Welcome

 

We hope that you find our website informative and helpful.

 

The club runs on an informal basis, and encourages everyone to help each other on the loch or with any boating matters which may arise.

 

We run various activities throughout the season and we encourage our members to take an active role within the club.

 

 

 The club was set up in 1984 for several reasons, the main being to improve and promote safety on the water, and to educate our members and the public regarding many aspects of boating etiquette.These reasons still stand today.

 

The committee looks forward to welcoming new and past members and appreciates input from any member which would improve the club.

Chairman

Important Message for all Members

 

 

Club rule 1.12 states "Vessels in the boat park must not be used for residential purposes".

 

The club committee want to emphasise how important this rule is. Vessels must not be used for overnight accommodation whilst in the boatyard or on the pontoon.

 

Owners who wish to stay on-board overnight must tie up to a mooring buoy.

 

There are also no circumstances where it is acceptable to stay overnight in the boatyard unless part of the security or boatyard team. 

 

It is, however, recognised that vehicles can be parked in the boatyard overnight whilst vessel owners and crew are out on the water.

 

Please ensure you are familiar with all the club rules

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

WASHBAY 

 

Over a short period 5 (five) hoses have "disappeared" from the washbay.

From now on, if you wish to use the washbay please bring your own hose and fittings.

This is clearly not an ideal situation, but rather than continually "losing" club assets, it is thought to be the best solution.

 

 

 

2015 Raft Race Results.

A great turnout of seven rafts took part in the 2015 raft race. The wind and rain decided to join in the fun just as the race started, adding to the effort needed to cross the Loch from Corrow to the village. Well done to all participants and especially to the prize winners.

1st place - "The Ark Goil" skippered by Stewart Findlay

Best raft - "Red October" captained by Chloe Christie

Wooden spoon - "HMS Bedrock" skippered by Fred Flintstone Dougie Ross
