Karl,

I am confused - is this on 18th July or 1st August?

If 1st Aug we will try very hard to make it as Tiree is just about the only Hebridean island we have not yet visited.

Hi,

A 'Friendly Regatta' is held on the 18th, this is more of a local free for all !!! and this is the first year one has been run, it involves just the local 'Luggers' (some 100+ yrs old) and no on shore fun...apart from the pub.

1st of August is the main event...follow this link: tireeregatta.org.uk a great day out, with a wild evening...for all the family.

If the weather is fair Gott Bay is a good anchorage, if you are thinking of staying a couple of days...drop a second hook. I moor in Gott Bay throughout the summer in 3m sand, my CO32 has happily sat in a F8 from S/SW. She draws 1.65m...(my house is the nearest to the Pier). Should the weather turn nasty, Gunna sound or even Balaphetrish Bay a solid alternative moorings. Unfortunately I won't be there this year...I get home from work 'Yemen' on the 4th.

Q: how on earth do I edit photographs into these posts ?

All the best

Hope the Regatta went well. If yesterday's weather in Loch Maddy was anything to go by it should have been, errrmm,,,,,,,, interesting.

Not sure what Webbie's rules are, but first edit the pics into JPEG (.jpg) format; about 700 pixels wide looks to be about OK. You then need to put it online somewhere, eg like the free Photobucket or Flickr services.

Once that's done, your pic will have its own URL (eg http://www.photobucket.com/......../piccy.jpg).

You can then compose your post and press the "Img" button in the line under your header. You''l the see two little "boxes with "img" and "/img" placed into your text. Just paste in the pic's URL into the space between the img thingies..

THat's the straightforward stuff, but Silkie and others might explain how they manage some of their fancier tricks.
