www.rncyc.com Editor’s Note Once again welcome to the RNCYC Yearbook. Special thanks have to go to Chris Roddis for all the work he has done in making this book come together and to Neill Ross for all the photographs he has taken. Also thanks to Team Skandia for most of the youth photos. This year there are more member’s contributions which has to be good for the club.

elcome to a new season and a new Year Book – it all seems to come round more quickly every year! The year book is now in its third year of the “new” format, and has proved to be very successful in that we can (and do) send them all over the world to promote the Club at all levels. The coming sailing season has the normal racing and cruising attractions, all of which are listed elsewhere in this book, but the main attraction this year has to be the Sonar World and European Championships which are being held in August. We expect to see a number of overseas visitors for these events, and the whole exercise only helps to up the Club’s profile at all levels. Our own boats will of course all be participating, whether with their owners or under charter to visitors, which is, of course, how some people get over the problem of bringing their own boats. As has been noted before, the Sonar is not only an excellent training boat, but is also the designated boat for disabled sailing at the Olympics. With 2012 looming, it is hoped that a number of the disabled teams will make the journey north after the Sail for Gold regatta at Weymouth (which is the last one before the Olympics), and that they will help to swell our numbers.


Commodore’s Foreword

Our own use of the Sonars has of course increased over the years, and they are now a well established part of the Club scene, being used for both team and match racing, as well as training at all levels. All members are reminded that they are available for use both for racing, (some are available on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings) and in particular for corporate use for companies and organisations. As we go to press, the details of a new regatta to be run along the lines of the Commodore’s Cup, with invited teams of three boats participating in a weekend regatta, are being put together, and full details will be published in due course. This innovation promises to be a fun regatta, as well as being a chance for old friends to cross swords in a new and exciting series of races. We are not expecting any visitations this year from reciprocal Clubs, although several local Clubs will be using our facilities for the shore end of their cruise in company. The whole idea of reciprocal membership is one which some of our members have embraced with enthusiasm, but everyone should remember that while the Clubs on the list at the back of this publication welcome visits from our members, most prefer to know in advance if you are coming – a service which the office is happy to offer. Our Cruising programme was curtailed by the weather last year, but we will be attempting to carry out a similar programme this year, and perhaps the weather will relent, and let us have

some good days on those weekends. As our mooring field extends, there are more family cruising boats whose owners are members of the Club, and the revised programme should, hopefully, offer something for everyone. Our young International sailors are well reported elsewhere in this publication, but I must congratulate Luke Patience and Lorenzo Chiaravini on their achievements during the year, and we wish them, and the other Club members good luck for their regattas this year. Our moorings remain a major source of both income and members, and during last year, we installed a number of new ones. As the season approaches, it looks like we will be putting even more out, and it is great to see the anchorage returning to the size that it once was with an ever increasing number of boats there. Our caterers go from strength to strength, and this has meant that clubhouse usage has increased dramatically during the past year, and your social committee has been working hard on expanding the events available. Apart from the now traditional Friday nights in the bar, the innovative Sunday carvery lunches, and Saturday night fine dining have been most successful, with good numbers attending both. The Club’s reputation for catering is spreading, and the number of external functions is going up noticeably. Now, the perennial reminder – your clubhouse is available for weddings and all types of functions both to you, your relations and your friends, and it is one of the ways

that we can encourage extra income, but more, acquire new members. While the usage is increasing all the time, there is still room for many more functions – particularly weddings – so over to you. You will of course have seen that the replacement of the central heating was completed before the winter, and the cost benefits from this are now apparent after a full winter. We have now embarked on the next stage of the three year plan, and although much of that is cosmetic, the changes should be noticeable. Currently the proposed work on the gatehouse to bring it back into operation is under consideration, and this is taking up both time and money, and will be the major project during the year. We are also looking at the provision of a new disabled access which hopefully will be in operation by the time the Sonar Championships happen in August Finally I hope that the coming season is fine, and that you will have good sailing, fair winds, and most of all excellent company.

Club Membership & Services GUESTS

TEMPORARY MEMBERSHIP

SPECIAL MOORING MEMBERSHIP

The Club Rules allow Members to introduce their guests to the Club. Guests must be signed-in by the introducing Member (for which purpose Visitors Books are provided in Inismara and the Bar Foyer). Guests are not permitted to purchase excisable liquor. Members are responsible for their guests’ behaviour and for their observance of the Club rules. While guests are always welcome, your Committee has indicated that frequent use of this facility for the same individual is not in the spirit of the Rule, and Members are asked to consider if it would be appropriate to propose membership to suitable candidates.

Temporary membership is available to:

Special mooring membership is available for one season only and includes the cost of a mooring, use of the Club launch service, six months membership and £50 in vouchers to be used in the bar. Such membership extends for the period of 1st April to 30th September in any year. Current rates are listed on the opposite page.

OFFICE SERVICES

The Club Office is open Monday to Friday and is permanently manned from 0900 to 1500. Outside these hours the office telephone line is re-routed to the Bar, when this is open, and then to an answer phone. Belinda Doherty is the Office Manager, with Jennifer Payne responsible for Admin and Accounts. Photocopying and Fax facilities are available to Members upon appropriate repayment. There will be photographs of events on our website. If you do not wish your picture to appear, please contact the Office.

1. Yachtsmen of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. 2. Yachtsmen visiting the Clyde, or temporarily in this area, providing they are members of a recognised yacht club. 3. Persons distinguished for service in public affairs, while visiting the Clyde. Spouses of any of the persons mentioned above may also be similarly admitted. A subscription of one-twelfth of the Ordinary membership is payable (monthly in advance). TEMPORARY SAILING MEMBERSHIP

Temporary Sailing Membership is available to persons who have been invited to sail as crew on a Member’s yacht. Candidates must be proposed by the yacht owner and seconded by a member of the Sailing Committee. Such membership extends for the period of 1st April to 31st October in any year. Temporary Sailing Members are liable for a subscription equivalent to 25% of the current Ordinary Inport subscription relative to their age. This class of membership was introduced to give seasonal visitors an opportunity of contributing to the Club.

WINTER MEMBERSHIP

For those in the local community who are not sailors but who are looking for a quiet and discrete place to enjoy a drink or a meal on dark winter nights when seasonal outdoor activity is not possible, the clubhouse provides a comfortable and welcoming setting for lunch, weekend dining or just sitting by the fire with a coffee and the newspapers. Those with an interest in local history might find a lecture to suit or enjoy the regular reels evenings, bridge club, computer and Pilates classes. Many local organisations already hold regular events at the Club and winter membership provides an opportunity for those attending to extend their use of the clubhouse and its amenities.

