POSTPONED due to Coronavirus Pandemic
Update (June 2020): We had planned to sail in a flotilla of at least 4 charter boats joined by several Club Members who keep their boats on the Clyde. Alas, it is unlikely that lockdown will be sufficiently eased to make the flotilla viable so we've postponed to the week beginning the 24th July 2021. If you're keen to join the flotilla next year (either as a skipper or as crew, if berths become available), please get in touch.
With a growing number of members and boats in Scotland, we're planning to hold a Club flotilla exploring the Firth Clyde for our Ruby Jubilee year. It's a spectacular sailing area with some useful introductions from Sail Scotland and Largs Yacht Haven. Several skippers with local knowledge have proposed a rough itinerary:
Largs > Rothesay > Tighnabruaich > Tarbert > Campbeltown > Lamlash > Largs
If you're already planning to join the flotilla, or interested in potentially joining the flotilla, please sign up to this event. Registration means that we'll include you in all communications regarding the flotilla plans and also, if you mark yourself down as crew looking for a berth or skipper looking for crew, then we'll do what we can to try and match you up with a skipper with space on their boat.
Charter Base: Largs Yacht Haven (easily accessible by road, rail and air)
Dates: Saturday 24th - Saturday 31st July 2021
Charter Options: We are discussion with local charter firms, currently several 37 to 45 ft boats are available and cost between £2000 and £3000 for the week.
Feel free to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any more detailed information at this stage. It goes without saying that the sooner we can firm up on numbers and secure reservations with the charter company, the better.
