Cool, thanks.

Life has been manic recently, so not had the luxury of perusal time on here!

That date will make my time off a little easier - avoids an immovable clash of dates.

Easdale RIB Rendezvous 2017

You guys certainly are a keen lot.
I have generally let the Christmas festivities pass by and posted the ERR notice on Boxing Day. I will do likewise this year as basically I have not as yet written the relevant text. Jess and I took a vacation this December. Carolyn has gone back to Spain to hibernate in the sun

In summary however
Dates - the weekend of 29/30 April as may 1 is the bank holiday
Destination - Saturday is Oronsay via Colonsay. Sunday - Loch Buie, Carsaig and the south coast of Mull.

Be aware it's big spring tides HW Friday 2100 range 3.7m

General arrangements much as before, see Easdale RIB Rendezvous - Home

Have a great festive break, no boating from Easdale for a few days, the seas are a bit lumpy.

Tony

We're coming up again and staying on for few days after.
Booked our accommodation months ago in the Garragh Mhor b&b
Stayed there last year, it was worth it for the homemade shortbread alone.

I did it as a day trip many moons ago. It's doable but have some loud music in the car for the A82 southbound!

I bought a three man tent for this year.... The normal tent size rules of buy one for an extra man bigger need modified when you add an air bed to the mix!
