Apologies to everyone for not giving you a fixed plan for all.

This weekend calls for a little flexibility;

Weather conditions Saturday couldn't be better so trip to the islands on the water no later then 1100hrs.

Some want to off shore camp on islands and that's grand. Those that want to do it as a day trip and base themselves in Doolin I will facilitate that.

IF YOU INTEND TO CAMP ARAN SATURDAY NIGHT YOU MUST BE OF L3/4 STANDARD

Sunday is showing up to F5 westerly-Swell up to 2 metres. It'll be dry though.
Cliffs are doable - we won't get close but it'll be a lovely trip out and back. I'll be at Doolin pier 1000hrs on water no later then 1100hrs.
"No plan survives contact with the enemy" or the weather so I may change the route Sunday depending on the prevailing conditions but we will get out.

NOBODY UNLOAD CARS SUNDAY MORNING UNTIL I CALL IT ----THANKS

May change venue to suit weather.

I'm trying to give everyone options they are happy with. Some may not enjoy a following sea back from Aran on Sunday so there is other options for them.

Think about what you'd like to do. If your off shore camping arrive in plenty of time and pack early. If your basing yourself in Doolin and are coming back with me Saturday then that's grand too.