Club Membership & Services Members are encouraged to introduce friends as applicants for membership. This is an important aspect of the life of the Club as it is the route by which we maintain a vibrant membership base. An application form and current subscription rates are available from the Club Office and the Bar and you are encouraged to use this to bring new Members, with their new ideas and enthusiasm, into the Club. The subscription structure is detailed below and illustrates the categories of Ordinary Membership which are Inport (mainland Scotland), Outport A (Great Britain (excluding mainland Scotland) and Outport B (overseas). Cadet, Student and Family rates offer attractive reductions on the Ordinary Member subscription. To encourage membership from companies and organisations, Corporate and Student Group categories are also available. There is currently no Entrance Fee.

Social Scene Elma Henry, who has dedicated many years as the Club’s “Honorary Cup Bearer” retired to move South. Every year at the Club’s annual prize giving, Elma excelled herself in displaying so much of the Club’s silverware.

In December, about 40 of the Club’s lady members gathered for a Christmas lunch. Some husbands suggested, in these days of equality, there should be a men’s Christmas get together in the bar!

In February, David du Boulay organised a demonstration of splicing and rope work by Anto Stotts from English Braids. this was followed up by a practical demonstration from John Mullen, seen here showing some members how to do an eye splice. Can’t remember who brought in his mooring pickup which he thought went a bit wrong.

RSAC R ALLY The Club was once again asked to host the annual “Three Lochs Classic” outing. The Club caterers provided an excellent lunch and although the weather was dry, we were not treated to the previous year’s brilliant sunshine. 14


Robin Knox- Johnston gave us a very good and entertaining evening recounting many of his experiences over the last 40 years. The evening was sponsored by Benromach Distillers, to raise money for the Sonar World Championships. At the end of the talk, Robin was happy to sign copies of his books.

The RNCYC is a superb wedding venue and can also boast a magic tree! A year after the Club hosted the reception of James Cowie and Lesley Millar people are still talking about the lighting which enhanced what was already a perfect summer wedding. After drinks on the terrace and an excellent meal, dusk fell to reveal wonderful lighting effects inside the Club’s marquee and magically, outside in their extensive gardens. Nature provided the rest. As the sun set the photographer took an award winning picture of the couple on the pier silhouetted against the Arrochar Alps.

15


Social Scene

The Winter Ball was held in the marquee and throughout the clubhouse in early December. The snow was very thick around the marquee, but inside all was very warm, thanks to the heating sponsored by GSS. We were well fed with a beautifully presented meal, and entertained by a display of Piping in the marquee and the Jiggers Ceilidh band in the main clubroom.

Last June saw the wedding of Gordon Tourlamain to Elizabeth Kelly. The bride and groom entertained their guests in the marquee on the lawn. Liz had a “hen” lunch party in “Curachan” a couple of weeks before the wedding.

Before the new season gets going our new web site will be up and running. This has taken longer to bring to fruition than hoped and is long overdue – but it will be worth the wait. We will of course have all the usual stuff on there including the sailing and social programmes, results etc but the big difference is that it will be regularly updated with reports and programme updates. The latest updates will be automatically highlighted on the home page so there will be no need to go hunting for new information and articles. Members are encouraged to share their experiences and photos. Please send anything that you think might be of interest to the wider membership in to the office. For those of you who lament the omission of the membership list from the yearbook there will be a password protected area on the web site where the full list will be available. It is expected that the first few months will be rather evolutionary and more information will be added. We want the web site to reflect the membership and to be a source of useful information for the wider yachting fraternity so if you have ideas that you think might improve it, please let us know.

Archivist’s Report 2011 Club History

During November we held an evening talk on Club History, presented jointly by the Archivist and Hon Cup Bearer, Elma Henry. Illustrated by material from the archive and private collections, the Archivist gave an account of the very earliest beginnings of organised yachting in the Northern Groups, being Scottish and Irish regions, and traced the origins of both RNYC and RCYC leading of course to our present RNCYC. Members were interested to note we have a member (also present) who is related to one of the founding Northern Group members of 1824. Elma described a number of fine trophies and artfacts of silver which are not often displayed. Similarly certain archive items were examined with interest. These included very early membership and minute books, and the ballot box for new members by which, infamously, applicants could be “blackballed”! Valuation and Sale of Archive Items

During the past year we carried out an audit and valuation of the major items in the archive. These included photographs, photographic albums, and historical books which were held in the library. Also we reviewed our large collection of yachting journals, some being runs from the very earliest issues. These journals were of considerable bulk and, being in attic storage, were not enjoying ideal conditions for preservation. Though much of this has been a delight to own and peruse from time to time, a large proportion was only very rarely read by members and all the while subject to deterioration due to the wide variation in temperature and humidity in the roof space. In view of this the General Committee decided to sell a proportion of such items and a most useful sum was realised to support clubhouse maintenance. Members may be assured that we have retained all membership records and archival material having a direct connection with the club members and yachts, and generally with Club history. Also we have retained our collection of Lloyd’s Yacht Registers which remain in the bookcase in Curachan. 18

The history of the 20th century traced the movements of the respective sailing headquarters of the two constituent clubs, noting the momentous move to our present clubhouse in 1937. Members noted the development of one design sailing and in particular the adoption of the numerous classes for Gareloch and East Patch racing, over seventy years. Club history for RNYC is well presented in Hugh Somerville’s booklet (available from the office for a small donation) and for RCYC, the book “Cruise in Company” which can be borrowed from the archive.


Archivist’s Report 2011 The Clyde 19/24 Feet Class

Some members may recall the delightful yacht models which were on display during the “Eights” regatta of 2007. These large scale sailing models were the work of Gisella and Helmut Scharbaum who are our most enthusiastic club visitors from Germany. Also their special interest is the Clyde 19/24 Feet Class, constituted in 1897. A total of 26 yachts were built to Class rules between formation of the class and 1904. The Scharbaum’s favoured yacht for modelling was the first Tringa, of Fife design and built in 1899 for the Teacher family. They have moved on some way from quarter scale sailing models to the completion last year of a new full size Tringa. She was launched at Kappeln on the Schlei, a long narrow bay open to the Baltic. This year they hope to extend their cruising in these waters. The lines for the new Tringa were relofted by a naval architect, from old published records and the application of the Class rules. Offsets from the lines were digitised and shapes for the building moulds were formed by computer controlled water-jet cutters. The hull is constructed from cedar strip planking and is epoxy sheathed. As may be seen from the photographs, the workmanship is of exceptional quality. The Scharbaums are delighted with her performance and must be congratulated on the outcome of their project. It is also a great tribute to the Scottish designers and yachtsmen of these times.

