Am thinking that Pullers on Friday might be as good as it gets. We wont be out at the crack of Sparrowfart on friday.
Does anyone have a number or email for Matt?



I've PM-ed you Matt's email and UK mobile number

Good thinking - Pullers might be the only option potentially achievable by the entire fleet on Friday.

Right, so no need for me to pick up sleeping bags.

The forecast for Thu PM, Friday and Saturday AM is looking wet.

Claymore, by arriving late, do you mean after pub, i.e. no meeting now on Thu night?

Would P'dn on Friday night be a provisional plan if comms fail?

Not sure what time Matt is arriving but Self, Para and Muzzy are hoping to be there by 23:00 tomorrow (Thursday) evening
We are bringing sleeping bags for Mattand the Lemon

.
Rain ceased here, wind F2

The inshore forecast has substantially improved:

24 hour forecast:

Wind: Cyclonic, becoming northwest, then backing southwest later, 5 to 7.
Sea State: Moderate or rough.
Weather: Rain then fair.
Visibility: Good, occasionally poor at first.

Outlook for the following 24 hours:
Wind: Southwest 5 to 7.
Sea State: Moderate or rough, becoming very rough in northwest.
Weather: Fair, then occasional rain.
Visibility: Good, occasionally moderate.

Sounds like a good forecast for blowing the Cruise Director and his entourage up to PD

DaveS, are you out there?

I'm tied to the pontoon in Craobh, mopping up the rain water leaks. Current plan is to leave for P'n around 1700 - I do wish I had a wheelhouse...
