Almost 30 members enjoyed a very social laying up supper on Saturday 19th October, starting with an excellent meal from Marshona and her team from Bosun's Table. The blade of beef was very tasty, and the vegetarian curry was also much appreciated.
After the 50:50 draw (results in next newsletter), Gordon briefly summarised Colin Brook's report (attached) of the six summer cruises in company held over the season. The average turnout was 7 boats, with a maximum of 12, to destinations including Tarbert, Rhu, Troon, and the moorings at Kames. There was no long cruise in company this season, and maybe there is now less interest in these cruises, but participation in the weekend cruises remains strong, and we will plan similar c-in-c's next season.
Colin has volunteered to continue as summer c-in-c coordinator, and Ann Cochrane has offered to coordinate the winter activities, starting with this evening's supper. We will continue with the winter talk format which was very successful last winter - a combination of longer topics from speakers, and shorter presentations from members. We already have an offer of another time expired liferaft, so we will repeat the very interesting demo from last winter (see the video here), and several ideas for topics for talks. A further half dozen or so ideas were advanced from those around the table. Talks will be held on the Sunday afternoon after quiz nights i.e. 19th January, 16th February, and 15th March, so put these dates in your diary now!
We will also update the cruising notes (see here), and ask members for further updates, plus make a list of members' boats available through the office, so we can identify fellow LSC members when out and about. The list will only include those club members who have given their consent under the club's GDPR policy.