Visits from the Media

During February we received two visits from the media to assist with programmes being prepared for BBC Television and BBC Radio Scotland. A film-maker was researching material for the BBC Series Grand Tours of Scotland. The theme will be Sailing on the Firth of Clyde and the producer and presenter were very interested in our clubhouse and in particular our Victorian photographs. Also they may arrange a follow-up to visit the yacht Camilla, owned by Bill Inglis. Radio Scotland are researching their programme “Digging up your Roots”. The interviewer was accompanied by a “Listener” who’s roots were being examined. His grandfather crewed on Thistle, the America’s Cup RCYC challenger of1887 and he was anxious to know if we had any membership records. His grandfather was unlikely to have been a member. However we were able to show our visitors the model of Thistle and also the log book of the voyage, to America and return to the Clyde. Intriguingly it seems that his grandfather continued to be engaged as a crew member even after the yacht was sold to Kaiser Wilhelm. Ian Broadley Hon Archivist 19


Sailing Report confidence. Having a good race officer makes racing enjoyable for everyone.

As a yacht club we aim to involve as many sailing members as possible in the sailing activities of the Club. Last year we welcomed members of the Royal Thames to compete for the Millennium Bowl, which was won by the RNCYC, lead by team captain Allan Manuel. This is a biennial event and in 2012 will be held at the Royal Thames. Likewise the Commodores International Cup, which in 2011 was due to take place at the Seawanhaka Yacht Club in Long Island Sound and to which the Club planned to send a team, however owing to conflicting commitments we have requested it be postponed for a year until 2012. Towards the end of the season the Royal Forth are invited to send a team to sail in Sonars to compete for the Barge Cup. Last year this annual event, which took place on the Forth, was won by the host club so the RNCYC team is keen to bring the cup back to the Clyde in 2011. Before the start of the season the Club is running a Club Race Officer course and would like to invite all those who are going to be race officers during the course of the coming season to attend. The main purpose course is to help those who only do the duty once a year to refresh guidance and build 20

On 7 May there is a training day to which all club sailors are invited to learn the basics of using a Rib or improve your driving skills, practice Man Overboard drills and the art of picking up a mooring, or anything else that may be of help to you. Do come along and meet up with sailors from other classes, exchange ideas and enjoy a chat over a drink and lunch in the Club. Tuesday night racing with the Gareloch, Piper and Sonar classes starts in the Gareloch on 26 April and runs until the 30 August. This year we are hoping to see more Pipers on the water. As usual all the classes are always on the look out for crew and to help in the process a notice will be posted on the board in the rear corridor advertising either those looking for crew or those available and wishing to race. Similarly, young sailors wishing to sail keel boats, either for the first time, or for more experience should also come along on a Tuesday night as the Sonar class is once again planning to encourage young sailors to take part for the first series of the year. The RNCYC is very proud to have a number of young sailors in our Club who participate in international and national events. Consequently we are always keen to encourage young people who are interested in sailing to come along and take part at whatever level interests

them. The Club owns both Optimists and Fevas and youngsters are encouraged to get in contact and arrange to use them. The Gareloch Class continues to be very active, racing on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. The Gareloch Class ‘Worlds’ is planned in July and the dog race is in early September and continuing the tradition of regular competition with other clubs the class team plans to visit the Mersey Mylne class in July. Racing on the East Patch starts on Sunday 10 April and Wednesday night racing starts on 20 April. Two new series will be run for the Sonar class from April until the end of June. Many of the larger boats in the Club will join with boats from other clubs for both IRC and handicap racing.


The very successful two-boat team racing event, which was held for the first time in 2010 will be repeated again on 18 and 19 June. The event will be held in Sonars when our own winning team will endeavor to successfully defend their title. The Club has issued invitations to several clubs on the Clyde to join them on 8 May to race in Sonars, for fleet and possibly friendly team racing. Hopefully this event will enable us to visit other clubs and compete in their boats as well as bring together like-minded people from around the Clyde. Instead of a formal regatta a “Fun day of sailing” is planned for the 2 July when we hope that members and friends with boats of all classes and sizes will come together and enjoy the simple pleasure of a day’s sailing and a party to follow. This year the Club plays host to both the Sonar European and World Championships in August. This international event is expected to attract a number of competitors and visitors from oversees and will naturally require an army of Club volunteers to help with the organization and running of the event. As well as an opportunity to show off the Club at its best this event will give members a chance to meet sailors from other clubs and countries.

Sonars Looking Ahead to the Sonar World Championships

It was five years ago that the original idea on hosting a Sonar World Championships in Scotland was conceived and now the year of the event has finally arrived. We are now a matter of months away from the Sonar World and European Championships being hosted by the RNCYC in August. With the winter all but over the owners have turned their attention to preparing their boats for the water. This year it is a serious job with both the World and European championships as we want to put up a good fight for all the visitors that have confirmed they will be attending the event. Confirmed attendance at the event include last year’s world champion Dave Franzel who narrowly beat Jud Smith (top Etchells sailor) to the title. Also we have another previous class world champion Steve Shepstone, together with other strong entrants from the US, including a number of our friends from Seawanhaka Yacht Club and the boats designer Bruce Kirby. Although Bruce is now in his eighties he is still a very active member of the class, competing in the last World Championship at Noroton. Flying the flag for the RNCYC and the UK we have four previous national champions including Andy Cassell , a paralympic Gold Medallist.  For me this is the first major event that I have been involved in and the effort that goes into the organisation is huge, there are so may things that you take for granted when you turn up at an event and race. The race committee to organise, the Jury to organise the measurement committee to organise and all of these people have to come from different parts of the World to ensure impartiality, arranging accommodation, arranging charter boats and so the list goes on. A huge thanks must go out at this point to those who have said they will help and those who have helped already, it really is a huge task to organise an event like this. We are still looking for help on various issues so if you would like to get involved in any way then please just drop a line to the office. The events themselves are shaping up nicely with upwards of 17 boats confirmed for both events and the potential for some 40 boats attending, so the on water activity is going to be both fun to watch and to race. Meanwhile, ashore we are looking forward to a great social programme starting with Welcome Drinks on Thursday 18th August at the Club and culminating with a prize giving dinner at the end of the Worlds on Saturday 27th August. Do come along and get involved and if you fancy your chances or just want to race in a World Championships then there are a couple of the Club Sonars available for use. If you are interested then please contact Jock Fleming for further details. Ewan Mackay 23

East Patch R acing Committee The East Patch Racing Committee (EPRC) was formed jointly by Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club (RNCYC) and Helensburgh Sailing Club (HSC) to administer yacht racing off Helensburgh. Dinghy racing was not included in its remit. Committee Functions

EPRC is responsible for setting courses and allocating classes for yacht racing on the East Patch, and formulates rules for racing around these courses and modifies any RYA and IYRU rules as appropriate. It provides materials to build marks or have marks constructed as required. It is responsible for mark maintenance and positioning. EPRC liaises with CYCA and CPA for permission to lay racing marks and lays and recovers marks as required. The Committee sets race entry fees at a level which will cover all its costs. It determines the contribution required from other Clubs and Associations who use EPRC marks and backing arrangements, and requires to approve their entry fees if that organisation’s regatta forms part of an East Patch Series. HSC assumes responsibility for the labour content of making and maintaining marks. Materials required are purchased from EPRC funds. RNCYC carries out the administrative duties for EPRC.

