They all seem to agree at the moment - SW F5 for Thursday then going NW and easing over the weekend as high pressure builds from the Atlantic.

Simon's forecast for the weekend seems to be:

Saturday NE 5 or 6

Sunday N 3 or 4

Monday NW 3 or 4

Whisper it not, but could this be the year... ?

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Widdershins round Mull?

Aye, that sort of thing. A steadily backing wind would seem to suit. I'm not sure how sheltered Bunessan would be in a NE 6, though.

Yes, you're right - not much shelter in Bunessan in a strongish northeasterly. Tobermory is a bit rubbish as well in NE. Tinker's Hole?

While the gribs (Magic Seaweed etc) are definitely giving 5-6 for Saturday off the West Coast of Mull I am not totally convinced - here's the BBC synoptic for Saturday:

Anyway, must away and prepare for embarkation (or possibly embrocation)

The area off the old Bendoran boatyard wouldn't be much good, but, with the greatest of respect etc, anchoring off the jetty towards Bunessan village is ideal in NE winds.

Right, I'm convinced.

See you this evening hopefully. Shutting down now.
