2018 is proving to be a bit quieter than 2017. 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.

The start of the current season was pretty busy too! RYA Scotland ran 420, Laser, Topper and Optimist training academies throughout January, February and March. In addition, the 2018 Winter Series had a superb turnout, with the weather no more adverse than had been expected!

Ashore, the changing room floors and benches have gone through long-overdue refurbishment, along with some adjustments to the ventilation system. Next up is the installation of a CCTV and lighting mast at the slipway head, to assist with security and to make late trips ashore from the moorings just a little bit easier in the dark; plus a new storage facility for mowers and other bulky kit.

A solid Training schedule is in place and nearly fully-booked already; plus a small fleet of new SailQubes has been purchased to take over from the ageing Optimists.

Socially, the bi-annual Burns Supper was a sell-out, yet again, and a New Members evening will be scheduled once spring is firmly in the air.

The fees for 2018 can be found in the "About" page - minimal changes from 2017 - and the annual Subscription Request cycle started in late February.

Happy Sailing!
