WORLD STONE SKIMMING CHAMPIOSHIPS, Easdale Island, Oban 27th Sept 2009

The World Stone Skimming Championships 2009 will take place at Easdale Island just south of Oban on Sunday 27th September
Easdale Island is located in a fantastic RIB cruising area so why not make a weeknd of it. There is a safe and secure harbour. Pre skim dance Saturday evening.

I'm intending to be there Tony. By RIB if weather ok. Should be a bit more room in the harbour this year, as it's neaps?

RIB or not, I've got to defend my championship. I reckon there'll be tough competition this year. I've started on the fitness regime already.

Cheers Tony

That should do for the competition. Like I said, I think we 'Old Tossers' may well find it stiff this year.

I think the "Old tossers finding it stiff" all year round would help you prep for it. You need to build a right arm like popeye