30

EPRC appoints Race Officers to run each race. A duty list is sent out prior to the season opening and a reminder sent two weeks before duty is required. Both RNCYC and HSC maintain separate race bags, complete with signal flags, sound signals, course boards, triatic stay and any other equipment specified by EPRC as necessary equipment for EP Race Officer Duty. EPRC appoints Protest Committee Chairmen for each week during the season. A duty list is sent out prior to the season opening and a reminder sent two weeks before duty is required. EPRC arranges to hold an annual prizegiving at one or other of the founding Clubs.

Club Sailors 2011

Luke Patience Report on my 2010 season in the 470 Class with my crew Stuart Bithell Results May 2010 - WC Holland Regatta 8th World Ranking 14th July 2010 - World Champs Holland 8th (winning the series going into the last races before my rudder broke) World Ranking 8th August 2010 - WC Sail for Gold Regatta (teamed up as pre Olympic test event) Bronze September 2010 - European Champs Istanbul Bronze World Ranking 4th October 2010 - British Ranking Series 1st November 2010 - Perth international Regatta (pre worlds) Bronze January 2011 - WC Miami OCR Bronze 36

The 2010 season has been a fantastic stepping stone for me and Stuart getting closer to Olympic selection and keeping us well on track for our goal which is, of course, an Olympic medal in 2012. The year started off a little disappointingly, finishing the first 3 World Cup regattas well outside our potential and far from where we had planned to be at that point. We had a good long hard think in April about why we were under achieving and how to turn it around and get back on track. We prepared a very specific strategy to do this and sought the assistance of a coach with the experience and qualities we needed. The only man for the job was, Callum MacDonald, also an RNCYC member. All three of us were critical in all aspects of our campaign to battle our way back to the top of the world fleet. Come July we were off to the World Champs in Holland feeling good and confident. Going into the second last race we had taken the yellow jersey off the Aussies when disaster struck and our rudder stock sheared off the back of the boat. We missed the last two races to finish 8th overall. It hurt, but that’s sport so we took it on the chin. We finished the last three events on a high and ended the season being the only boat in the world to win a medal at every event and also wearing the yellow jersey for more days over those three regattas than anyone, a statistic that we take great confidence from. Having started the 2011 with another medal we are on the home straight now for Olympic selection and just need to keep our position of top British boat and be consistent world medallists into the trials. 2010 was an enlightening year and we hope to turn those bronze medals into golds this year leading the fleet leading into The 2012 Olympic Games.

LORENZO CHIAVARINI

ALISTAIR GR AY

Lorenzo is still sailing a Laser Radial, training hard with the RYA GBR National Youth Squad. He was selected to sail in both the Men’s and Youth’s World Radial Championhips which was held in home waters, at Largs, last summer. His results were second best in the GBR National Squad sailors with 2nd European under 19 and 6th under 19 in the World. In June he took part in the Yvonne Armstrong Trophy which is raced in Garelochs and took the trophy back to Lomond School.

At the start of last year Alistair was sailing in an Optimist, having obtained a ranking of 16 in the UK selection trials, he represented Britain in both Belgium and at the French Nationals. He finished top British sailor in the Gold Fleet on Lake Garda.

He continues to study hard during the week and travels south for training in the GBR National Squads. He was selected to take part in the Australian Youth Championships in Sydney where he finished 4th after a very good series of races. He is working hard to ensure a place in the GBR team for the World Championships to be staged at La Rochelle, France when he is hoping to qualify for both the Men’s and Youth’s Championships. The RYA Youth National Trials will be hosted by Hayling Island in April and we wish him good luck as it is important for both Youth World and ISAF selection. From June Lorenzo will be free to dedicate himself to full time sailing. He is hoping to gain the required weight to enable him to progress to a standard rig, the Olympic class. Sail for Gold in Weymouth would be an ideal opportunity to sail in a new fleet. Having more time will enable him to train and race with the GBR National Youth Squad and for selection in the Olympic Development Squad.

He moved to the 420 class during the year and, with his crew Alan McIntosh, won the 420 Scottish Traveller circuit and was 2nd at the Scottish Championships. He was selected for the Scottish 420 squad and the GBR 420 transitional squad. He is relishing the challenge of the new boat and enjoying the opportunity to compete against a group of older and more experienced sailors. His aim is to finish as high as possible in the Nationals, European qualifiers and Youth Championships. Some might say that he is now in shark infested waters!

Sailing in Thailand last year with his Laser 4.7 in the World Championships , Ross finished 19th under 16 and 7th European. The summer saw him competing as a member of the GBR team in the European Championships in France. He finished 32nd overall in the bronze fleet and 5th British sailor from the combined entry of 232 boys. The National Laser 4.7 championships were held in Cornwall during last summer, Ross finished 5th overall.

Katherine was the 4.7 Laser Ladies National Champion and has used her experience to help her brother by being the coach for the GBR team at the World Championship in Thailand last year. She has now moved to Australia where she works as a coach and instructor at The Boatshed, Albert Park Lake Melbourne and has been appointed the head Optimist sailing coach for Yachting Victoria.

This winter has seen Ross move to a Laser Radial and he is now a member of the Scottish National Laser Radial Squad, training hard and enjoying the competition in his new boat.

In her spare time she is crewing on a Sydney 38 and a Beneteau 41 out of Sandringham Yacht Club, Melbourne.

CHARLOTTE DOBSON The highlight of Charlotte’s year was her first medal at a world cup event, being the Silver Medallist in Hyere. She then followed on to being the Silver Medallist at the European Championships. She had a disappointing worlds in Largs, but then was 4th at the big event in Perth Australia where the Olympic country qualifications will be in December this year. She achieved her top world ranking, being third in the world ranking series.


