Mucking about in boats for a whole week with friends – that’s what it’s all about at our annual Junior Summer Week! 

This year, 18 of our young members signed up for the week-long summer camp where the club’s instructor team guided them through their RYA Stages and led them on day-long adventures cruising around the Gareloch "Swallows and Amazons" style.  They had picnics on the beach, did some wild swimming, participated in a regatta and played ‘how many kids does it take to sink an Oppie?’ (The answer: 18!!).

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.

Champ repainted and recommissioned.
CCTV, Slipway Lighting, and Webcams all completed and activated.
Inflatables Rack Refurbishment completed.
