Subject: RE: Scotland trip plans
Martin, I'm thinking of going to Greenock - I missed the Tall Ships at Dublin last year, though I was at Cruinniu na mBad. The latter event is good for sessions as well as for boats. Is there any music around the tall ships, shanties, etc? There's to be a Sail Hebrides event in the Western Isles first week of August; I think it will be a small affair - they had hoped to attract the Tall Ships to stop over. Anyway, Martin, how do you get to participate in such an adventure? I'm only a novice going out on dinghies and Toppers, but I have a good friend who is an experienced sailor and would love to do something like you're doing (not a musician, alas, but he cooked on a fishing boat so he'd be some use besides crewing). I'm at 1997-pr@smo.uhi.ac.uk untut 14 June.
