View Full Version : North West Highland Cruise

5-Nov-10, 10:13 PM
HI All, I have set the dates for the North West Highland cruise 2011.

I have given this a lot of thought as it is going to coincide with the Southern Ireland cruise weekend. I would have liked to have gone across to the Ireland event, but the cost of the ferry has put me off. So I have decided to have the North West Scottish cruise from Saturday July 23rd until Sunday August the 7th inclusive. Yep its a long one. http://hoverclub.org.uk/Smileys/akyhne/grin.gif

I have chosen these dates as it gives people from all over, the opportunity to come & cruise for a few days or the whole fifteen days. The kids are on holiday up here in Scotland & down South which is a help to anyone with kids in school. Hopefully the weather will be favorable that time of year, but there is plenty of places of interest you can visit by car if the weather is too bad to cruise.

Any one is welcome who has a hovercraft capable of being used safely in tidal waters.

I will post more details shortly of campsites, B&B's & hotels with contact details. This info will also be posted on my website.

HI all,

I am changing the dates slightly for the West Highland Hovercraft Cruise.http://hoverclub.org.uk/Smileys/akyhne/sad.gif

I am setting the finish date one day early so it will now take place from Sat 23rd July until Sat 6th August.

I am altering the dates because of a large group of people in our area, would be upset as it goes against their religious beliefs with the event finishing on a Sunday. I'm not religous myself and I'm not going to pretend I understand what difference it makes, but to show this group of people that we are willing to compromise by finishing on the Saturday rather than the Sunday. Hopefully these people will then not try to block any future hovercraft events taking place in this area.

There is nothing to stop any attendees of the event using their hovercraft on this or any other Sunday, I often use my craft on Sundays, but please don't operate for long periods near to shore or the churches.

Its a pity about the clash of dates, but I can only wish the very best of luck and weather to the North Western Britain cruise.

Is there any chance this event can be added to the calendar to help members & non members remember this event is taking place. There are a few craft coming to the event and even if the weather turns nasty making it difficult or impossable to take the hovercraft out on some days, the area has plenty of places for families to visit.

This area is stunning any time of the year and worth a visit.
