Oban Trust Port progress

OCHDA (Oban Community Harbour Development Association to be formal) have published a newsletter.

They aim to establish the trust during 2021 which I reckon would be quite an achievement if they manage it.

Moderate in shelter, otherwise rough or very rough. Showers at first, then rain at tim...

Re: Espana

Congrats. You'll be disappointed to hear that it's pishing down and blowing in Argyll. But there's not a lot of covid.

Re: News on Covid and Access Issues

Just back from Tobermory. It's quite busy but not yet at normal levels. The Mishnish and McGochans are both open for food and drink. They were operating different systems; McGochans is table service but the Mish is bar. Staff at the Mish were wearing visors but no masks at McGochans. Will a standard...

Paul Merton, Paul Murton - it's very confusing. There's the one who used to be funny and the one who wears a funny hat. I don't know footballers.

Coll Moorings

The Coll Public Moorings are currently on the seabed and there is no date for restoring them. Meanwhile, they are a hazard to anchoring so use a tripping line or go elsewhere.

Re: News on Covid and Access Issues

Tobermory Harbourinformation.
Briefly (subject to change!):
Book in before arrival.
Limited pontoon space and few moorings.
Pay online. No showers or toilets till 15/7.
Some shops are open but the Mishnish is closed for now but McGochans beer garden seems to have risen from the ashes.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Tobermory will be slightly open from tomorrow https://www.tobermoryharbour.co.uk/as-you-arrive but with restrictions. I wonder what the welcome will be like in the Mishnish? Perhaps McGochans will be more appropriate. I had an email from Dunstaffnage to the effect that they will allow owners from > ...

Glad we got launched last week and have enjoyed some sunny day sails. Yesterday was HOT and starting to look a bit busy with yachts.

Re: oar / oars required

I think there's 1 or 2 aluminium/plastic standard inflatable oars in the loft. Do you want me to check?

Re: How to get launched?

Confession time. We live 6 miles from our winter boatyard so on Sunday, we went antifouling. First visit since late March. I don't remember leaving such a mess but that's often the way theses days. The yard was only offering launch to nearby residents. I didn't ask what the criterion is exactly but ...

The obvious way to check if your eyesight is good enough to drive safely is to drive 60 miles on public roads. I'm relieved he chose English roads for the investigation.
