Went up to Tarbert at Loch Fyne late afternoon on Saturday (about 35 miles). Headed back yesterday morning, a bit of a jabble
. Recon it was gusting F10 at one point at Inchmarnock when a squall came through with 3m+ waves. Only other boat we saw was the Arran Ferry heading to Gourock all other ferries were off.
Had a WAFFI with us that had just came back from his second round the world sail, he loved it but said that he had never seen such short steep waves, welcome to the Clyde
I decided to take a camera with me for some pictures......................only I forgot to check it had a Flash Card
. One again the Redbay performed faultlessly and never took one directly over the bow................although she did take a few over her side at Ardlamont where you get the depth going from around 175m to 23m and the waves starting to stand.
Did both runs in the dry of the shelter......no oilskins required.
