It wiz mair o' a kiss than a grounding although we were sat there for a minute or two. No harm done - Ken McColl of Kilmelford said to me after my Cuan experience "There are only 2 kind of yachtsmen around here- those who have hit rocks and those who haven't yet'
Regarding the definitive gate stuff - we were just wandering along and taking a peek at the new pontoons in Oban bay and then were headed off to Tobers - I'll wager there'll be a few more getting acquainted with the Corran ledges as they are kind of 'in the way' for yachts taking a similar line.
Anyway - no harm done and it was good to see the Silken One out by Lady Is. a little while later and the Fartwinds as we approached Gigha on Tuesday.
Fabulous week - not a lot of wind but my its grand to be dry!!

So the question is "What kind of infantile shitforbrains feels it necessary to put a video of such an 'incident' on Facetwat?"

The video was shot by one Alexander McKinnon Macdonald but was posted to the FB Sailing and Cruising Scotland page by a Keith Smith. Interestingly, I see that another yacht went aground on Corran Ledge the same day. Perhaps the new pontoons are confusing more than just you.
