Mooring Raft Refurbishment July / August 2019.
For attention of all mooring holders.
The mooring raft has been re-decked and is now ready for use. A big thank you to Roger W for pulling the raft onto the beach (with his pick up!), and to Dave B for his help in the refurbishment.
A great morning's racing on the water!
The Keelboat Shoreline Challenge trophy race was well worth postponing to sail in such beaut conditions on the reserve day - Sat 7th Sept. Good fun was had by all both on and off the water - the addition of a Duffer's Golden Shackle prize had everyone sailing at the top of their game in order to avoid collecting this one - however someone had to be awarded it...... Colin and Mandy were the disputed winners! The celebratory glass of bubbly slipped down a treat over lunch. Thanks to Tommy & Zandra for organising and providing the trophies and bubbly. Next year it's intended to put the race back to it's Friday afternoon schedule and list it on the fixture list to help other keelboat & cruisers put it in their diary as a race to do.

Sunday 18th August
The 2019 Scottish Club Trophy was held at Loch Earn Sailing Club on Sunday 18th August.
There was also a coaching day on Saturday 17th August organised by RYA Scotland.
There was some fantastic racing in very breezy conditions - lots of spills and thrills!
Well done to all those who took part and a grateful thanks to all those who gave up their time to help in the preparations and over the weekend.
As a registered Royal Yachting Association Training Centre, coaching for all abilities is available at the club.
On scheduled weekends through the season we also provide morning sail coaching to members wishing to improve their abilities. As Loch Earn Sailing Club is run entirely by volunteers, unfortunately we cannot offer training or boat hire services to the public out with this.
There is also an intensive 5-day Training Week in July, open to both members and non-members. Application for places on our training week open from 1st May with application forms and full details appearing on the website around that time.
