New Captain’s welcome.

Following a very positive Scottish Branch AGM at Royal Gourock Yacht Club. I am pleased to have been “Elected “ as  Class Captain of the Scottish Branch.

Despite enough snow starting to lie on the hills around the Clyde to discourage sailing, there was sufficient interest and discussion at the AGM to allow the committee to start planning the 2018 events calendar. 

It was very heartening to talk to members old and new who were even now looking forward to the 2018 season.

I would like everyone to e-mail me with any event suggestions for the forthcoming season as I want to continue to build on the success that my predecessor Dorothy and her committee have had In making the Scottish Moody Owners Association Branch the presence it is on the Scottish sailing scene.

I look forward to meeting you on and off the water and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Guid New Year.
