Waverley – 18th May 2002

Planned charter was a cruise around Arran
with a call at Brodick and Campbeltown but diverted
to Tarbert and Inveraray due to weather conditions.
Sailed from Greenock and Largs. 
Notes:  John Newth
In mid May, the Club chartered the paddle steamer WAVERLEY.  The original intention was to sail round Arran, calling at Brodick, with time ashore at Campbeltown, in celebration of the centenary of the turbine steamer QUEEN ALEXANDRA of 1902.  A poor weather forecast dictated otherwise, so instead we sailed to another destination associated with Williamson’s steamers – Inveraray.  Despite the change of plans, the members who joined the steamer that day enjoyed their cruise.

It was hard to believe, when we got to Inveraray, that there had been forecast problems with weather earlier which had resulted in our cruise being diverted. The conditions were really ideal at Inveraray and on Loch Fyne.
