It has been debated and agreed at Council that “Lift In”, scheduled for the 18th April 2020, should be postponed.
A date for rescheduling will be agreed in line with Government guidance and advice on Coronavirus during the following weeks.
This notification of postponement may seem premature being four weeks to 18th April but the next four weeks are probably the busiest in the clubs year with boats still needing to be prepared for the season. In line with the Government advice to self isolate if required, minimise contact with others and concern for the over 70’s and those in the “at risk” category, it makes sense to eliminate unnecessary contact with others at the yard and Bell Block.
I trust we have your support on this decision and that we can look forward to enjoying ourselves on the water albeit a bit later in the year than normal.
Please follow the Government advice on Coronavirus and keep yourself and families safe and please be considerate to others.
Sadly now cancelled!

Carolyn Voisey has had a varied relationship with the sea: – sailor, deliverer of boats, retired marine surveyor and volunteer standby engineer with the RNLI. She has been on approximately 200 shouts.
She is currently the Commodore of Troon Cruising Club, which like FCYC, provides affordable sailing for all. Between 1976 and 1978, before Carolyn joined the club, it’s existence was threatened by the building of Troon Marina. The issue reached the Houses of Parliament before a solution was found and Troon Crusing Club was saved.
Carolyn, a lively raconteur, will talk to us about some or all of the above topics. There will be an opportunity for questions after.
Yes folks, it’s Saturday 18th April 2020

Ahoy Corinthians, just a reminder that lift out is set for Saturday 19th October.
Could all boat owners please let me know ASAP what there intentions are for the winter and lift out so the harbour guys can organise the yard etc. Do you want to have your boat in the yard, leave on the pontoon for winter sailing or other arrangements etc.
Andy Gunn – Harbour Sec.
Don’t forget – the Parade of Sail Commodore’s Regatta is on Sunday 5th May, starting at 14:00.
This will be followed by a barbeque in the boatyard afterwards.
