I’ve just returned from a couple of days of sailing with my fellow ukulele player and neighbour Tom and his family.
I travelled through to Largs on Thursday morning to get the boat ready and Tom and family arrived just before eight. After they we had put their stuff on board we went to Scott's in the marina. We set off on Friday morning in glorious sunshine and made our way towards the East Kyle.
We managed a short sail in a fairly decent wind but as we approached the Kyles and toward Burnt Islands the wind became very light, but it was a beautiful motor through the narrows and after Buttock Point we managed another bit of sailing to Ardlamont Point.
We arrived in Portavadie and Tom and the family set off for the Leisure Centre and pool. We ate in the Lodge which is less formal than the restaurant in the main building (and I think better for it)
We left for our return to Largs around 9.00 on Saturday morning and motored back to Largs.
