Anyone fancy a cruise up the Clyde again ?

This year/next year , anyone fancy it ?

I enjoyed the last one we did a couple of years ago We reached Jamaica st Bridge, and as always was, very interesting to see the estuary from the water as opposed to the roads ....

Best done at high tide, I'm game for it , last time it was fairly loose affair , but we had a flotilla going upstream, and worked out some decent stop offs for luncheon, tiffin, and general amusements ... (wife shopping)

sounds good - although I don't have boat on Clyde! They are new pontoons since then.

We stopped at the pontoons at Braehead at the back of the shopping centre last time, had a decent lunch with a beer and then explored up town to the city centre and then the Cart on the way back down before heading back to largs Probs best in middle months though as its a full day for many

I'm sure spaces will be available for those without boat

I saw those pontoons last year .. are you free to tie up there anytime ? or do you have to divvy up? Think someone does a pb course from there?