Club Sailors 2011

ANNA BURNET Last year Anna and her crew Flora Stewart started the year sailing a 420, they put in a good performance at the Spring Championships in Pwllheli where they finished 2nd girls and 7th overall. This secured them a place in the 420 Ladies team which travelled in Haifa, Israel. Haifa was expected to provide light Mediterrannean conditions, but, in the qualifying series they had a good breeze which put them in a good position going into the gold fleet, they had won 2 of the 6 races. Unfortunately the last couple of days saw light and shifty conditions which were not in their favour. They finished the event in 18th place, not as high as they had originally hoped but with the knowledge that they were the best in the breeze! In October the pair moved to the 470 class and are training hard down in Weymouth as much as possible. They have been invited to train at the Olympic Development Squad training camps. This year they will be competing in the spring series in Weymouth and then to Palma for their first international regatta in the 470. Anna is now attending Southampton University, so is well placed to train at Weymouth. They plan to take part in a World Cup event in Hyres, France before the Sail for Gold in Weymouth in June. Over the summer they will going to both Junior Europeans and Junior Worlds in Holland and Belgium. This year and next will be tough for them as they are new to the 470 and the competition will be fierce with the Olympic trials and the Games themselves. As Anna says ‘competing against the very best 470 sailors will be a great learning experience for us’. Good luck girls.

Team/Match R acing at RNCYC

Team and Match racing continues to grow at the RNCYC. In the last year the RNCYC competed in three team racing events, hosting one. The first major team racing event was the weekend of the 26/27th of June, which saw the inaugural two boat team racing cup being hosted by the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club (RNCYC) and sailed in the clubs fleet of Sonars. There was an excellent turnout with six teams attending the event. The standard of the teams entered was extremely high, with the current British Uni champions Edinburgh University and a couple of world championship winners present in the teams, as well as some of the usual suspects from around Scotland. The format of the event consisted of two round robins to be held over the two days, with each team having ten races to get their shot at glory. The event was won by RNCYC1, with Allan Manual and Nicole McPherson helming. Congratulations were given to the RNCYC for organising such a fantastic event, which will now surely find itself embedded in the sailing calendar for this coming year. Also, as team racing continues to grow, hopefully more clubs will see the benefits of owning a fleet of boats such as Sonars. The advantages of having an event with the boats already there for the competitors are plain to see.

The Club contested the Barge Cup against the Royal Forth YC in their Hunter 707’s, narrowly losing in the final race of the series. The Club also sent a team down the Royal Thames YC’s Carmela Cup where they finished a respectable fifth out of eight and were only one win away from finishing in third place. This year the Club will be continuing the Friday nights, as we have some exciting events coming up this year. The Club will be once again be hosting the RNCYC two boat team racing cup at the end of June, as well as hosting the Barge Cup versus the Royal Forth YC. The club also hopes to attend Millennium Bowl and the Carmela Cup once again. Griogair Whyte

Magr athea Heads West Our original Magrathea (Oyster 56) returned from the Caribbean in summer 2009 and performed her valedictory tour of the West Coast of Scotland (including a visit to Rhu and the RNCYC). A final trip through the Caledonian Canal and a dull transit down the east coast of England to Ipswich to her new owner ended the first chapter in our ownership of these impressive yachts. Early November saw the delivery of our new, improved, and much larger Magrathea (Oyster 72). The weather gods were not however impressed. Our attempt to go West (young man!) were continually thwarted by the appalling weather in the UK. That at least is our explanation for the numerous farewell parties that we hosted aboard as we made our way tortuously from Essex all the way around the coast to Plymouth from where we eventually made our final departure. Finally we made landfall in Antigua in January 2010. Crossing the Atlantic is of course not something to trifle about but it has to be said that big Oyster yachts take this sort of thing in their stride. We did not suffer any serious breakages (apart from a couple of wine glasses) and the most traumatic parts of the trip were some of the dreadful jokes cracked by the skipper in periods of calm weather. We had by now discovered that our new boat was a cut well above the previous version of Magrathea. Though hardly up to AC45 standards she is a much more modern design than the 56 – and hence is disproportionately faster than the simple 72 v 56 comparison would suggest. Suddenly our various trips around the Caribbean became much more appealing since we could arrive at an attractive lunch location comfortably before Beer O’clock with plenty of time for a swim before opening the whisky locker. And so on to the BVI to participate in the Oyster Caribbean Regatta. We had won our class in this event the year before but now we were in amongst the big boys. (Fortunately not including Mirabella 5 or Maltese Falcon). We got off to a good start on the first day by dipping our ensign at sunset much to the approval of Howard Morrison who was racing with friends and had spotted our burgee. We are not really racing types (with apologies to all RNCYC member reading this) but with the assistance of our crew from Burnham we did manage to get into the spirit of things. A series 42


of very close races over four days put us neck and neck with a similar boat crewed by some very rugged Polish types. A downwind start on the penultimate day generated the most excitement. Magrathea was the only yacht to hoist her asymmetric crossing the line. It was not entirely appropriate for the crew of the committee boat to shout “Go Magrathea” as we scraped paint off their starboard quarter but we almost got our comeuppance as a few boats carrying white sails only luffed us. Our prize for the “Best Broach of the Regatta” is treasured in my study as I write. On the last day we were rescued by an outstanding performance by another yacht – beating our rivals into second place and leaving us winners of the whole event by the narrowest margin. We were thereby introduced to the tradition of delivery a victory cup of champagne to the whole fleet. Fresh from her victory Magrathea moved north via Bermuda to New York. Over many years sailing on the West Coast of Scotland I have experienced the worry of sharply rising sea beds – but nothing to compare with the worry of motoring under the 8 bridges that cross New York’s East river and hoping that our 30 metres of air draft would not cause a problem. We motored on past Long Island and the Hamptons to Newport Rhode Island – home of the New York Yacht Club and particularly ferocious biting insects. Some gentle pursuit racing in the Oyster New England Rendezvous did not produce another victory for Magrathea but we did see plenty of two of the local attractions – lobsters and fog. Racing in the fog was slow of course but more taxing was trying to identify when we had crossed the finishing line with visibility

velocity and quantity of water that comes down – but fortunately it stops fairly quickly and is often followed by sunshine.

