Whitehaven - Bangor - Islay - Bangor - Whitehaven

I have 3 days - 24, 25 and 26 July and thinking about a little trip as August now looking v busy.
Not ideal for most folks datewise, but woud welcome some company on any of the legs.
Weather permitting - Whitehaven (launch) - Bangor (fuel) - Rathlin Island - Port Ellen - Bangor (fuel) - Whitehaven.

Would like to see the sights and enjoy the locations a bit - so would value any suggestions
about what to see and where to stay.
Also - never launched at Whitehaven - so any one with any helpful hints on that,
would like to hear them
thanks

Change of plan!

pre-flight checks
revealed no working bilge pumps,
and fearing the worst I took the hatches out and felt round but the pumps were all intact. Problem turned out to be at the Switches/fuses end, and I spent most of the morning sorting that out.
Then decided to do some trailer housekeeping and replaced the winch strap, and a worn rubber block on the bow snubber.
Now working out a plan for tomorrow and friday which may mean staying on the East Coast and doing Whitby tomorrow, then Farnes on Friday and the Sunderland Air show Saturday.
