Re: South and west of Islay?

I was heading to the Clyde one year, single handed and decided to round Islay to the west side. Wind was about F5, from SW, and I'd come from Scalasaig, Colonsay.

Re: The needs are drawing in

Nick,

Re: The needs are drawing in

I have instruments (GPS and AIS) feeding into a box with a Bluetooth transmitter (home made). This squirts it out to any Bluetooth receiver device (which could include iPad if I had one). It's certainly available to an android pad, and a phone. There's likely some commercially available equivalent.

The Rival is one of the early fibreglass boats from the 1970s, designed by Peter Brett. They are known for se...
