It’s been some time since Jess has sailed to Tarbert, the last time being September last year for the Music festival.
This weekend we were heading to Tarbert for The Sailing and Cruising Scotland Flotilla. The flotilla is organised through a Facebook Group and this year was the second to Tarbert and saw some 60 to 70 boats there on the Saturday.
I arrived in Largs on Thursday and Alan joined me later in the afternoon. We had decided to make for Tarbert on Friday and glad we did as we managed a great sail having to only rely on motoring for an hour or so. .
After getting the boat ready and packing our stuff away we spent the day in Largs
We set off for Tarbert at around 11am arrived just before four and waited for our other crew member, Gary to arrive on the bus from Glasgow before going to Starfish for dinner.
On Saturday morning Gary and I took a short walk up to Tarbert Castle once occupied by Robert The Bruce who enlarged and reinforced it. We spent much of second day in the The Islay Frigate playing pool. In the evening we went to the BBQ and marquee tent on the harbour wall where the really good None The Wiser Argyll were playing,
We left fairly early on Sunday morning and again this turned out to be a great idea as this was another great sail back to Largs.
