The RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat in dinghies, yachts, windsurfers, canoes or powerboats and on inland waters or the sea.
As many members will know, Sue Kirby retired from Largs Chandlers earlier this year, after nearly 30 years of giving help, advice and assistance (and the odd comment!) to customers. What is maybe less well known to newer members is her long, long service to Largs SC, particularly to the cadets. She had two spells as cadet convenor, and was a major player in the club gaining its status as an RYA accredited training centre. She also had several spells on the executive and other committees.
Sue came along to quiz night on Friday, to say quiet cheerios to her many friends in the club, as she is moving down south, to be closer to her family. She was caught unawares by an impromptu presentation on behalf of the club, recognising her great service to the club.
The Largs SC Winter series is running again in 2018, with a revised format to give better more interesting racing. We are starting earlier, with the first start at 10:00, to give time for more races up to three per day depending on the weather.
