For Bob Hove: Read it again. We said nothing nor do we feel anything at all derogatory about the crew or the ship – each of which we support and admire (although we except the MoD’s procurement processes from our admiration and support).

This article is about the political machinations that, unless we are very lucky, will lead us into an unnecessary and manufactured war with Iran.

    Fabulous summary. This will be our required reading for some time.
  • Dead in the water: Oban transit marina
    As far as we are aware, the sailing protocol – of which the Harbour Master must be aware – is that you may cross a yacht you have rafted up to at any time – including the sleeping hours, provided you go round by the bow and not the stern.
    This leaves the private quarters of the yacht safe from potential prying eyes.
    Any regular sailor making fairly frequent port visits is immune to being woken by a bouncing yacht in the night – so long as the movement is not accompanied by merry cries.
    The sailors on these yachts would have fully expected sailors on rafted yachts to have to pass to and fro over their decks – otherwise they could not get ashore.
    It is quite worrying that a council-managed facility had no interest in showing greater care than this for a less able person.

  4. Hi Chaps re dispatch of HMS Daring to the Iranian Gulf…unless I mis-read it, found your report on this subject highly offensive and an insult to the brave women and men who are prepared to risk life and limb on our behalf.

    Daring was built in Scotland and is based in my home town Portsmouth.

    Just thought I had to say something about this

    Bob, Hove

  5. I just wanted to express my sadness at hearing that Margaret Annfield, Co-ordinator of the North Argyll Car Scheme had passed away.

    This lady helped make my life as a long distance carer much easier and my mum would not have been able to attend hospital and doctor’s appointments without this invaluable service. Sadly residents living in rural parts of Argyll often find themselves severely disadvantaged because of their location. The North Argyll Car Scheme has helped to go some way to remedy this.

    My mum and I will always be grateful to Margaret for setting up this invaluable service – as we are to the many selfless volunteers who continue to keep it running today.

  6. Your servers need looking at.

    Response times are becoming very slow from any of the fibre optic connections I use in West London.
