Event details


This will be a self supporting trip around Jura for a maximum of five people.  Plan A involves meeting at Kennacraig at 1400 to be ready to board Ferry to Port Askaig at1500 for 1530 sailing. Arrive Islay 1725 which gives us 6 ish hours of flood tide to go west and camp. Rerturn on 1530 ferry on Saturday 24th. Tickets are refundable at a days notice so if weather is bad we can rearrange. Wheels needed for ferry. Ferry tickets are £14.2o per person which I have bought.

 Would like to visit upper Loch Tarbert, through the Narrows and allow time for some exploration , rather than just blasting round (possibly climb the Paps ? or explore many of the beaches on the west coast )

Leader; Tom Peacock/Peer Group

Level; This is an advaced trip due to its exposed nature, predictably unpredictable weather, swell, open crossings  fast tides and the odd whirlpool !

Equipment; All to be self sufficient carrying 7 days food and at least 2 of the following ; waterproofed available phone, radio, PLB/EPIRB, selection of flares; distress lighting. I also suggest carrying some water/ filter system. More discussion on trip Whats App .

Plan B ; If weather looking dodgy will make another self supporting plan somewhere appropriate.
