After a successful series of well attended "Winter Musters" at the Pond Hotel we turn our attention to the coming sailing season with the rush now on to ready our boats for the water.
Our first event the Bute race to Largs marina on the 30th of April, great race round Bute to blow away the cobwebs of our winter hibernation, followed swiftly by our Opening Muster 7th May from Kip to Rhu with a Party at the RNCYC and Commodore's Breakfast on the Sunday morning a great way to catch up with your plans for the coming season.
Our first cruise in company 13/15 May is to Loch Goil, where we plan to have a meal at the Hotel on Saturday and I would especially invite any new Members to join in. As always plans for the cruise will be weather dependent, a quiet weekend sailing in our traditional waters of the Clyde and meeting up with our fellow Members for a wee dram or two.
27th/30th May "Silvers Marine Scottish Series" is a must for all racers and cruisers to Scotland's Premier Sailing event - come and join the fun at Tarbert , get your entries in now, for the racers a full series of racing in and around Tarbert - pit you wits against all the top sailors. For the cruisers, a party at Largs on the Thursday night followed by the passage race to Tarbert then all the usual parties at the prize givings each night, the Big Band bash on the Saturday with everyone enjoying the ambiance of the pubs and hotels in Tarbert for a great fun weekend.
Looking forward to see you all in the water.
NB those wishing to join us for the Cruise to Ireland in July please let the office know, so we can cater for numbers at the four venues along the way, you can come to some or all!