only 20 metres. We visited Cuttyhunk (where they were giving away lobsters), Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and discovered for the first time the exquisite charm and tangled history of these very early US settlements. Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard was our favourite and looked like a perfect Hollywood set though it is real and dates in parts back to the mid 17th century. Magrathea then turned north, passing Cape Cod and Boston and basing herself in Camden Maine for July and August. This really is reminiscent of the West Coast of Scotland. Numerous islands dotted everywhere the eye can see, wooded hillsides plunging into the shoreline, narrow channels between islands that suddenly open up to huge open bays, seal colonies sunning themselves on rocky islets uncovered by the tide, and everywhere surrounded by dark cool water (there is no Gulf Stream up there). There are rather more small villages and towns, all with those characteristic white painted board houses, and boats – but the place is so vast it still seems almost empty. Fog is pervasive, even though we managed to miss most of it, and as a result there are (it feels like) hundreds of lighthouses dotted across the landscape. And the rest of the weather? When the rain comes you’ll wish you were on a wet weekend break in Cornwall. Nothing prepares you for the

We explored the bay and its islands then moved across to Mount Desert Island which forms the bulk of the Arcadia National Park. We missed joining President Obama there (and his security detail) by a day – probably excellent planning! The unforgettable element though? The lobster pots: thousands upon thousands of them all in different colours and strewn across every piece of water rather like an irate child emptying his play box. Sailing was occasionally impossible until a local told us it was fine to sail over them. With fingers crossed we took the advice and never caught a pot - or a lobster either. Finally Magrathea had enough of lobster pots, islands and lighthouses and returned to Camden for end season maintenance work. She survived the scare of Hurricane Earl brushing the Maine coast and looking polished and fresh she set sail south for her next spell in the Caribbean sun. Chris Shea

Charitable Trust

A donation was also made recently to Natalie McWilliams a 15-yearold schoolgirl who is rapidly gaining a national reputation as one of the UK leading windsurfers being the first girl to finish in the 2010 UK Windsurfing Association Inland Series. Currently training to improve further in the 7.8 girl fleet, the donation has been made to assist her in her preparations and participation in the world championships in San Francisco this summer. Natalie, who lives in Hamilton, recently visited the RNCYC with her parents to thank the Charitable Trust for their generous support. We look forward to hearing more of Natalie’s continuing success.

The RNCYC Charitable Trust was established in 2003. It the aims, which are set out in the governing document can be summarised as the advancement of the education of the public in knowledge and practice of seamanship and sailing, the provision of equipment to do so, particularly the young, and the preservation of significant nautical property and records. The Trust continues to be well supported by Club members whose generous donations, for which we additionally claim gift aid, allow the Trust to pursue its charitable aims. Activities over the past year have included providing access to sailing and training for youngsters through the Club’s fleet of jointly owned Sonar yachts and a donation was made to the separate RNCYC Sonar Project Account to help with maintenance and equipment of the boats. In addition, donations were given to young sailors in various RYA squads to help defray the cost of training and competition, these included Anna Burnett, Ross Stanley-Whyte and Lorenzo Chiavarini. A donation was given to Nikki Stewart to help towards the cost of completing the Sailing Coach Assessor course. One of only four in Scotland to be selected for the course, Nikki is now qualified to run instructor training for both dinghy and keelboat instructors. She is hoping to run alternate training classes at the RNCYC and Helensburgh Sailing Club. 44

The Trust has, until recently, continued to maintain the Piper One Design yacht Mealista, which was generously bequeathed to the Trust by David Watson in 2003 for the benefit of youngsters wishing to gain experience of keel boat sailing. This has now been sold to Alan Armstrong who we hope to see as a regular participant at Tuesday night racing on the Gareloch. Chris Roddis, Hon Secretary

CCC Centenary Cruise. July 2010

The Clyde Cruising Club, although formed in the autumn of 1909, did not have its first official season until 1910. To celebrate this auspicious occasion the CCC laid on a cruise in the waters of the West of Scotland from the Sound of Luing to the Outer Hebrides. During the cruise there were several well attended, organised musters and many smaller musters of similar minded members in diverse anchorages. It was a wonderful sight, on Sunday 18th of July, to round the point of Eilean Mhic Chrion and see the yachts, in Ardfern Marina, dressed overall, with their array of burgees and ensigns and the weather, which had not been great, improving as the day went on. The plan was then to register for the cruise and, with anticipation, look forward to meeting friends and fellow members sampling the Taste of Argyll Barbecue. The food at the Barbecue was excellent, fortunately the rain stayed off and the midges did not appear, as the queuing, length and speed was to be seen to be believed. More than one hundred and seventy five yachts were destined to take part, many yachts from the invited clubs the Cruising Club of America, the Irish Cruising Club, the Ocean Cruising Club, the Royal Cruising Club and the Royal Highland Yacht Club, and many from other yacht clubs including the Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club. The official start of the cruise was at Ardfern Marina. Yachts were arriving at Ardfern, racing from Inverkip, as part of the Tobermory Race, or cruising from their home port. Members were arriving there from many parts of the world, as far afield as New Zealand, Australia America, Canada and of course Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. 46


CCC Centenary Cruise. July 2010 From Loch Drumbuie, with deteriorating weather, there were four free days to get to Vatersay. At this stage the yachts went there different ways, some as far as St Kilda, some to the Small Isles, Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna, some to Skye, others to Coll and Tiree. The weather during these four days was very mixed, Wednesday - north east moderate, with misty rain , Thursday - north east fresh - overcast, Friday - southerly light - sunny, Saturday - southerly moderate - wet and misty.

The next morning, Monday 19th July, dawned misty with a moderate west south west breeze. There was an option to either race, second half of the Tobermory Race, or cruise north towards Loch Drumbuie. Many went to Tobermory where the day improved to a lovely evening. Tuesday 20th July again dawned cloudy with showers and a light south westerly wind. The yachts started to converge on Loch Drumbuie for the Sunflower Raft, where records were hoped to be broken by rafting up more than two hundred yachts. The raft up started with a two hundred metre diameter circle with larger yachts at the cardinal and sub-cardinal points. The yachts started rafting up, the weather improved and the wind dropped, and the Sunflower was all but finished by 1600 hrs with improving weather producing a beautiful evening. Although the record was not broken one hundred and eighty four yachts participated and produced a sight never to be forgotten. The feeling was that the weather and weather forecast had put many smaller yachts off.

