Mo’s Travels

Congratulations to intrepid Forth Corinthian, Morag Edward, who has successfully sailed the Atlantic.  She left Cascais in Portugal on 18th September on The Europa, a tall ship training vessel and landed in Puerto Madryn in Patagonia on 17th November 2022.

Mo is still in Puerto Madryn, where she has resumed her artistic career and is busy painting the local penguins, who are very happy to pose. Mo, who speaks Spanish has recently taken part in a local art fair. 

She is hoping to move to Buenos Aires in April, but is tempted to return to Puerto Madryn in September to see the enormous Right Whales congregate in the bay for the breeding season.

What an adventure.  Well done Mo.

Lift Out 2019

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.


This Weeks Sailing – Commodore’s Regatta – Postponed

Weather reports showing uncertain wind conditions together with a general lack of confirmed participants would suggest that this event is postponed.  The event will now be run on Saturday 6 October with a start time of 12 noon and the seasons wash up meeting at 2pm.
Just a reminder that this Saturday is the last organised outing of the season – the Commodore’s Closing Regatta/Parade of Sail.
The rules are as for the White Sail Series with a start time of 15:00. Race will be about an hour long.
There will be briefing at 14:00hrs and a season’s de briefing after the race around 16:30hrs
Weather dependant there will be a BBQ, so bring your own food and drink.
This event is really suitable for all who like to play on the water so please come along, join in and give our outgoing Commodore a fantastic send off.
If anyone cannot make the sailing, please come along at 16:30hrs for a season’s de brief, so we can hear comments to organise what we do next year..
Hope to see as many as possible on Saturday.

Friday White Sail 8 Results

The last scheduled Friday White Sail race of the season had a new winner – well done Mark and Pam on Dorado.  Apologies to Peter as a miscalculation awarded them a third which really should have been a second.

1. Dorado
2. Indulgence
3. Eclipse
4. Tyche
5. Kashangi II
6. Malin

Lastly thanks to Martin and Eddie for performing the Race Officer duties.


Bell Rock Race Results

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.
1. Misty Blue
2. Joint Venture (FCC)
3. Eclipse
4. SmiJ
5. Kashangi II
Our thanks go to Frank for organising and the Royal Tay for their exceptional hospitality.
