Very nice looking club, kids look fairly sharp too.

I'm guessing from the way everybody is dressed that the water is cold......... motivation!

Thanks... Yeah- 56 degrees north. You can't see in the video, because the hills are viewed from the south, but the mountains will still hold some snow, melting into the loch... Water temp a few degrees above freezing. Surface temp wasn't too bad with the weather they got that weekend.

Cheers,

RYA training course also running at the club in Wayfarers and Toppers... weather a LOT warmer this time. 

Cheers,

This week I am "doing" a youth camp with 420s (boo hiss....... but these kids are relatively new, to them the boats are difficult and exciting) and Topper Topaz Unos...... these have been fantastic little boats.

Our weather is bordering on too hot and definitely too thunderstormy. Got in a good day of sailing yesterday but it was a card toss and we were lucky.

Very Lucky, NIce to see the youngsters sailing, I must come for  a visit when I come up to see my parents (40 miles away).

Meanwhile our own lucky youngsters,  don't have Nessies little brother to avoid, something much more dangerous... tourists driving 45ft hire boats......

It’s hard for me to believe that people will pay me to teach them to sail.  Can’t think of a better job

X 2! Especially large classes of kids whose parents think it is day care... Good summer job for a student, though.
