Re: Forth and Clyde this year?

There has been a long discussion on TOP, some of which may be accurate. I was left with the impression that a lot of dosh has been put up but it may not be enough and the time needed will be well into this summer, at least.

Re: Antares charts

Yes installation is a bit lengthy and you do need the licence number that Bob provides but I don't remember an extra fee apart from buying the UKHO package. When Antares is installed, you should be able to see at least a file called AC selector ... in the Map List if Memory Map is looking at somewhe...

Re: Claymore has grown a pair ... and a bit

Virtual pint if you guess the stretch of water;-) It looks like the Flying Dutchman which is renowned in my circles for not straying beyond the Sound of Mull, anywhere between Oban and Tobermory. Occasionally to be found perched on the Scrat. The background looks to me a lot more like Holland than ...

Boaty contractors in the Oban area

Re: Greece

I could mention that following our pleasant experience in the Ionian in the early 1980's, we went on to enjoy a Lycian coast cruise in Turkey. That was a bit too hot for me but otherwise enjoyable. We tried repeating that in 2015 but it was hugely overcrowded with ebullient Russians. I think that ha...

Re: Greece

Sorry Nick, I would have told you if I'd known of this gap in your knowledge base. We first went on a flotilla in the Ionian with the in-laws in about 1980. I was the most experienced sailor - 2 weeks on the Norfolk Broads and a Day Skipper theory course behind me. We had a fantastic time and learne...

Is TOP broken?

I can't get into the forums. The main ybw site seems to work OK but following a link to the forums goes to forums.ybw.com/forums/ instead of www.ybw.com/forums and says "The resource was not found".

For completeness, I tried Chrome and Edge on Windows 10. Is it just me?

Store No Way coastguard dalek

Probably last sail of the season today - spoiled by the MSI announcement from Stornoway. Even Stephen Hawking had a less unpleasant timbre. Since the message is just to listen on channel x for the Stornoway weather forecast, couldn't they record a real voice rather than use a poor computer synthesis...
