Comment posted 2012 Scottish Islands Peaks Race Oban to Troon – just finished by Jack Aubrey.
NLB is funded from light dues gathered from shipping using our waters, and doesn’t cost the tax payer one penny. Sorry to burst your bubble. WAFIS on the other hand, use all the facilities without charge…you’re welcome.
The wider issue is whether the opinion of leisure sailors in Tupperware boats “adrenalined up to the eyeballs” is of any value arguing about “steam” gives way to sail in a commercial shipping lane, getting in the way of marine professionals.

A ridiculous leisure paddler – he/she should be prosecuted for sure. Oban bay is infested with these deliverence-obsessed budget mariners in their wheelie-bin plastic logs. Hopefully everyone else will take a leaf out of the marine proffessionals book and stay well clear giving the whale a chance.
