We had a fantastic turnout of 25 or so volunteers to get the championship slipway ready for this season's major event, the Optimist National Championships at the end of July. Click on "read more" to see more information and photographs of the morning. The white lines are now also done.
The seaweed was 6-9" thick in large areas, so it was a pretty major challenge, but after 3 hours of scraping and shovelling, the slip was pristine, and ready for the 250-300 boats we expect in a week or so. Many, MANY thanks to everyone who helped, and in particular to all our friends in the Firth of Clyde Coastal Rowing Club, to Largs Yacht Haven for the tractor and crew, and our office administrator Julia for her chuck wagon and very welcome refreshments!
