Corrina's Cadet's eye-view of
2016 at Skye Sailing
Join Corrina for her 'on-board' footage of a Cadet's year at Skye Sailing... squeezed into just 13 minutes and proving it's about so much more than boats!
In 2016 Skye Sailing Club upgragded its facilities and equipment –The Scorrybreac on the north shore of Portree Harbour now has a refurbished boatshed and clubhouse with teaching and conference room; on the foreshore a new fleet of dinghies enhances the Club's training opportunities in sailing, rowing and powerboating.
The Club's usual evening sailing sessions on weekdays are now finished for 2016 because there is not enough light but weekend sailing will continue to make use of the glorious autumnal weather on Skye whenever possible.
If you have always wanted to make more use of the harbour and see Portree and the Cuillin from a different perpspective, get in touch, come along and give it a go if it's still warm enough – or put it on your 'To Do' list for 2017!
Amaze yourself... try some boating!
