Tree felling over the winter
In a blustery week in December RTS and Treetec felled the Ash trees and the Scots Pine in the club grounds. While the ash dieback has been monitored by RTS for some years they advised that as the trees were infected they will also be susceptible to honey fungus in the roots which is unseen below ground so can cause unexpected failure of the tree. Sadly based on their advice the Committee took the decision to have them felled and they are currently deciding what replanting will take place.

RYA SCOTLAND SCOTTISH CLUB TROPHY
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.
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. For more photos please go to the 2019 gallery page.
