It was a damp and cold start to the day, but it soon ‘came away nice.’ And despite a very low tide mid-morning, it all went without a hitch. Thanks as ever to our indefatigable harbour secretary George Mackay, and of course to the excellent tutelage provided by Lachie. Here’s a selection of photos from the day.
… to go until lift in! Some snaps of people round the yard taking advantage of the fine weather and the Monday Holiday (though many of them look suspiciously as if they’re retired in any case).
Members may be interested in the attached notice (see link below) which once again offers FCYC members access to the excellent RFYC Water Taxi Service (now 7 days a week!), as well as their crane for boat and mast lifts.
Lift In is booked for Saturday 9th April 2016, 7am start (weather permitting).
The Harbour Secretary would also like to remind boat owners that they are expected to attend at least one mooring work party if they wish to have the use of an FCYC mooring in the sailing season.
There is still time to do your bit if you have not been involved to date. Just give GM a call to volunteer!
Our 2015 Prize-giving and Christmas Party will be held on Saturday 5th December at Trinity Bowling Club, Lomond Road, Edinburgh.
A buffet will be laid on, please let us know if you can make it as this helps with the catering. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
You’re all invited to come along to the Corinthian Creative Cafe on Saturday 7th November at Trinity Bowling Club, starting at 7pm.
As discussed at the AGM earlier this month, now that yard space has been secured it is a good time to look ahead to the future for FCYC.
The purpose of the evening is to give all members the opportunity to share views on how you would like to see the club develop so it would be great if you can make it.
See you there!
Work well underway to be ready in time for lift-out…
