A great end to the story of you and Harmony. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series of shorter videos you have posted over the last few days, more so than the longer ones you have been posting.
Many thanks for you efforts and I look forward to seeing more videos in the future.
Thoroughly enjoyable. In particular, your description of that rough passage back to the mainland including what was going through your mind. We’ve all been there, to a greater or lesser extent and your openness about the experience is very consoling for those of us who feel that we can’t quite hack it anymore. I’ve been in similar situations but as a crew member with an experienced and hardened skipper. Doing stuff like that (or just the thought of it) with just me and my wife on a boat that was also our home raised my anxiety levels to a point where I stopped enjoying the whole thing. Good on yer, perhaps your nick-name should be “Gunga” Dylan.
How wonderful to see you and Harmony in my back yard. Do come back soon and Ill pop down for a pie and a pint.
I also have enjoyed this run of video-blogettes, it’s made a nice change from the longer vids. Great closing quote as well! Tapped.
Dylan, My mother-in-law passed away this morning – she was a great old bird. The good bit is I got time to watch the videos which are a delight. I’m now back sailing these waters and had a great winter sail in December last year when we visited Port Banatyne. We had to pull ourselves up the gang way to the toilets as the gratings were covered in ice! Mad coming back from the pub after a few beers. Had a great night sail through the Kyles of Bute – cold but absolutely stunning sail. Sailing from Oban to St Kilda starting 11 May. Looking forward tom this sail of lifetime.
you need to get sailing as soon as you can – watching that wake dissipating behind you while the bow cuts through water is the therapy you need.
What more can I add, Cracking set of films Dylan. Hopefully it will get the tappers going.
Excellent as always Dylan. And if watching this isn’t worth a tenner of anybody’s money then I don’t know what is…
Good stuff, as always good stuff.
What happened to Gordon?Without whom…
Meanwhile,Continue Turning Left….
Really enjoyed your west coast videos – will return to them soon as I plan to retrace your steps myself in late April in my own Centaur. (Craobh to Gairloch).
I shall miss your trenchant comments until you start posting videos again from the comfort of your Fisher!
Its been a while since I checked in.I enjoyed the films of the trip to the Cyde. Familiar territory for me, which makes it even more interesting.Also I know some very interesting little places you missed. Enjoyed it just the same.I spent a little bit of time sailing near Crinan in October Beautiful cold and wet. It was the last time for a while the old family boat now sold.There’s a big world out there to sail but its a special part.I tapped my pittance. For the enjoyment of what has been done. Still hopefully one day you will make it back to the area.Or continue to a new one.With a bit of luck I might get to sail there again some day not to far away.
I whizzed past so many wonderful places – all we saw was a single narrow strip of the Clyde. I plan to return.
Hope you got my post. I have been rewatching season 8 with your wonderful family. The tenor of those videos warms my fatherly/grandfatherly heart every time. What amazing offspring!
Big gathering of Macgregors planned for the East coast this summer….might be fun!
