All of this is entirely dependent on the weather, tides and the mood of the crews.
This is a great opportunity to Cruise the West Coast for those who are experienced as well as those who are less confident and would like the company. All our sailing will be weather dependent and will be arranged to suit the slowest boat. The next days destination will be decided in the pub on the night before.
My itinerary is fairly gentle. If the weather is really good and the wind is in the right direction, then we might go out to Barra. If not, then we might stay inside Mull and go to Tobermory that way. It wont be a race. It will be comfortable.

Notices To Mariners
Third party organisations regularly issue Notices to Mariners (NTMs) advising of important navigational information such as changes in buoyage, prior warning of activities such as dredging, exclusion zones, harbour closures and byelaws etc.
We encourage members to use these sources of information to ensure safe, rewarding sailing on the Clyde and further afield:
