A change in weather and tide for the return is always challenging but with the air floor puncture that must really have concentrated the mind!

Would have been amazing video if the camera was mounted to the boat

I think I agree with HH on this one.
A bit dodgy being left on your own in worsening weather.
Agree the rest of the group would not know about his battery problems and hole in the floor-still I would have thought they would have stuck together, otherwise what is the value in the group?
The alternative would have been to pair-up beforehand.

Hi guys..so that there is absolutely no ambiguity to this thread as Gary mentioned in the video that I was leading the group at the Ross of Mull.

It is true.. I was involved in the group and suggested a two night away wild camping trip. First night was at Balfours Bay.. second night was in Loch Buie.. both on the southern coast of Mull. We were all fully aware the winds were going to be F4 on day two...and they were from the north therefore we were in sheltered waters. Its why I suggested that route.

However Gary CHOSE to go back on day two..I personally advised him that it would be rough and that I would not recommend the crossing as the waves would build as soon as he was out the shelter of Mull. Myself and the main group camped at Loch Buie as per original plan and enjoyed a very comfortable crossing on the following day. The weather forecasts were accurate for the three days

Im sure Gary will back this up.. he wanted back because it was a wet day. I cannot force adults to follow my suggested plans..however..it has made me very wary of taking strangers on these kind of trips in the future. I do agree from what I heard later that HE got himself into difficulty and could have had major problems. Fortunately the main group listened to my advice to sit in Loch Buie

I enjoyed watching your video Gary and its good to see you talking in it too..however I did want to make sure everyone who reads this thread is clear that I had nothing to do with you getting into difficult waters

I hadn’t intended the video to start blaming anyone. Let alone Donny!

We decided to cross early. It got difficult I had some problems.

The video hopefully showed some of that. It’s not all roses and the trip taught me a lot. As all the trips have.

If you want to have a go at someone then do it directly. Please don’t use my video as an excuse. I was there and know what happened and will not be explaining every detail in here. I have no issues with anyone on the trip and that is what actually matters.

I’m thankful to Donny and the rest of the group for letting me tag along.

to be fair you need to experience some trying conditions if your going to do long trips and camp out sometimes the forecast isn't always true. the puncture was one of those things that changes circumstances especially in an air floor but you got back safe thats the main thing every day a school day.

No one knows it all Ali if you did it would be boring.
