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!

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

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 ashore might be in order.
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.
Enjoyable sail-in-company back to Granton aiming to leave Burntisland around 2.30pm/3.00pm
