Extended Cruise in Company - round Loch Fyne - 2nd-6th September

Extended Cruise in Company - round Loch Fyne - 2nd-6th September

The cruise in company "round the Mull of Kintyre" became a "round Loch Fyne" cruise, in view of the forecast, with 7 boats joining in - Corshyecan, Aliandy, Bethany, Carpe Diem, Inclination, Night Owl, and Sunshine.

An added reason to socialise was to celebrate Marilyn's Robertson's significant birthday, with group meals in Starfish in Tarbert, and the Oystercatcher at Otter Ferry. Plus of course the pre-dinner gatherings on each other's boats - many thanks to Corshyecan, Aliandy, and Inclination for their generous hospitality.

Great send-off for Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust Round Britain relay!

Some pictures from today's great LSC send-off (look at the crowd on our balcony) for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust Round Britain relay, starting with Ellen doing some boatbuilding with our cadets!!

The five-month voyage will see over 100 young people in recovery from cancer take part in the extraordinary challenge - sailing around Britain in a national relay, celebrating achievement and realising potential. The crews will visit over 60 towns and ports with activities planned in each port. First stop is Glasgow, then Oban, and up the Caledonian Canal, and onwards. More information on the EMCT web site here.

Fair winds and good passages, and we look forward to welcoming the boat back in Largs in September.
