Due to the forecasted high winds this trip is now cancelled.
Thanks
 
ArnsideBorewave:
As per the trip the day before, incase you couldn't make it on the Friday or the RSVP limit was reached before you booked. You need to be good at surfing, bracing, supporting and not capsizing, or have a good roll. 
Please excuse the stolen text (ammended for tide times):
we paddle out into the bay for approximately 1.5 hours, if I get my timing right we have a rest and a drink, then hopefully a decent borewave will arrive. 
It’s not guaranteed as channels change and radically affect the size And even existence of the wave. 
meet at far end of Arnside prom. Outside Ashmeadow. at 10.45 ready to paddle at 11:00
Weather Dependent: This trip may be cancelled if there is high wind, OR if the Friday 21st trip has to be postponed/delayed and would clash with this trip (thereby exceeding max permitted group size). In the unlikely case of such complications I'll communicate with those who've RSVP'd at the earliest opportunity.
For info I'll be keen to check out the wave behind the bridge once we arrive back in town incase there's some fun to be had there too.

The wind forecast is for force 4 gusting 6 from the west maybe deceasing slightly later.  Wave height 0.7m from west.
Since the trip involves exposed water and paddling  S, SW then W it will be a less enjoyable experience, than with less wind. 
I will reorganise for a  spring tide in  September.
Sunday 16th. Current wind forecast will cause this trip to be postponed.  Trip will be confirmed on Thursday  evening  21st August.

A 6 day round trip of Jura based on taking the ferry to Port Askaig on Islay Exact details to be agreed by those that RSVP
Plan B trip based on more sheltered waters around Arduanie/Seil/Oban 
Tentative weather dependent Plan A Please CHECK MY TIDAL CALCULATIONS--- like the government- collective responsibility if wrong !
Wed 26
Boats packed and checked in BY 12 .50 kennacraig Sail 1300 Arrives Port Askaig 14.55 (kennacraig 4hrs 13 min from Ullswater)
Sound of Islay flows North at 16.42.  To be  on water as soon as we can make headway. Launch point is metres from where ferry docks.  Camp as far North East as we can get ! ie Glenbatrick ? or Ruantallan bothy area (bothies are still closed) 
Thursday 27
camp to Glengarrisdale bothy area.
Friday 28
Neap tides. The Hagg flows east from 13.57 (please check)  Morning paddle to Bagh Gleann Muc  arrive here no earlier than 12.57 and await our moment.
Once through the Corrveckan head south and camp either at Port an Tiobart or further south.
Saturday 29
Head South campsite at Jura Hotel Caignish closed until March 2021
Could get boat Sunday 1530 or Monday either 0700 or 1700
Obviously this is all weather dependent. 
Corrryveckan westerly flow (flood) on wed 26 is 16.57 so would mean a crossing of sound of Jura. Westerly on Thursday 05.41 and 18.17 and on Friday 28 (neaps) is 07.14 and 2012 --not helpful.
All calculations based on Oban meteo Consult Marine Tides and tidal streams from Clyde Cruising club Kintyre to Ardnamurchan.
If anybody knows of any likely wild camping spots please let me know.  Ferry is £6.90 one way. I will keep an eye on availability  Have confirmed they are still taking sea kayakers.
