will be covered first if you would like to come on some of these trips I will keep you posted

......thanks for the explanation. Makes perfect sense. We donít want to arrive only to find a load of Motorhomes watching sky1 on their tvís and spoiling our peace .

So long as Iím ok on this trip Iím hoping to do many more. That was a key reason in getting my sib.

See you next month

Question: do I need an anchor for this trip? It's about the only thing I haven't got yet.

Yes it would be good but if you where hard pushed you could get away with rope to shore but at your own risk

Itís quite likely that you wonít use an anchor on the trip but that is not quite the same as donít need one! I am assuming you have transom wheels or some other way to manhandle your boat up the shore - if itís too heavy for that then you really do need an anchor.

Personally I wouldnít take any small boat out on the Clyde without an anchor. On this trip you have the advantage that there will be other boats around if you get in difficulty - but donít presume that they will always be in sight or looking in your direction. The worse the conditions are (and hence most pressing any problem is) the more the group tends to get a bit spread out as people pick their own route through the waves and different boats/helms settle into their own comfort speed.

For the sake of 40 quid Iíd get one, because if this is early on your sib learning journey - after this trip youíll be desperate to get out and do more and an anchor really should be an essential for that.

Something like this would do the job: https://www.marinescene.co.uk/produc...SABEgLZ1PD_BwE

If you are buying the bits rather than a ďkitĒ then Iíd probably look to go longer on the rope, you could afford to go narrower (beware too thin is very hard to handle). My anchor is rigged with about 30m of line but I have a second similar length I can join to it if I need to anchor somewhere deeper.

1.5-2kg is probably plenty for most medium sized sibs with a good anchor. You can get cheaper still by using a grapnel style (which are also easier to stow on a sib) but donít skimp on the weight then.

Hi H.H
I'll be coming along.
I possibly might make it along on the Friday but not sure?
Where are you intending to camp Friday night?
