Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 29th May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. I've expanded the notes on paying for moorings at Millport and revised the overnight payment from £15 to £10 . I've also added a contact number for the local people who look after the buoys. Charts have been updated.

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. As far as I can tell there have been no changes here this year

Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 3rd Apr 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. I have been unable to discover for certain whether North Ayre Council intends deploying the blue "courtesy" buoys in Millport Bay again this year. If anyone reading this knows who, in the NAC, is responsible for these I would appreciate a heads up. Other than that there are no changes of note.
Update 2013

The notes for the Cumbraes were updated by Don T in February 2013. There has been little change here.
