Great day yesterday but I've got to admit my body is a little sore today.

The boat ran perfectly apart from a little "pucker up" moment at the top of Ghia when the engine just cut out whilst doing 25knts, I had unknowingly knocked the ignition key with my knee and turned it off! Lesson learned.

Many thanks to Jambo for the accommodation and hospitality, also to Tony Hill and Seafari staff for making this years event a success.

Thanks Tony (and Crew) for yet another couple of days of great ribbing.
The weather ended up being fine - just a few sleety / rainy showers but otherwise sunshine and sunburn and not too much wind (at least in the daytime).
There were about 35 ribs we think for Saturday - some doing the full monty tour from Easdale - Eilean Mor (MacCormaig Isles) - Gigha - McArthur's Head - Craighouse and back to Easdale. About 92 nm for the day.
Here's a few photos from Saturday....

Today (Sunday) we had a shorter day - with about 10 ribs in total getting out for the day.
Due to the wind we changed from the original plan, and did Easdale - Loch Spelve and Loch Usig (on Mull) - Craignure Bay - Loch Adine (for Lunch), then down to the lighthouse at the Southern end of Lismore, and back to Easdale.
About 46 nm in total, with it just starting to rain for the last leg back.

A few of us are hoping to get out again tomorrow for maybe a run down to Crinan or maybe just Craobh Haven - but we'll see what the wind's doing.

Trevor, I hope you managed to find somewhere today. Based on the forecast we pulled the boat out yesterday afternoon, and decided to visit Kerrera by road today instead. Early afternoon I though I had missed a trick as the wind seemed to drop and the white horses died away... ...but 15 minutes later a squall came through that I certainly wouldn't have fancied in our wee boat and that was in the shelter of Kerrera sound!

We managed to get out - planned to go to Crinan, but the last stretch after the end of Luing was a bit wild, so we diverted to Craobh Haven instead for lunch at the Lord of the Isles.
The weather alternated between fine sunshine and squally sleety showers, and the F5 - F6 SW wind made the run each way across Easdale Bay pretty exciting.
By the time we got back to Easdale at about 2pm it was high tide, so we pulled out Baby Blue and started on our way home.
Got back today having shredded a tyre mid way down the M40. Fortunately we pulled over OK - but not before the disintegrating tyre had demolished the mud guard!
When I put the spare wheel on, I noticed that the hub was decidedly wobbly - so the bearings must have been damaged as well. Fortunately we had a spare hub and bearings in the spares kit!

I dont know if there is some mileage in this but is there any thoughts to move ERR to later in year?

it is very early in season and chance of weather window in April very early May is not great.

I have only been to last years but bailed due to forecast early, i didnt even attempt it this year again due to the forecast and fact it was snowing on the thursday. When i arrived last year there was half inch of ice on the deck!...i am the jinx! Took 2 weeks off work to go and stay there for a while but weather has been terrible lately.

Glad you and Pam made it safely back Trevor it was a long haul for you.looking forward to meeting up in June for Denmark trip. Regarding weather in Easdale.It is so changeable that you cannot realistically do any firm planning.Tony does a fantastic job to sort out a cruise whatever the weather.Its just a case of bringing shorts and t- shirts for the good bits and storm proofs for the wet bits

The ERR event is run with the intention of raising the profile of Easdale Island and it's facilities and extending the season a little for local businesses. I've attended five and missed one. Weather has been varied, sometimes stormy, sometimes flat calm, sometimes cold, sometimes hot, sometimes sunny, sometimes rainy - and that was only the first day of the first year! My WX experiences in Scotland in June, July, August and September have been much the same.

IMO, the problem is having to commit to any fixed time window when RIBbing better suits grabbing a suitable weather window.

Ofcourse committing to any fixed time isnt ideal in the uk......Anyways, food for thought perhaps.

Another great RR thanks to Tony, thought it worth mentioning Pete who helped put boats in all day Friday with his landy. We stayed till Saturday and caught the best of the weather cracking day out Friday. Will post some pics this week.

Cheers
