As the cruising season is now getting underway, the following report from Ronnie Forrest will be useful to those members heading out West!

Good afternoon from Castlebay,

Solus is currently in Barra and the weather is glorious.

A couple of bits of information that may be useful to members have occurred to us as we travelled.

1/  Tobermory:

The working Chanel in all publications is shown as 12. This has changed to 68.

The harbour master is Robert.

The office is now on the top floor and access is by button 1,  not 2 as shown on the board at the door.

2/  Canna:

The cafe has re opened on 5th May under new owners serving drinks and food. They are keen to have the support of yachters, and to support us in return. Closed Tuesdays.

3/ Castlebay:

The new pontoons have opened and although facilities are not fully functional they are progressing. Power and water are available but not yet at all berths. They hope to have this rectified soon. Shower/toilet block are planned but looks like one for next season or very late this season.

Fairlie Yacht Club has grown from its early beginnings in a home in Fairlie to one of the premier yacht clubs in Scotland.

In 2011 we celebrated our Golden Jubilee and find ourselves with a strong membership base enjoying an excellent programme of musters, social events and a highly successful racing programme for those with a competitive streak.

We are continually innovating and keeping the interests of our members as our main focus while encouraging the continuing development of the Club profile in Scottish yachting circles and further afield.

New members and existing members alike will find an activity to suit them at sometime over the year. Whether it is a serious race, a social muster or an off-season activity you will always be welcome.
Please browse our site to see what is on offer and call any committee member or Flag Officer if you need assistance or have any suggestions or comments to assist the further development of our welcoming, informal approach to our sport.

The news is published on the web, by e-mail, or by post together with notice boards at Largs Yacht Haven and Kip Marina.

We can assist with moorings, berthing, training and sailing support. If you need an experienced member to join you for a day or evening to provide a view on any aspect of your yachting needs please contact the committee and we shall endeavour to match someone to your needs. If you are not sure who can help or what to do - please ask.

Good sailing to all!
