Last season was exceptionally busy and many members are still catching their breath after heroic efforts in support of the club. 2018 promises to be a bit quieter - in theory! The biggest event on the horizon is the RYA Scotland Zone Championships on 29-30 September, coupled with welcome returns from the Solos and RS200s also both at the tail end of the season. Other repeat fixtures will be the RNLI Fashion Show in April, the Round Table Ale Festival in May and the Mudhook YC Regatta in June. The start of the season has however been far from restful - RYA Scotland has hosted 420, Laser, Topper and Optimist training academies throughout January and February with the last session booked for mid-March.

In addition, the 2018 Winter Series got off to a flying start on 4 February with 22 boats participating. This will continue on Sundays to mid-March, with some contingency dates in the diary should racing days be lost to bad weather.
