The Clyde, Kyles of Bute, Tarbert and Loch Fyne

Roly, Ros, Nicola and I are tentatively planning to meet in Largs on Saturday 25th May with a view to setting off on an exploration of the Clyde, Bute. Loch Fyne area on Sunday 26th. For Nicola and I it will be a 5 day trip but Roly and Ros might stay for 2 weeks or more. If anyone else is interested in joining this informal Mac gathering, let us know on the forum.

This will be my fourth visit to the area and when the weather is kind it is wonderful but if the forecast is for low pressure systems dominating and high winds, I probably wont set off. Jim Rotheram, ex Mac owner has his new boat moored in Tarbert, so a meet up with Jim might be on the cards.

The area is quite sheltered with lots of marinas and anchoring options - the social options are good too, with plenty of pubs and restaurants.

Let us know if you are interested joining us.

Hi,

Hi,

im not sure if we will be able to bring Ptarmigan down as we will likely still be shaking her down on Loch Earn until later in June. We might however drive down to meet the group at a marina when the schedule is known

Hi Roly and Quentin

Hi Roly and Quentin

Great that you are coming north. I was hoping to have a Clyde cruise sometime this year. I've just launched in Loch Lomond and have a bit of sorting to do. Unfortunately I have an Austin rally at home the weekend ending 27th May and will need to clear up, but if you are staying on the Clyde a while I could possibly lift out and see about launching at Rhu over the hill and catch up somewhere. I will do some research and try and arrange crew. Keep me posted with your plans. It would be great fun but I can't promise.

Hi Leigh and Anneke, glad you

Hi Leigh and Anneke, glad you are both interested in saying hello. I hope all the stars align and this trip comes off. It is definitely on at the moment and I will update as and when there are developments and firm plans - the start date is firm for me. Not so far away now. Quentin
