Round Mull Race 2019

Postby Shuggy » Wed May 22, 2019 7:43 pm

Now that SIPR is in the past, who’s up for the Round Mull Race? Sarah has entered but sadly won’t have Tidechaser to play with this year.

28th-30th June.

Anyone who’s never done it before tempted to give it a shot?

It's a wonderful weekend - I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, or very fortunately depending how you look at it, and in spite of my youthful demeanor, I have a daughter celebrating her 40th birthday that weekend. A 3-line whip has been issued and, despite the precedents from the Tory party in the face of similar strictures, I shall be giving the Round Mull a miss.
Enjoy!

Ah Claysie

Might we see the infamous grey spinnaker making an appearance on the Round Mull booze cruise/race?

It’s not really about the sailing and you have an engine!

Your decisiveness is admirable. Have you considered a career in Brexit-fixing?

It comes with being last in the food chain.
Decisions are normally made by my good self in a timely manner.
This year I am dependent upon the decision of a surgeon who has no concept of sailing seasons.
Once past him, I have to negotiate with Dear Heart
Then there is the Daughter
Followed swiftly by the Grandchildren.

I think I will end up just doing as I am told - which will be quite a novel experience

Now - Brexit - that is very simple to fix. We revoke article 50. If only the big decisions were so simple.....
