New Captain’s welcome.

Spring they say is upon us, so naturally a Moody owner’s mind turns to the coming sailing season. Our sailing programme for 2018 has, I hope, something for everyone. There are one or two changes from last year. The main one being the addition of an informal “follow the wind” mini cruise at the end of a muster. These cruises will be arranged on the Saturday night or Sunday morning subject to demand and suitable weather conditions.

I want the Moody Owners in Scotland to get the best out of their boats and to be able to enjoy sailing on what are widely acknowledged to be some of the best cruising waters in the world. So I encourage you to use our FaceBook page to keep in touch with what everyone is doing sailingwise and perhaps arrange impromptu mini musters or cruises.

If you are visiting Scotland on your Moody get in touch with me and come along to one of our events.

I hope you have a great sailing season and look forward to meeting you on the water, the pontoon or in the bar.

Fair winds and sunny skies!

Hamish Ramsay

Scottish Branch Captain.
