The final muster of the cruising group will take the form of a day sail (weather permitting) on Saturday 29th September followed by dinner in the clubhouse - 6.30 for 7pm. So even if you don’t want to sail, you can always just come along for the meal. Please contact Avril (email@example.com, 01475 670022) by Wednesday to book your meal and discuss any dietary requirements. This will be a two course meal for £14.
Those of us going on the water should meet in the clubhouse at 9.30 am to decide what we want to do.
Hope to see you soon

Weekend cruise in company - 1st-2nd September - Destination Portavadie
Sat 1st Sep 2018 to Sun 2nd Sep 2018
Following the very enjoyable weekend cruise in company to Holy Loch in early August, with 8 boats participating, the next c-in-c is "Destination Portavadie".
Portavadie will provide us with a good sail out, relaxing time in the spa for those thus inclined, and a group dinner in the Lodge to socialise and swap stories and experiences in the evening. Colin and Sue Brook (Inclination) will lead the group starting with a pre cruise briefing in the clubhouse on Saturday 1st September at 9.30 am*. This is the penultimate Cruise in Company for this season so let’s make it a great one!
The clubhouse was busy at the LSTA's information evening, with returning cadets, new cadets, and parents hearing of the season's plans from Johnathan Briggs, then Bill Forsyth about clothing and other practicalities. Courses start on Monday 23rd April. For more information, and to book junior and adult courses, see here.
New for 2018 is a new race group called the “Largs Development Squad”. This will be for dedicated race training with the goal of making the kids more competitive in races. We only have 12 places for this squad and to get it you must own your own Topper, Oppie or Laser.
Knowledge of first aid is a great thing to have, but is essential for any of us who cruise in more remote locations. There are a number of places left - £80 for members (non-members £100), including manual and lunch. Book on line at https://webcollect.org.uk/lsta/category/shorebased-courses.
