Cruise in Company – Inchkeith Harbour Sunday 14th August 2016

InchkeithDestination Inchkeith Harbour– H.W. 1225hrs (B.S.T.)

For the fourth and final in our series of ‘Cruise in Company’ events the proposal is to head to Inchkeith Harbour. The tides are still ‘neepie’ (range 2.6m) and wind forecast is for light westerlies (7 – 9 kts). Getting there should be easy sail or motor sail (trail your mackerel lines!) but looks like it will be an iron spinnaker home. Once in the harbour berthing is likely to be to raft up – similar to the arrangement we had at Burntisland.

 Meet at Granton on the pontoon at 11.00am

Enjoy your picnic lunch and refreshment while rafted up with other club boats and for the more energetic – a wee dawnder up to Inchkeith Lighthouse might be in order.

Enjoyable motor/sail-in-company back to Granton aiming to leaving the island around 2.00pm

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

Cruise in Company 31 July 2016

Ahoy Corinthians – Destination Burntisland – H.W. 1326hrs (B.S.T.)
For the third in our series of ‘Cruise in Company’ events the proposal is to head to Burntiisland Harbour. The decision is based on forecast westerly winds being around 15 – 20 knots (gusts). A sail to Burntisland is a relatively straight sail for those light handed and with young crew. Once in the harbour preferred berthing is to raft up in the inner harbour which is well sheltered. diagram here –  Forth Corinthian Yacht Club – CiC July 2016

It’s also Burntisland Sailing Club’s Regatta on Sunday and I have contacted the commodore to alert him to our plans and I have asked if we can visit their clubhouse. I’ll let everyone know on Sunday if this is possible.

East Sailing Festival

From Patrick Angier at RFYC:

The East Sailing Festival is on this coming weekend. The racing series starts on Wednesday but over the weekend are a series of events and parties for those not so interested in racing. Port Edgar are offering over night moorings for £10 per night and there is a fleet of boats from both clubs at Granton who intending to sail up on Friday evening to join in the fun. Boats that I know of intending to come up start in size at 12ft.

Some well organised folk have put in applications via kwww.ecsf.org.uk but there are may who are still thinking about it. I understand that Port Edgar will make space available for everybody, even those who haven’t booked, but it is worth while ringing Port Edgar and booking a space if you are intending to come. There is a cruise down to Burntisland Sailing club on the Saturday for a lunchtime Hog Roast. If you would like to join this please let George Scrivener know asap so the caterers know how many to expect.

On Friday evening high tide is at c19.30. We have scheduled a cruise in company up to Port Edgar starting at 17.00 in the calendar. Given the tide and that it can take a couple of hours to get up to Port Edgar we should aim to leave Granton by 17.30. It would be nice to sail together as a fleet of both Royal Forth and Corinthians so if we can all congregate in Wardy Bay and aim to leave a line between the H racing mark and the old white starting hut on the Granton Harbour wall at timings as follows.

Small Boats – i.e. dinghies and slow small yachts – 17.10

Slow boats – i.e. cruising boats 22 to 28ft – 17.20

Faster Boats – 17.30 and if you are very fast then 17.40.

Most skippers should have a good idea of how fast they can go.

It is not a race and there will not be official starting guns etc – skippers should cross the line via their own watch.

Appreciate that for many 17.00 will be too early given tedious other activities that get in the way of sailing, so do come along later, or intercept and join the cruise on Saturday.

For those who use the RFYC taxi, note timings for the Boatman on Friday. John Spencely is driving the launch from 16.00 to 17.00 and then Dylan is on from 18.00.

Events in June 2015

For your diaries:

Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June Edinburgh Gin Regatta.
Saturday 20 June Sail Run Row Race.
Please support both these club events.

Please inform Eddie Myatt if you are able to take part in the Sail Run Row race on the 20th we need a minimum of 10 club yachts to make this event as successful as it was last year.  Don’t worry if you aren’t a racer this event is more about fun than racing, but I need at least 10 skippers to commit to turn up.