Sunday 25th July, Beach Barbecue, Vatersay, the possible highlight of the cruise. The day dawned bright and the yachts started to muster in the morning in anticipation of the light up at 1215. The weather remained perfect and the skippers and crews mingled on the beach. What a magnificent barbecue, there were plenty of outlets and more Dublin Bay Prawns, steaks and all the accoutrements, including wine, that turn a barbecue into a feast. The party went on well into the night and I am sure everyone had a most memorable day. The next three days were free cruising to Loch Spelve where a mussel supper was to be hosted by the Royal Highland Yacht Club. Yachts again cruised the local waters, some staying in the outer isles before crossing the Minch to Tiree, Coll or Iona, others crossing on Monday. The weather was again mixed, but good winds for sailing. On Thursday 29th July Loch Spelve was the venue for another splendid function, the Mussel Supper. The Mussels were beautifully cooked and there was a varied menu which pleased all. The next day, Friday 30th July was cloudy but dry, good for July in the West Coast of Scotland. The Cruise Celebration Dinner took place at Oban Marina, Kerrera. This commenced with a whisky tasting, a prize giving and a word from the visiting club commodores. The dinner was well organised, and the food was not only plentiful, but delicious. There is no doubt that the Centenary Cruise was a great success, despite the mixed weather, and I am sure the five hundred or so people who participated will remember it for years to come.

To The Edge And Back

It wasn’t the most enjoyable of starts to our CCC Centenary Cruise on Friday 16th July, as we made our way to Ardrishaig in strong winds and large waves. A F8 round Ardlamont Point isn’t much fun! An uneventful passage through the Crinan Canal, and a great sail in the afternoon sun, got us up to Ardfern the next day, and the rest of the weekend was spent celebrating the Centenary there. It was a dreich, misty Monday morning as we cruised in company to Tobermory ahead of the racing fleet, sailing and motor-sailing through the Dorus Mor and up the Sound Of Mull, with the weather improving steadily. On the Tuesday we joined in the CCC sunflower at Loch Drumbuie. The sun came out and a glorious afternoon and evening ensued, culminating in a spectacular sunset. After listening to the forecast on the Wednesday morning, we headed for Coll. The wind was up to 30kts, and we had a very fast passage, arriving mid 48

afternoon. Thursday dawned brighter, with the Outer Hebrides beckoning us across the sparkling Minch to Castlebay in perfect sailing conditions. We powered along well at 7-8kts on a close reach, taking turns of helming in the sunshine. Friday was an “island tour”. We sailed down the East side of Sandray and Pabbay before anchoring in Mingulay Bay. Mingulay was very atmospheric, with its old overgrown graveyard, and ruined church sitting mournfully above the sandy bay. We spent the

night anchored at Shelter Rock, below Barra Head Lighthouse, where we were visited by a basking shark swimming majestically past in the evening calm. It was time to head back to Vatersay on the Saturday, to prepare for the CCC muster and BBQ the next day. The Vatersay BBQ certainly lived up to its billing as the “main event” of the CCC Cruise. After the BBQ, a plan to sail to St Kilda with a few other boats was hatched, based on a reasonable forecast. Early next morning, we headed off in company as planned, in


To The Edge And Back We motored across to Loch Moidart on a calm sea the next day. The South Channel entrance is tricky, to say the least, but it was worth the effort. We anchored behind Riska Island, near Castle Tioram, unoccupied since 1715, when it was burnt down by the Chief of Clanranald to stop the Hanovarians using it when he joined the Jacobite cause.

mist and drizzle. As we left Vatersay Sound behind, the wind and waves built steadily, making for fast, if bumpy, progress. The mist persisted all the way to St Kilda, and our first sight of the islands was the cliffs of the Dun emerging tall, dark and foreboding close by on our port. One of our buddies arrived at the same time, emerging like a ghost ship out of the mist on our starboard, as she rode the large waves. After anchoring, we felt a sense of achievement. It had been a long sail, but it was certainly worth it. As the mist cleared in the afternoon, the full majesty of Village Bay was tantalisingly revealed. On the Tuesday we were blessed with a beautiful day to explore St Kilda. It was clear why St Kilda is often referred to as being “the island on the edge of the world”. We left St Kilda at midday, heading for Ensay. As we approached the Sound Of Harris the weather deteriorated. We entered the bay North of Borosdale Point and anchored in teeming rain. Scalpay was chosen as our next destination. After sailing up the East coast of Harris we anchored in North

Harbour, near the abandoned concrete hulk from World War 2. We left for Badachro after breakfast next day in flat calm. We considered stopping at the Shiant Islands, to view the puffin colony, but didn’t really have time. Maybe it’s just as well, as the Shiants have the only UK population of the Ships Rat! After anchoring in Badachro, we had a scrub up and went ashore for a very nice meal and a walk. The midges were just as ravenous as they were in 1985, when we last visited. We tacked down between the mainland and Rona next morning, before anchoring in isolated Poll Domhain. A Sea Eagle made an appearance, watching us closely in the mist. The grey, hanging weather was still with us next morning, as we motored the few miles to the pontoon at Kyle Of Lochalsh, sighting another basking shark as we passed the Crowlin islands. We left Kyle on the Sunday, speeding through Kyle Rhea under sail at 10 knots over the ground. We quickly reached Eigg and anchored at Pol Nam Partam, near Isle Oronsay. Another yacht joined us, running up on one of the many rocks before sliding back off and anchoring sheepishly in the corner of the bay!

We reluctantly bypassed many enticing anchorages as we sped past Mull, Gometra, Iona, and the Ross Of Mull on the Tuesday. We finally reached our destination of Loch Staosnaig, Colonsay, anchoring off the beach after 75 miles of sailing. We departed for Craighouse the next day, enjoying a fast and exciting passage through the Sound of Islay in a strong SW wind. We went ashore in Craighouse and had a nice meal at the Jura Hotel. A family dispute over the “shared” pudding nearly caused WW3! Craighouse to Port Ellen was an easy day sail next day, in full sun and a good sailing breeze. Our tidal gate calculation gave us a fairly early start for the Mull Of Kintyre on the Friday. We timed it just about right, with the turning tide carrying us round past Sanda. We reached Campbeltown in the late afternoon. We felt we were back in familiar waters now, and in the sunshine and a good North wind we sailed to Millport next day The final day of our holiday was spent motoring back to Rhu while getting our detritus organised for disembarking. We had thoroughly enjoyed our first Outer Hebridean cruise, and will be back for more next year. Alastair Cameron, “Dream Catcher”

Raven - Sira Cup

RAVEN CAN 25 wins Sira Cup at 2010 Eight Metre World Cup in Toronto The 2010 Eight Metre World Cup was held at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC) in Toronto from August 21st to 28th. There were fifteen competitors representing five countries competing for the World Cup and the Sira Cup (for yachts built prior to 1960). Despite Lake Ontario’s reputation for light to moderate winds, the regatta was sailed in mostly 10-20+ knots with the exception of the last day, which was 5-7 knots at best. After eight races (allowing for one drop race), Iris Metten’s Aluette, sailing under the Swiss flag, edged out Murdoch McKillop’s Lafayette, GBR 2 from RNCYC, to win the World Cup by three points. In the Sira Cup, Raven finished with a commanding 22 point lead over Bangalore, CAN 6 sailed by Olympic medalist Terry MacLaughlin and 24 points ahead of Diane Palm’s three time Sira Cup winner, Venture II, CAN 29. 50

