Re: Is TOP broken?

Moderation here is the very epitome of fair-minded even-handedness as you are all no doubt aware. Anyone who disagrees with this statement will of course be instantly banned.

Re: Greece

Pretty sure I've sung the praises of the Ionian to you a few times. Wall to wall sunshine (with the odd thunderstorm) and fairly predictable breezes, no tides, almost no rocks to hit, nearly as many harbours and anchorages (and more pubs) as the West and much cheapness - what's not to like?

Don't mention the scope. I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it alright.

Oh dear. They might not have been the cheapest but if you needed a grip-thribley in a hurry there was a reasonable chance they would have one.

OK it's a date.

Now who's up for the Oban Inn tomorrow or maybe Friday?

Re: Drinks

There are far too many individualists in sailing in general and on this forum in particular.

I'm up for the Oban Inn if it could be the evenings of 23,24,25/11 or 8,9/12 but not all of them.

:cheers

Or I could do Edinburgh at these times too. :santa:

Re: Where's this anchorage?

I've only been in once but I'm pretty sure it's not Loch a Choire - the land is much higher all around.

Re: How's your Summer going?

We seem to be in the right place for now. Orkney and Shetland have had mainly brilliant sunshine for the past 2-3 weeks. There was a very wet day in Fair Isle and a gale 2 weeks ago and some quite strong winds odd times but overall we've been having a very good time. We didn't expect it to be warm ...

Too easy huh?

If you're planning a cruise in August I am reliably informed that the last fortnight will be superb sailing weather.

It's outrageous! This sort of filthy smut should not be allowed on the BBC.

Re: Oban Marina sold

The pseudonyms didn't fool you then? Can you elucidate for the slow-witted please? Well - it was quite late when I posted and my thought processes had been improved by a couple of wee goldies :) and I had interpreted Nick's post to be joking that I had bought the marina and had immediately banned B...
