Re: A visit from Katia?

0730 Monday I notice the K2 Buoy's anemometer is not working, but it is recordning a wave height of 7.5m. Most other offshore observations are winds not above 30-35 kn. And BBC (radio Scotland) reporting that this is the remnants of "Hurricane Katrina". I've never heard of a hurricane taki...

Re: Oban to Glasgow - ideas?

What I forgot to say is that I do this route every year (round the Mull), and have always stopped at Gigha, sometimes at Sanda, sometimes Campbeltown, sometimes at one of the various Arran. No aversion to moorings, though anchor much more often. Keen to see something new this year. So Islay and Rath...

Oban to Glasgow - ideas?

Next week (17th to 25th) I'll be bringing our Rival 32 from Dunstaffnage to Rhu, mostly probably singlehanded, but might be joined for a couple days by my son for part the trip. Had thought to go somewhere a bit different en-route, especially somewhere I'd not been before or not landed on before. No...

Hope the wind drops a bit by next weekend... Hope to sail Oban to Clyde via wherever the wind is favourable.

Re: Clyde Port Radio broadcasting on Channel 16?

Not necessarily a fault.
If you were very close to the Clydeport transmitter, its possibly "break through", where one frequency breaks through into others. It can as easily be a fault in the transmitter as in your receiver.

Re: Coll moorings nonsense from Neil Smith

I was in the area and stayed one night Arinagour couple weeks back. Noticed the moorings, and remembered this thread, but only just remembered to add my bit. The moorings look in good condition from the surface, as if quite new. But in my opinion they are too far north. Considering to pick one up an...

Re: Tim leaves Dunstaffnage

Sentiments above agreed.
I noticed him eating at the Frog one day with someone deep in discussion. Perhaps that was a job interview.

Doesn't he have two relatives also working there?
