General Plans Weather Dependant...

Elie - along coast to Anstruther - out to Isle of May - might land...then back to Anstruther - along coast back to Elie for BBQ at Club House.

We need to take into account boat sizes and weather, at any point boats can step out and take refuge in St Monace, Pittenween Anstruther or Cellardyke, and pick up the cruise back to Elie or Head directly back to Elie if preferred...We have a ground support team to get people back to Elie if things blow up and we need to leave boats down coast.

Preferred Bolt Hole is Anstruther Harbour since we have a good slip to recover from if needed.

A no time will any boat be left by there self, even if it means I stay behind.

The outer forth can be a tad rough at times, so the plans are fluid. We have boats arriving from North Berwick so crusing to North Berwick is not very nice option!

We have two advanced powerboat certified & one powerboat instructor helping to plan the trip and give advice.

If anybody coming by Sea needs refuelled this can be arranged two.

As always people thoughts are welcomed before and on the day.

S.

Bell Rock - is quite far out, for us small boats, without safe haven.

As discussed previously threads,

( http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...ight=bell+rock )

its not really a plan able event, but more like if you can find a good weather window.

Most of the boats will be <5.5 metres, with 50 Hp, and a few big sport boats.

To to Bell Rock I would recommend leaving Broughty Ferry, Tayport or St Andrews.

Kev,

http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=47826

Look at the weather forecast, we think the waves and wind direction will limit the may isle. (it can take few days for swell to calm down on outer forth),

Ian from SeaSkills can verify that!

We have a passage Plan for May Isle, that if weather is right and if majority want we will implement, but as it stands Dysart is the preferred Option.

regards

S.

Not long now, a passage plan has been issued, due weather forecasts we are heading up river to the old fishing port of Dysart, which has a nice cafe and good harbour for berthing.


We will hugging the Coastline, where you can view the Cliffs and wildlife, along to coast to lower largo, then to Leven, Methil , passing Macduff Castle at Wemyss and then heading into Dysart, situated below the Cliffs of Ravencraig Castle.


We planning to take it easy so you can enjoy the coastline as we travel to Dysart.

Group Photo:

We had 6 Boats and 23 people on water, plus 3 shore based people covering the logistics.

We had a special appearance from RNLI Kinghorn - Atlantic 85 class lifeboat ĎTommy Niven, who was returning from Elie Ness to Kinghorn after being on exercise, who followed us along the coast to Dysart before returning back their station in Kinghorn a few miles further down the coast

The day was followed by a BBQ at the club, were we talked and about boating and the day.

And how we could promote more powerboating in the Forth Area/Scotland
