In true enthusiast style, some Club members had opted for a ‘double-decker’ — outward on Waverley to Campbeltown and return to Ardrossan on CalMac car ferry Isle of Arran (or vice versa), this being the only day in 2015 that such a combination was possible. But it was CRSC honorary secretary Eric Schofield who plotted the most adventurous itinerary — a ‘triple-decker’ that took him on Caledonian Isles’ 9.45am sailing to Brodick, bus to Lochranza, Waverley to Campbeltown and then back to Ardrossan on Isle of Arran. Of course, this wasn’t just a day for enthusiasts. Glasgow grannies — that intrepid breed — sat absorbing the sea air. Young families enjoyed the novelty of open decks. Small groups of all ages chatted and watched and relaxed.
