Western Scotland - 30 July to 6 August 2011

We've booked the big Redbay from Crystal Charters for the first week of August, and will be doing day trips from Craobh Haven.

It's a family holiday with smallish kids so I don't plan on doing any massive distances, but there are plenty of interesting places to visit without spending all day getting there. Corryvrecken, Tobermoray and Easdale and all on the "must do" list for starters

If anyone else is going to be out and about in the area that week it would be good to meet up.

John great base to cruise to many places some of which you have mentioned. There are one or two Ribnetters around that area whom I am sure will 'meet & greet'. If your are venturing a little further south towards the southern end of the sound of jura or even loch sween itself then please give me shout or better still lets us know what your rough plans are and maybe we could arrange something, like a meet up at a central point for some of us. It's a pity your not up for the Easdale get-to-gether.
What ever you do hope you have a great holiday here in the wonderful west of scotland, boating heaven!!

Dont let 'im in without checking his passport thoroughly men, and ofcourse demanding a few bottles of hooch to guarantee safe passage and that someone doesent let his tubes down ... .. If he wants to keep his windscreen wipers (if he has any) that might cost a half side of smoked salmon for the easdale boys though

Joking aside .. sure you'll have a good time John .. with some of the finest cruising sights in the world IMHO .. I'll be on the briney at that time ... but too far up for ye.

Now to business .. i'll make a wee space for you on my prayer mat for some weather

Sounds like I've timed it well! We came on one of the BIBOA weeks out of Dunstaffnage and Tarbert about 10 years ago. I'm pretty sure we met you then, in fact didn't you rescue us with a trailer wheel bearing?

Does Peter Zurrer still come each year?

I'm scheduled to be out and about that week too, so I'll keep an eye out for you.

I'll be helping with support for a group swimming across the Gulf of Corryvreckan on Sat 6th. Aug. Guess you'll be getting ready to go home by then though.

Let's hope the weather's good.

Tony

No, but I'll get you an Easter egg if you behave nicely!

Look forward to meeting up with you somewhere along the way.
