Mine is a Lensun one from eBay if that helps.

Ships passing in the day

I had the pleasure of meeting Gardenshed in Grovee Craobhee on Saturday evening - a real pleasure. And today was spent drifting around the top end of the Sound of Jura drinking coffee and then beer, interrupted by a chat with Marisca. The entrance to the Sound of Kerrera was punctuated with a small ...

Re: I know who this is!

Glad all is well. Looks a bit punchy in the pics. Drink in WHYW? Sarah’s cocktail locker is open! Would you have us believe that you offered your services to the RNLI as a practice casualty? Not quite, I was very pleased to see them but they did have a new crewman on board for his first training sai...

Re: SIPR 2019

Having lurked in the bushes reading Blue Moment posts for while now, and having just done our first SIPR it’s time to expose ourselves! As Capitaine of the vessel Hero we found ourselves doing battle with Sarah several times but our runners showed they could row as well and we managed to find some ...

Drone pron

One of my crew had fun with a drone during the Round Mull Race. Some footage here if you’re bored...

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...

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...
