Re: Faroe charts

Thanks Geoff. I already have the paper charts and red scare book but like most people nowadays use the chart plotter as primary source of navigation. I have got Navtronics charts on a tablet but would normally only use this as a backup to the boats plotter

Re: woodfarm rock- kyles of Bute

The red and green perches that the CCC have placed in the past are excellent - but a couple I can think of could do with being refreshed/replaced/green paint re-done. Ones being in the narrow North side entrance to Tobermory behind Calve Island, for example. they will need to do a bit more than pai...

Re: Yachts on moorings - etiquette

back in the late 70s I was training in my kayak on the river in leamington spa when I came across a body floating in the water. I got a passer by to call the police who turned up with a grappling hook and a length of rope as the body was well away from the bank they asked me to paddle over and get t...

Re: faroes charts

If I go on my own I will aim to be up there around the summer solstice in June but if her who must be obeyed decides to be brave and come with me it will be in the school holidays around the end of July. I think this is the sort of trip you plan but unless you are lucky or have plenty of time to spe...

Re: Heads up - another storm coming this weekend

just got back from working on the boat at Maryport. The wind was gusting over 50 mph which I realize by Scottish standard is classified as a good drying breeze, but my point is that the boat is on the hard with the hull well sheltered from the wind. The mast is still up with sails removed and when I...

Re: Paying for moorings, Gigha and Canna

I visited Canna a few days ago and after anticipating a hassle anchoring in the kelp was delighted to find 10 visitor moorings. they were all occupied by mid afternoon but when I called into the pier shop late evening only five had been paid for and as few people were going ashore and most left earl...
