Report on Weekend events
We had a good time this weekend, with Ye Amphibious Ancients using our clubhouse on Saturday as the start of a race to the harbour. This may well become an annual event for them. They’re also always on the lookout for both swimming members, and people to drive safety boats.
Sunday we had seven boats on the water, with a trip to Tentsmuir over some interestingly choppy water, with seals, eider ducks, cormorants and so on.

Some Other Items
We hope in September to have Saturday Working Parties for the Building and Club boats, dates being worked on.
The boat park is FULL. A number of unused boats are going to be taken away by their owners, or stacked up to produce some free space. If you have an unused boat please think about what you want to do with it. Thanks to Duncan for producing an up-to-date register on boats, and to Tam for his work in maximising the available space, and keeping the grass short to make it easy to move boats.
Training Level 1 / 2
Duncan has circulated an e-mail about a possible Training Course in September, and has had half-a dozen people interested; we’d have spaces for more if you grab a place quickly.
