More proof that Sandy will spare no expense to make sure the Osborne family have all the comforts of home, even on the short row from shore to ship. By installing a loo on Kumari's tender, Sandy has eliminated one more of the many inconveniences of cruising with the fitting of a deluxe TendaPotti (Pats Pend), shown here being installed on the Wee Pier [sic]. Always ahead of the game, however. can it be long before the rest of the fleet follow suit? It will be some time before any can boast more than one loo, let alone the choice of three currently afforded to the lucky Kumaris, although on past form a spare loo or two might be prudent. Where will it all end up? (in the sea probably...)

Loch Broom Scalping Contractors

I sometimes wonder if we are a sailing club whose members like laying gravel, building sheds, levelling ground, laying foundations, or a bunch of civil engineers, who occasionally enjoy going sailing.

Well today it was quite clear. I'll let the photos do the explaining, but those  not familiar with the ways of the Old Loch Broom may find some of them perplexing.

However, the job (as John O would say) is a good 'n. The boat park is now scalped(?) graded and level(ish) ready for the next storm to wash it all away.

Obergruppenfuhrer Buchanan will now attempt to keep the wayward tenders, Fevas, trailers and dinghies in some semblance of order (good luck Donald).
