30 August 2021Regatta review
The Lochcarron regatta took place on Sunday 29th August, in beautiful sunshine and a strong easterly breeze. Davie Johnson brought Meridian over to be the committee boat, and host the race officer team of Lorna, Garry and Jane. Mitch, Luke and Jack crewed the rescue boats and kept an eye on the 9 boats taking part.
Sailing was very competitive and in the end only one point separated 1st and 2nd. Congratulations to winners Tristan and Andy, Matthew for 2nd place and Dave and Robbie for 3rd.

11 February 2021Ready for 2021
Lochcarron Sailing Club held it's AGM on the 10th February, and although we are currently locked down, the club is looking ahead to the 2021 sailing season. We hope to run more of our usual activities this year as well as a full season of sailing sessions, always as recommended by the RYA Covid guidelines.
New and returning members are very welcome. The prices have been frozen at 2018 levels. The club relies on memberships to meet it's running costs (insurance, chandlery, affiliation fees, electricity etc). We hope to see you at the club soon.
If possible, we hope to run regular Thursday and weekend sailing sessions, school sailing and try sailing days, training week (first week of the school summer holidays) training weekends with RYA coaches, the regatta, and hopefully the end of year laying up supper.
