Plans have been afoot for some time to sail around the Farne Islands and at an improptu meeting of the club on Sunday 9th June whilst standing in the rain it was decided that to progress the idea, all those interested should be asked to post a response to this message confirming their willingness to join in at relatively short notice on a Saturday or Sunday when conditions are suitable.
Gavin's expert opinion is that a Westerly or Southerly would be best but an Easterly would be too lumpy. we would want a nice sunny day.
Depending on numbers the services of a support boat that we feel is essential might be hired at joint cost from a boat based at Seahouses. The designated photographer would cover the event from the support boat.
A longboard would be essential but if anyone is keen to join in and does not have a longboard it may be possible to equip them.
