Scottish Islands Peaks Race

Race entry is now open for that iconic tour round the west coast in May. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it is a wee cruise that mixes sailing and running, usually 3 sailors and 2 runners per boat, that starts in Oban and ends in Troon having sent the runners over Ben More (the Mull yin), ...

Re: Hatched in the Doric

I'm surprised the delectable Dr Liz has not volunteered Pilgrim for the trip. And then there's Ken who must be kicking himself that he no longer has the Green Behemoth.

Re: Drinking in the balmy south

Did it last year and that'll last me for more than quite a while. You do know your bus pass doesn't work down there?

Re: Corran Loch Linnie: Anchorage, Moorings and Harbours

The fish farm to the north's rotating feeder squeaks annoyingly. Eddy up the west side on the ebb.

Re: The needs are drawing in

Missing a Navik may not have been a bad thing. Another Contessa 32 had one and the water vane attachment was not up to the job.

Re: Drinks

May I be vaguely decisive and state Friday 8th December to be the date and, despite Nick's plaintive whines frae the west, Edinburgh to be the locus. That just leaves the choice of hostelry and I am all for tradition and keeping with the Doric in Market St. but, as always, am amenable to other sugge...

Re: SC5616 - a disappointment

If you really gave a **** you would download weekly and update your folio with a hideously expensive magenta pen. The fun bit is when you leave it a bit, start from the oldest change and then find later changes that delete the changes you've just made. You have to decide whether changes matter - did...

Re: SC5616 - a disappointment

NtM = Notice to Mariners. Updates to charts published weekly (monthly?) by HM Hydrographers. Tells you when they do things like adding a red buoy and a cardinal to the Ferry Rocks, etc..

Re: SC5616 - a disappointment

You're obviously a privileged soul - they've actually advised you when a new edition is to be published, something they have kept close to their chests in the past. As all NtM for previous editions are deleted when the new yin is published we would be well advised to download them now. I'm sure you ...

Re: Drinks

I think we've all been to the Troosers at some point of the year - is that no enough?
