It has become obvious this week that autumn is truly here, and that our evenings are closing in much earlier. From today onwards, all evening sessions will run from 6:00-8:00pm to ensure we have enough light!
Round Raasay 2021 !
We're delighted to announce that the Round Raasay Pursuit Race will be held on 25th September.
The pursuit-style of race means that boats are given staggered start times depending on the vessel's handicap, with the expectation that all boats will arrive at the finish line in quick succession, making for an exciting end to the day! The race will be followed by a BBQ and refreshments at the clubhouse in Scorrybreac.
We request that entries are completed as soon as possible to allow time to determine the individual start times.
We have had more courses and people on the water than ever before if we include the new genres of rowing and windsurfing, so well done everybody, especially our almost-full-time senior instructor Chris Whatley and his great band of instructors. We have had 5 cadet and 2 adult sailing courses, 3 windsurfing courses, 2 powerboat courses
Exciting news! The Round Raasay pursuit race is now organised for the 25th of September. Entries will be required in advance, and the official entry form will be available within the next few days. Write the date on your calendar, and spread the word to all the keelboat owners you know! Keep an eye here even if you don't own a big boat, as Sailing Club members will be offered spaces aboard those boats which require crew!
Sailing for the 2021 season starts Tuesday 4 May with regular sailing Tuesdays (over 16 yo), Wednedsays (juniors stage 1 and 2) and Thursdays (improvers stage 3 and 4 all ages) all at 1830.
Book and pay online.
Any weather cancellations will be notified by 1700 on the day on our Facebook page - NO NOTIFICATION - SAILING IS ON!
There will also be Saturday themed sessions from time to time so watch this space and FB and windsurfing commencing in June.
We have a rowing instructor also available so contact us if you are interested in windsurfing or rowing.
