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

 

Midsummer Pontoon Party

Ahoy Corinthians!
Are you free on the evening of Friday 24th June?
It would be wonderful if you could join us all for our Midsummer Pontoon Party on the EML pontoon.
It’s been a good while since we’ve had one and Midsummer seems the perfect time.
We anticipate good food, good chat and some good music too!
The party starts around 7pm although the racers will be joining slightly later, after the Joint White Sail race finishes.
If you don’t want to bother cooking, take advantage of the Carry Out option, where food orders and payment will be taken, from menus available at either the RFYC bar or on the pontoon itself, starting around 5.30pm.
The menus are available to look at in advance from the RFYC clubhouse bar.
The food will be ordered at 7.30pm, so if you place your order before you go racing, it will be delivered in time for your return.
If you have bunting, please dress your boat up for the party- the brighter the better!
This is a FREE EVENT! We just want to encourage folk to meet up and have a bit of fun.
It’s also a BYOB event, so you can drink whatever you want but please take responsibility for and dispose of your own rubbish.
If you have any questions at all, please ask Sandra at the RFYC office on 0131 552 8560 or via email on royalforth@btconnect.com
We look forward to seeing you there! “

Aberdour

I can see the pub from here Corinthians . . . . . . . !

Destination Aberdour – H.W. 1511hrs (B.S.T.)

Following on from our last Cruise in Company to Cramond Boat Club the proposal for this Sunday’s outing is to head to Aberdour. Tides are ideal with high tide at 3.00pm which gives all dad’s enough time for a long lie, enjoy breakfast in bed before heading down to the harbour – meeting on the pontoon at 12.30pm

The (current) forecast is predicting light winds from the south which should allow a leisurely down-wind sail to our destination – aiming to arrive around 2.00pm/2.30pm.

Enjoy your picnic lunch and a refreshment while rafted up with other club boats and for the more energetic – a regimental march up to the Cedar Inn where the new owners are waiting for your custom.

Enjoyable sail-in-company back to Granton (or charge your batteries with the engine!) leaving Aberdour around 4.00pm

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