In the meantime I'm off to start a comprehensive programme of live sacrifices to the weather gods!

Now, if you're realy clever you can sacrifice around 10 billion midges to appease the weather gods!
If you're up for a week we'll probably miss you, (we're up there later in August) but you could do a lot worse than to buy a copy of the CCC sailing directions.
Ah Paul stop it!! Its two months before I am up and you are wetting my appetite something rotten. Yes you can't beat Jura on decent weather and the two you show are certainly worth a visit especially after going thru the 'Corry'. Hope to bump into you at Easdale gathering.

Erraid at the Ross of Mull just before the Sound of Iona. I go there a lot when sailing, usually anchor in Tinkers Hole which is the next bay round and you can walk over to this place. Its fine to anchor in Davie Balfours in quiet conditons, in the rib I reckon you could probably just take a line ashore.
I think we have all made the point that if you have the weather there is nothing and I mean nothing to compare with the 'west' for boating, its sheer heaven!!
Absol..bloody..utely .. now just stop fecking telling everyone about it
Good photos and leads there guys .. I've disposable barbecue itch already, and a thirst for peace and quiet and solitude in a massive space you just cant describe what that feels like.. you have to be in it, with some decent weather to feel the massive restorative force that comes from it
Just back from a great week, and starting to sort through photos.
Met up with Ally S and Puffin (thanks for the guiding!) as well as Polwart, willk and donegaldan on the jaunt to Radbay. Tried to catch up with Jambo and dougcrock but we didn't end up in the same place at the same time!
