Re: Round Mull Race 2019

It’s not really about the sailing and you have an engine!

Re: Round Mull Race 2019

Ah Claysie

Might we see the infamous grey spinnaker making an appearance on the Round Mull booze cruise/race?

Round Mull Race 2019

Now that SIPR is in the past, who’s up for the Round Mull Race? Sarah has entered but sadly won’t have Tidechaser to play with this year.

28th-30th June.

Anyone who’s never done it before tempted to give it a shot?

Re: SIPR 2019

Here’s my 2p-worth... If anyone’s wondering whether SIPR is good fun, just enter and do it. It’s like the Round Mull Race but with added fun (and perhaps less booze). We are doing this again - it’s brilliant. You get to appear at all the main tidal gates and just think, ‘f*ck it, le’s go anyway and ...

Re: SIPR 2019

We finished and everyone had a good time. That was a complete hoot! I'm mildly tired right now but we've had the lot: sun, rain, wind, no wind. Day, night and something in-between. We had the spinnaker up for 17 hours solid at one point, which is a record for Sarah. We broke nothing, somewhat unexpe...

Have you seen the forecast, Claysie? Take the shades and sun screen more like... and a good book as the going is going to be a bit slow.

Re: SIPR 2019

Thanks Alastair Sorry to hear about the knee - but look forward to catching up in Oban. I think we’re fully compliant on the scrutineering front, having just hired a 6 man liferaft to replace our usual 4 man one. I’ve also bought a new offshore flare pack as our old one may perhaps have been a bit o...

SIPR 2019

Anyone doing it?

We are. Marisca?

We’ve had some ups and downs on the way but a week today we’ll be underway. Yacht is Sarah - wish us luck please. We’ll need it.

This is a racing year... SIPR, RMR and WHW.

Weather doesn’t look all that favourable for a 1970s ocean racer but you never know.

Re: I never realised

Claysie If only your surgeon had seen the exposed wires of the good shup Claymore last winter he would have understood that his own challenge in re-wiring your heartery was but a midge-bite on the arm of your yaacht’s electric issues. Good to hear that you are recovering. I am currently on a visitor...

Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

Claysie You misunderstand my post. We drank the Yardley Gold Label, having tried on your kecks. It was the only thing that would take away the pain after finding out that you only wear thongs. No Y fronts for the Laird, eh? No maidens were hurt in the making of the party, but Senga from the Galley m...

Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

Too late Claysie. I took a gaggle of maidens from the Galley and had an impromptu gathering in your marquee at the weekend. If you need any help tidying up let me know. There were some grey/green undergarments left scattered around for your enjoyment. Tickets were sold and I did alright from the pro...

Re: Claymore's Bits and Pieces

Claysie I seem to have missed this fine post on my tours of this forum. Congratulations on completing your shup's mechanicals and electricals. We never did catch up again in the season, so I missed the chance of toasting your installation with some of his laird's finest. I was at Ardfern on Saturday...

Re: Will there be a wake?

I enjoy posting here from time to time and have met some great peeps. I guess that puts me in the 40 - or 20. I understand that maintaining something like this might be a bit of a pain, so I will try to post more often. Happy New Year all. Shuggingtons!

Re: A tricky whereizit

Nope - south a bit more! I appreciate this is quite tricky as the background looks similar to other places. How many people have been into Ob Lickisto at the top end of Loch Stockinish?
