Whatever Happened to Cloe

I’ve just had a look at the diary to check on how many yachts we had by this time last year, June 23rd 2013,142. So far this year to date 22nd June we have had 142 yacht/boat visits.

Started this blog on Sunday now it is Tuesday, been busy. The gist of the blog was the yachts I met on my first few years on Rona and whatever happened to them. Here’s one!

Roger and the one eyed dog

Yacht Cloe was a live aboard, we have not seen them for a few years and Feshie of Caladh was here at the weekend and we were all wondering where they went. Roger ‘Chloe’s’ skipper was not keeping so well latterly  and Jean his partner  was doing most of the sailing. I always looked forward to their visits, they definitely had a lot of character!!!!

Moira and Malcolm

Moira and Malcolm are well ‘kent’ sailors on the West coast and we look forward to their annual visit and catch up but this last visit I had the summer cold for the second time so we did not get much socialising. Maybe they will be back. I’ll work on Malcolm yet again to leave the ‘Feshie’ here for me to play on, one of my favourite yachts. Yes there are some!!!!

One of our visitors I cannot remember the Yachts name maybe Bullard?? Was asking who all the names were, Hugh, Calum, Irene, Dorte etc  etc. So I have to write a list of the main characters, will do asap.

Anyway it is a beautiful night and I am going North to look for some deer. The weekly report will follow tomorrow. If I do not get it done then I will not get it done at all. Dorte, Arne (Rona Owners) and their family are descending on us so it is all hands on deck before they arrive Saturday.

About Bill Cowie

I've been living on the island since April 2002, alone for the first 5 years, my partner L joined me in 2007. We manage the Island for a Danish family who bought the Island in the early 90's. Their hopes for the Island are to make it self sufficient supporting its inhabitants and that is where we come in. We look after the stock, 3 holiday cottages, machinery, boat and of course the visitors. It is pretty challenging but it is a beautiful place to live and work, we love it and strangely enough we love it even more in the depths of winter when all is quiet apart from the gales and rain. We do a bit of fishing, stock work, stalking deer and loads of other stuff. We have good support from lots of people whom we have met over the years and have become involved in the Island. Too many to mention here but keep an eye on the blog, they'll be there for sure in the future.
