Extended Cruise in Company

A week long (informal) cruise around Kintyre
Sat 20th Aug 2016 to Sun 28th Aug 2016

It was the intention that this cruise would take in popular destinations such as Gigha, Port Ellen, Crinan Canal and more, but unfortunately no-one has volunteered to lead this, so this will no longer be a calendared event for this year. However, several Largs SC boats are likely still to be around and about over this period, so keep in touch via the cruising group e-mail circulation list, and meet up informally.

Cruise in Company

Weekend cruise in company
Sat 13th Aug 2016 to Sun 14th Aug 2016

The planned destination is Loch Riddon, anchoring in the north west corner, just east of the moorings, with a BBQ ashore in the evening. There is plenty of room in this area, with good holding in 9-12m (don't go too far north - the loch dries out for a LONG way!), and Riddon is safe in anything but a strong southerly.

This will be reviewed at our normal Saturday morning meeting - meet in the clubhouse main lounge at 0930 Saturday 13th August, please.

The cruise coordinators are Ann and Gordon Cochrane on Night Owl -
