Report on Weekend events
The warm, sunny conditions attracted a good turnout on Sunday. 8 boats set sail downriver with the ebbing tide and downwind in a moderate breeze, sailing quite far out along the Abertay sands before landing for lunch while awaiting the tide to turn. It proved to be a long and enjoyable tack back upriver, with the group ashore around 6pm. A successful maiden voyage for Alistair’s new Wanderer “Daisy” with Bill and Brian giving some guests an unexpected swim in the Tay on the way back
