Wood Farm Rock

Wood Farm Rock in the Kyles of Bute has long been a place of grounding and expensive keel damage. The positioning of the buoy which moves with the tide has often been misleading.  The CYCA has coordinated its replacement with a North cardinal perch secured to the NE corner of the rock and this has been completed with much thanks to Jamie McGarry of Gareloch Support Services. The full story can be read on the CYCA website or on clydesailing.  The photo below (looking roughly North) shows the new perch in position with the old buoy, just before it was lifted, lying to the tide.
