Re: The Frog

to work it needs to be a destination for all in the area, not just cater for marina users.
some basics would be good:
clean
good local ingredients (seafood landed at the marina)
reasonable prices

I wonder how many illegal immigrants the UK border agency cutter has found when patrolling the sound of Mull? (as they were this weekend)

Re: Racing improves the breed - or is it the other way round

"Sailing will be under IRPCS - not the RRS" I applaud the spirit and the idea that entrants don't get too aggressive and "racy" but I think you'll find the IRPCS inadequate when a group of boats get together and try to go the same way at the same time, particuarly at a timed star...

If towing, then early season on the clyde and then tow the boat up to Arisiaig...
