Windseeker

Yup, think you're right, Easter last year. We were on our way from Largs to Dallens Bay, and Windseeker going north also. They left Rathlin a day or so before us and probably got a better weather window. We had to anchor up in the Eilean Dubh inlet at Carsaig Bay to avoid a 7/8, two anchors in the k...

Cannae wait - been a long time ashore!

Dave Simpson's kindly offered a berth. We're meeting up at closing time in Craobh on Thursday - that should be a laugh as we've not knowingly met before. Sorry about your trials and tribs - aaaargh............ Notice you have Windseeker as a neighbour. We were tied up beside her at Rathlin a couple ...

Commiserations

Know the feeling - I gave up climbing because of knee and ankle injuries. Still have occasional probs, but find that LASONIL ointment helps in the event of severe pain and limitation of movement. If it's a soft tissue injury or a sprain, I've found that it works brilliantly. Its name sounds as thoug...

Chentlemen's Cruise - end April

Just came back to e-world as the last YBW thread disappeared over the horizon. Anyone have a spare berth? I'm told that I may be allowed some leave from my cage for few days (good behaviour etc). Advantages: can provide ballast, can cook modestly (mince 'n' tatties, mince 'n' couscous, mince 'n' poa...

Ah, now I understand

Thanks for the reminder Dave - I gave up on the anchoring thread early on as it was just becoming bad-tempered and bizarre. Oddly enough I was burnt off on a related issue in an earlier thread. Anyway, the story goes that Sydney Goodsir Smith and Hugh MacDiarmid had taken a few afternoon drams and w...

Namibia.

Oh, and I pressed the wrong button I think.

This cannot be!

Have I missed something? Or has someone rattled Dave's cage?

Planespotting

Hmmmm..... It would be too painful while Shard is laid up with her bottom scraped sob, sob. I suppose we could meet up at Edinburgh airport, have a moan and get pissed. Could Mrs Silkie drop me and my car off in Stirling? Let's know if you need a hand though. Monday? Madame Sgeir comes back Monday P...

SPAM BEGGING MAIL

Boat still on hard and "drying out" prior to re-epoxification, Madame Shard going south to see Minnie Shard, not back until Monday. Anyone short-handed, or who would be willing to suffer all-drinking, all-swearing crew for a day or two? I'm dropping Madame Shard off at Edinburgh airport at around 07...

Cuan Sound

Only been through once as I recall. As you say, go through when it's unlikely to be turbulent. We went through E - W in reasonable conditions although a SW wind made the exit a wee bit choppy. No probs at all. Just aimed for the rock and turned just before we hit it! It's really OK. Savour it.

Re: Oh yes , forgot about that . . .

There is a rich tradition of epic voyages made by impoverished sailors in what by today's standards would be considered woefully inadequately equipped vessels. That's me to a T, although the voyages generally only attain epic status in the bar afterwards. :wink: Check. And the way things are going ...

Re: Newbie

suitable for weekending around the scottish east coast / firth of forth.... The yacht's a Gib Sea 26' x 8'10", 4 berth fin keel racing model?. Trouble is the ports are all a bit shallow or drying - bilge keelers seem more popular on the Forth. West really is best. Anyone know of any good areas for ...
