Trip Reports

We did have a Meets Organiser in the early years but it quickly became a thankless chore! Mobile phones hadn't really taken off the way they have now - email wasn't quite as all-pervasive either. So the Meets Organiser position went unfilled for a considerable time - until now. The Meets Organiser is back, big time, so catch up on trips you may have missed here.

The forecast leading up to the weekend was very promising with double digits and hotter on the cards! In the event, it was very hot with lots of sunshine. This was the first of the two Forfar Sailing Club Open Days and the loch was very busy for both ourselves and the sailing club. The bacon rolls and soup went down very well too. As far as I can tell, enjoyed by everyone

River North Esk - Northwaterbridge to St Cyrus - 20 March 2016

The forecast leading up to the weekend was very promising with 13 degs and lots of sunshine – not quite that on the day, cloud cover at about 8/10 at one stage in early afternoon. Nonetheless, a good trip and as far as I can tell, enjoyed by everyone. Even the swimmers!

Image on its way!

Training for the 2 Star Award at Monikie Country Park. Brian kindly set aside a weekend to coach this 2 Star Award training session with participants Peter, Sandra, Brian, Linda, Penny and Morven. It was a windy weekend so we were allowed to paddle on the Island Pond and not the more exposed North Pond.

River Tay - Pitlochry to Birnam - 28 February 2016

Four paddlers on still waters as sunset approaches Brian has always been able to take a good picture!

15 paddlers in various crafts - open canoe, solo, doubles and triples, - river kayaks, - sit on top kayaks.  With the sun out, it was pleasant to ready our boats on the banks of the Tay at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre. After shuttling the cars to Birnam we were on the water by 11 am paddling under the suspension bridge with an entourage of folks watching.
