This Weeks Sailing – Sail, Run, Row

Saturday 27 May – Sail, Run, Row

In conjunction with the Newhaven Coastal Rowers this eagerly anticipated fixture features sailors, runners and rowers come together in an exciting relay race.  Whilst competitive this is a fantastic day out for the participants, onlookers and friends and family culminating in a BBQ and prize giving.  Truly a great social occasion so why not come along and support one of the key events on the FCYC calendar.

Sunday – Inchkeith Trophy

Sunday 21 May is the first Joint Passage Race which sees us race round Inchkeith (and a few other marks!).  This is also one of the Forth Inshore Group events so there should be a healthy turnout. Lets encourage the same from the Corinthians!

Full sailing instructions on the Forth Yacht Club Association website.

Cruise in Company Sunday 18 September

CramondDestination Cramond – H.W. 1634hrs (B.S.T.)

For the fifth and final in our series of ‘Cruise in Company’ events the proposal, back by popular demand, is to head to Cramond Boat Club. The tides are perfect (range 5.8m) and wind forecast is south-westerly’s (8 – 10 kts). Once in front of the Clubhouse berthing will require us to raft against the wall.

Meet at Granton on the pontoon at 1.00pm

Cramond B.C. have kindly offered us the use of their gas BBQ located on their sun-deck so bring some sausages/burgers for your lunch

Enjoyable motor/sail-in-company back to Granton aiming to leave Cramond about 4.30pm. If tides are still high some skippers might like to sail through the teeth!

Everyone encouraged to join in the cruise including families, children, dogs and dinghies!
