Im home now and can confirm that I met up with the Guys on the Scottish Sib outing.
We all camped together on Bute … opposite Tighnabruach on the Saturday night. From their report to me of their Saturday ... they went from Largs to Brodick before coming to Tighnabruach.
It must have been a bit of a bouncy trip as I spent Saturday going round Bute with Kaman and had the thrill of following the Last Sea going Paddle Steamer in the world.
The Waverly ..all the way from Rothesay to Tighnabruach in Force 3 to force 4 conditions. I never realised just how fast the old girl moved. I was at full throttle keeping up with her. I guess she was doing around 20 m.p.h. and what a beautiful sight she is when you are up close in a SIB. Her deep V hull had an added advantage over my wooden floor with blow up keel ..but I managed to get some great video footage following her flowing skirt as I bounced along beside her
After a few beers with the guys at night..some of the guys got up early to join myself and Kaman on a trip round the Isle of Arran. We left Tighnabruach around 8.30 am and I arrived back in Largs just after 5.30pm.
We enjoyed a sea as flat as a mill pond almost the whole way. Weather was that good.. most of the guys are extending their outing into Monday by camping tonight on Arran. It was perfect weather...and the midges were well fed
Stevie..I have video footage of my outing..which will cover some of the Scottish SIB outing this year. The guys were taking photos too ..so Im sure you will get a full report from them when they appear. I will post my videos once I get them turned into a watchable movie . Sadly ...you missed a fantastic outing.
Great to meet up with you guys again ... The outing did include a full round of Arran thanks to Highland Haggis for making it happen
Im certain the guys will give their update when the get back
