Re: Blow wind, come wrack

We left Greenock for Portavadie on Sunday and although bloody cold it was a pleasant motor round the Kyles.
We saw quite a few boats out and about and even a few with sails up.

Re: Sleigh ride down Sound of Jura

We had similar speeds and tide through the Sound of Luing from Kerrera the previous day and arrived in Craighouse much earlier than planned.

Re: Crinan Canal

Thanks for those,
We went through Friday and Saturday and it wasn't too busy but they stopped a bit sharp to top the water up.
The weather was glorious.

I haven't been to Troon for a while but had heard that Sandy has retired. Will maybe take a run down there.

Re: Dolly the Dolphin Videos

No aggression I don't think. As we passed the buoy at the point it appeared with a splash and played alongside and under the boat for a while then swam off. I spoke to a couple of other people that day who had seen the same thing at the point.

Re: Dolly the Dolphin Videos

Any idea what the tail slapping is all about?
There was a dolphinh ambushing boats at Ardlamont three or four of Saturdays ago.

Yanmar specialists

I need some work done (other than normal servicing) on a Yanmar engine in the Firth of Clyde area. Does anyone have any recommendations.

Thanks
