This was a first time for the club. Lots of preparation with getting suitable boats ready and lots of phone calls to get enough volunteers to do all the tasks. Sandwiched between two glorious weeks of warm sunshine, the day dawned – misty, drizzle, colder and no wind – dreich even by Scottish standards. However, the enthusiasm to try out what was on offer (free and a modestly priced catering and BBQ) soon had the clubhouse and slipway buzzing with families and students.


Our Principal had done a brilliant job with organising the support, being there and ready to welcome the participants, filling in the forms (permissions, medical conditions and details so we could contact them again). Fitting visitors out with tally wristbands, lifejackets or buoyancy aids as appropriate and then directing them down the slipway to our capable beachmaster.
