Our thanks to everyone who responded to the Satisfaction Survey run by the RYA in June. The results for our club are here.

The response level was relatively low (27.4%), but in line with response rates in clubs across the UK (29.6%). We are quite pleased to be well into the top quartile of results, at 87.7% Members' Satisfaction. The UK average was 83.2%. We will take time to examine the results and to learn from them. Our response and Action Plan will be posted here and emailed to members.

What is encouraging is to see that we exceed members' expectations in almost all areas. We do, however, need to find out more about where we fall short:

West Highland Yachting Week (Craobh/Oban/Tobermory)

2018 is proving to be a bit quieter than2017. The biggest event on the horizon is the RYA Scotland Zone Championships on 29-30 September, coupled with welcome returns from the Solos and RS200s also both at the tail end of the season.
