Round Scotland 2015

With the Round Isle of Wight 2015 completed just hours ago, I've got just 3 days before Round Scotland

If you are around the Largs area, 11th - 13th July you are welcome to come out with us or meet up for a beer.

Most likely we will be going out on Sunday and Monday however Jurgen and myself are taking Black Hawk for some pampering on Monday 13th while the others are out cruising.

We will be setting off round Scotland on the 14th and will be coming back down the Caledonian Canal.

We are cruising and sight seeing so the legs will be shorter than Round Britain.

I'm not sure how much 3G/wifi will be about, but I'll try and keep you lot up to date with pics etc, if not when I come back

It's the Be on the beach day at Otter ferry on Saturday

Been to it a few times. They usually have a BBQ or hog roast at it.

It's also got a pontoon so easy to get ashore if you guys are looking for somewhere to go

I am also adding this to facebook so I'll do my best to update both...

Round Scotland 2015 - Day 1 - Todays the day!!!

We are all travelling to Largs from all over some as far as Germany and Belgium. I'll try and do a post every day but some times I guess that I won't have any phone signal. There are three boats with AIS that you can track, Black Adder, Seasalt and Watershed. I think most boats were also at either Round Ireland 2013 or Round Britain 2014. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone and especialy my team mate Jürgen (Bushrider). Together, Jurgen and myself are Team Black Hawk!

We are just south of Glasgow at the Hamilton Services

I think Sea Salt has just arrived...

I'm not sure where Team Kalish is...

I'm sure everyone else is there
