Here is the bulletin for this week, please note change of Racing 3 from Tuesday to Thursday because of the weather forecast.
Report on Weekend events
Push The Boat Out
The Saturday Open Day event was great. There were people of all nations and ages trying sailing, in weather that was miles better than forecast. We’ve had a couple of new members, and some serious enquiries, from the day.
Thanks again to all who came to help or take part, and advertised the event on workplaces.
Sunday we had 3 boats on the water; the wind started as a light easterly and two hours later was a strong south-westerly. We did not go all the way to Abertay sands at the mouth of the river, but to that well known desert island Lucky Scalp.
