News Logo Drascombe Sailing, 20th-21st May 2023

The club was pleased to welcome members of the Drascombe Association with visitors from St Mary's loch, Edinburgh and Conway north Wales.

Eight boats arrived on Friday evening so they were ready to make the most of the weekend’s activities. On Saturday our visitors enjoyed a treasure hunt down the loch, even though much was done by rowing due to a lack of wind. The evening meal was followed by an impromptu jam session in the clubhouse session, with recorder, guitar, violin and two small accordions.

Sunday brought a nice easterly breeze that gave all our visitors a chance to enjoy the delights of the loch. Everyone thought we lived up to our motto as ‘the friendly club’. It was great to see so many of these unusual boats and their characterful crews.

Some photos of the event are as follows. (Click to see a larger version of the photographs.)
