So there are some expressions of interest. There is also the Danish guy from TOP who will be in the area around that time. I am annoyed with myself for considering the implications of publishing dates when our house will be empty on a public forum but it has happened now and may remain a niggle. Nick, would it be technically feasible/could you be ars*d to make a small section of this web space password protected (over and above standard login) where exact dates could be discussed ? If it is not, I could put a simple page up somewhere.
The chances of a successful landfall in company probably remain slim. First to find a date that is suitable and then, on arrival in Castlebay, it will probably only be a 50/50 chance that the weather would be suitable for a couple of nights at anchor at St Kilda. I will have a look at the tides for the second half of May, first half of June and look for 3 or 4 day periods of neaps as I assume it would be better not to venture out to west of the outer Hebrides on big springs unless settled. Then we would have half a dozen potential dates for the adventure and take it from there.
