Captain’s Welcome

As the Branch emerges from winter storage. We are beginning to get back to our normal cruising grounds mostly on the West Coast and in the Clyde area. The weather is releasing us from its icy grip and I am looking forward to some better sails on warmer days. Though we did have a fabulous (though cold) trip round the Mull of Kintyre back to Linnhe Marine at the end of April.

Look out for the musters and join in if you are in the area.

As you can see in the programme, we are meeting up with both the Irish and Irish Sea branches at Peel on the Isle of Man , please get in touch if you intend to join us (we need numbers for bookings).

If you see “Loose Cannon” out and about, call us and we will see if we can meet up.

I would like to encourage anyone who has not joined us at an event to come along and see what we are about. You will meet friendly, enthusiastic and hopefully likeminded people who just want to go sailing and enjoy themselves.

Dot Ramsay
