Winter Walk

Perhaps the title says it all!

Not all those that started the walk through Dodd Wood made it to the top, here’s those that did!

Restoration/Repair Project

My Scorpion’s fore deck was damaged when a visiting worker dropped something through it. The insurance would only give me the boat’s market value, which was less than the repair cost.

The boat is in reasonable condition and very enjoyable to sail.
I hope someone (apprentice at a boat yard?) would like to repair/restore this boat.

If so, please come and take it away, on its trailer – with mast, boom, rudder, sails (main, jib & spinnaker).

Bass’ Burns Night Supper

Views were unanimous. This was the best Members’ social event at the Clubhouse for quite a while. Claire, Lucy and Kirstie had pulled out all the stops. There were immaculate tartan table covers and serviettes plus a wee dram of whisky at each place setting. In the absence of a piper, Alistair was in charge of downloading the themed music.

And then the guests arrived with some suitably attired for the occasion. Pauline wore, arguably, the most chic Scottish outfit while Graham had, without doubt, the most flamboyant national dress – to which Judith commented that he wasn’t with her!

Proceedings started with Mark summoning all to the tables before AJ, complete with kilt, recited an Ode to the Haggis ending in the ritual stabbing! This was accompanied by Alistair’s bagpipes and the downing of the dram! The three chefs then served all with the main course featuring the haggis and, despite generous portions, there was another helping for all who fancied one. Next came a fruit pudding with whisky laced cream for those who dared. And, finally, a gigantic cheeseboard with six varieties of cheese was placed on each table.

Some abandoned this final offering and took to the dance floor to make the most of the music which, by then, seemed to have moved into an Irish theme! Others just relaxed and chatted at their tables and nearly three hours had passed before some made the move for home.

Who needs a sailing season when we can have pre season events like this one?

Thomas’ Twitterings

The event provoked some thoughts and observations from a man that almost always has a camera to hand


The great chieftain o the pudding race is addressed by AJ. Probably the only time a Haggis has been addressed by a kilt wearing Sassenach wearing gold coloured Budgie Smugglers under his kilt


These galley slaves briefly deserted their post trying to have a peek at the Budgie Smugglers, obviously they had been given information about what Alan was wearing under the kilt.


The MacPatricks were there too!

Subscription Renewals

In the early hours of New Year’s day, our membership system, WebCollect, auto generated renewals and emailed members the categories that are being renewed, and the method of collection.

A subsequent email seems to have caused some confusion resulting in various members duplicating their subscription order. These additional orders are being monitored and corrected as necessary.

If changes to your membership categories from last year are necessary either let David know, or login and make the necessary amendments.

If you wish to take up an option to pay for camping weekends at a discounted rate, this can be added without having to re-enter your membership categories.

If you have any queries or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
