    Default Where you sailing on Loch Lomond yesterday ?

    We saw four boats rafted up in pairs sailing down the length on Lomond yesterday with bothy bag sails in gale force winds, was it you ?

    If it was you got some big kahunas as it was pretty grim out there.

    We were sheltering behind rocks on the north tip of Inchconnachan whilst we watched you come down.

    Hats off to you guys whoever it was,
    Rich

    Sound like a D of E or centre group.

    May the gentleness of morning, greet your silent passage through endless waters...

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.

    I'd be surprised if it was, it didn't look the kind of weather to be taking kids out.

    I think they were adults but I only saw close up pics on the little screen of a camera.

    Don't have to be a kid to be doing a D of E. Taken from the D of E website:

    "What can I do if I cannot finish all the sections to achieve a full Award?
    If for whatever reason you cannot complete all the sections of your DofE programme you can still be recognised for the section(s) you have completed. Your DofE Leader may arrange to use sectional certificates. Remember, you can still finish your whole programme if you complete all your activities in each section before your 25th birthday (even if you started them when you were 14!)"

    Darn!! I'm just a few years too late then (And to think I've got all the other sections completed for my bronze award except the expedition ).
