Re: Roa Island Sailing Club

That's what you call a pickup strop. Beware if you go upstream at mid tide inside from those moorings to the next dolphin, Head Scar, it's not called that for nothing. The rocky Head scar juts out, me and Stedfast found out the hard way, good job the Leisure's were built like brick dunny houses in t...

Re: Piel moorings

My pennyworth, they need a 2m mooring strop on the end, it must be very difficult for high decked boats to get them if there's a good breeze and tide. Also the very outer one could do with moving inshore and numbers 1 and 2 moving up Towards the pub, they are a long way for tender to get to.

Piel moorings

Beware, just had my cable knawed through by the ring on no. 2. It was blowing a good 5 in the night and pitching and rolling all over the place. I was saved by the pickup can getting caught in the cleat, otherwise I'd have woken up under the bridge at Barrow

Re: Mooring on Lune available?

Hi Lee, it's good holding if you want to anchor among the moorings, it's not deep either, just check you've got enough water under you to get away when you want. Anchor just before the catermaran, between it and the green motor sailer and you'll have no problem. I often go out there for the night, I...
