Round Mull

Postby mm5aho » Mon Jun 20, 2016 4:51 pm

Anyone going?

Contender is still in Oban somewhere, so I'm getting the train over Thursday night. Afterward coming back to Rhu, possibly thought the Canal (if I can face up to such a slow transit again!)

I have entered, heading up from the Clyde sometime between now and then, probably via the MoK. After, if I am allowed, it will be a slow cruise, possibly via S'way then back to Oban for WHYW.

See you at the nosh-up on Thursday, Geoff.

Yep. New spinnaker arrives this week so I hope we get a chance to use the thing. You won't be able to miss it - it's this colour.

This Could Get Confusing

Light wind spinnaker, and "storm spinnaker".

Storm spinnaker must be an oxymoron :shock:

My crew doesn't let me get the "big sail" out if there is enough wind to keep it full.

It's a fact that Claysie hasn't a clue as to the colour of his sails

Any idea how you would describe your spinnaker?

Yes Ataraxia will be there, hoping storm spinnakers wont be needed. Cant make the thursday buffet because of inconsiderate tides in sound of luing. What's the betting on a driftathon on the sunday?

I missed last year, but well remember the driftathon the year before. This time if Marisca suggests a restart, we should go for it!

Last year may have been a bit of a driftathon on the Sunday but it was absolutely anything but on the Saturday!
