John Hunter will be holding a workshop on Ropework: Knots, Splices and Whipping on the 21st January at 7pm.
The workshops he ran last year were well received, so well worth attending.
The 2019 Handbook is available to pick up at the Bell Block.
The sailing programme is also viewable on this website here
As you’ll all be looking for distractions in this cold weather with its long nights, we’ve added some winter events in the Bell Block involving splicing, knots and race officer duties to our calendar.
Thanks to Libby for the artwork…
Five yachts took part in the overnight race from Granton to the Tay. As the day approached there was much debate about the conditions and potential course alterations. In the end it was felt prudent not to venture out to the Bell Rock and effectively go straight to the finish at the mouth of the Tay. Most yachts had an exhilarating sail overnight to join Lady Nadonna who cruised up the previous day. Many a good tale was told over beer for the next two nights at the Royal Tay’s Ale Festival before a rather wet sail home on the Sunday.