In the final results, Raven, owned by RNCYC members Richard Self and Mark DeCelles won the Sira Cup and finished sixth overall, one point from fourth, ahead of two moderns and just behind two others, Yquem and Mystery. Despite competing against seven moderns in big breeze and resulting big seas, Raven’s finishes were 7,5,5,6,6,4,6,3. The results are a testament to her original design for sailing in the Clyde and on Scotland’s west coast, and the quality of the original builder and the recent restoration. In addition to the two owners, Raven’s helmsman for the 2010 event was RNCYC member Bryan Gooderham and the other crewmembers were Canadians, Ian “Pedro” Nowell, Mike Molloy, Hugh Beaton and Reinhard Brucker from Lindau, Germany. RNCYC member Terence Brownrigg who was in Toronto as a member of the International Jury, in writing to fellow member, and A. Mylne expert, Ian Nicolson about Raven, wrote,

“I was privileged to have a guided tour of the boat…. you simply must see her - what has been done is fantastic and the systems and gear are superior to any other Eight I’ve seen - old or new.” Fortunately, the interaction with Terence and the other members of the jury was purely social as the regatta did not have a single protest despite the challenging conditions and close racing. Raven (ex. Pandora of Rhu) is a 1938 Alfred Mylne (design #393) built in Ardmaliesh, at Bute Slip & Dock for Sir Thomas C. Glen-Coats. Unfortunately, she was mostly derelict when she was purchased by Richard Self and Mark DeCelles in 2007 and sent to John Gyles yard in Thornbury, Ontario, Canada for an extensive two-year restoration. The project included replacing 80 of 126 ribs, replanking 30 percent of the boat, a new deck, house and interior, plus winches, gear, rigging and sails. Naval Architect Steve Killing was engaged to assist in


Raven - Sira Cup

the engineering for the new mast, mast step, standing rigging and deck layout as none of the original remained. Raven was recommissioned and launched in May 2009 in Lake Ontario to continue her racing career under the Royal Canadian Yacht Club burgee. Since returning to active racing, in addition to the 2010 Sira Cup, this “old Scottish Gal” as she is referred to, has won the Lake Ontario, RCYC Club, and the North American Championships, in 2009 and again in 2010. Raven is headed to Flensburg, Germany in 2011 to defend the Sira Cup against the best Eights in Europe, including HM King Harald V’s Sira, NOR 33, the 2009 Sira Cup winner. The World Cup in 2012 will be at the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes, and Raven will again compete for the Sira Cup and return to the UK for the first time since she was sold to North America in the late 1950’s.

Visit of the Schooner Eleonora

One of the highlights of the summer was the visit to the Gareloch of the schooner Eleonora. Owned by Mr Zbynek Zak, a Club member since 2005, she arrived off Rhu on 13 August 2010 and moored just to the north of the Club moorings. An exact replica of the schooner Westward she was built at the Van der Graaf shipyard in Holland and was launched in March 2000. Eleonora not only follows Westward’s heritage of big schooner racing but also offers unforgettable luxury cruising. The Club Flag Officers and their guests were fortunate to have the opportunity to see at first hand Eleonora’s immaculate detail and finish when invited onboard for drinks on the evening of her arrival. This was followed by a dinner in the Clubhouse at which Mr Zak and his wife were guests of the Commodore and Officers. Sailing the following morning after her brief overnight stay Eleonora presented an impressive sight as she headed down river to continue her 2010 Clyde cruise. Chris Roddis

Club Tr aining Schedule 2011 The Club is again organising courses to meet your needs and the more popular ones have been programmed in for the coming months. If you do not see what you want below then please let the office know. These courses are primarily aimed for Cruisers (power or sail) but all are welcome if all you want to do is increase your Theoretical Knowledge.

Mooring Facilities CLUB MOORINGS The Club maintains a mooring field, which is let to Members on a seasonal basis. Visitor and temporary moorings may be available from time to time, and enquiry should be made at the Club Office. A suitable pennant must be supplied. Provision and integrity of pennants and pick up buoys is the responsibility of Members. Details of the recommended design are available from the Office. Pennants can be obtained from DRB Marine (Donnie Bruce) - 01436 831231 or J F Marine (John Mullen) 01436 820584. This should be fitted by the Member using the mooring – it should be noted that the Club will not supply or fit a pennant and any member of staff who carries out the task does so in his private capacity as the agent of the Member. WINTER STORAGE The Club provides a winter storage area for Members’ boats at competitive rates – details of charges and availability can be obtained from the Club Office. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER The Club, its Office Bearers, Committee, Servants and Voluntary Assistants accept no liability whatsoever for loss, damage or injury of any description whatsoever that may be sustained by boats, owners, crews and guests or any of them taking part in any Club activity, or using jetties, ramps, moorings, piers, premises or any other facilities or parts thereof or using or accepting assistance from launches or boats whether provided by the Club, said Office Bearers, Committee, Servants or Voluntary Assistants or not.

Club Launch Service 2011 The Club launch service runs throughout the season and is available from 0900 to sunset or 2100, whichever is the earlier, or as noted below for early and late season. The specific timetable is as follows: WEEKDAYS 0900 1 April to 30 September SATURDAY 0900 2 April to 24 September 1200 1 to 29 October SUNDAY 0900 3 April to 25 September 1200 2 to 30 October Within these hours our aim is that you will not have to wait longer than 5 minutes for the launch to be on its way to you. Those with Club moorings will already be aware that we have a dual callout system using VHF radio Channel 37 and mobile phone, which will be carried throughout the season by the Bosun or by the Duty Boatman. After 30 September, the Bosun is available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays to operate the launch service during working hours by prior arrangement. At least 24 hours advance notice must be given to the Bosun. The mobile phone number is: 07840 275493 The service is provided primarily for the holders of Club moorings. Members with adjacent moorings may make a prior arrangement for service with the Club Office at a charge. The boatmen operate under standing instructions, particularly that the maximum capacity of each launch is 10 including the boatman and you are asked to avoid embarrassing them by seeking service outside the declared parameters. In particular it is essential that young children are kept seated and under control in the launch. The launches are not equipped to operate after sunset. Except for a serious emergency, the service will be suspended in significantly adverse weather conditions, which must be the sole judgement of the duty boatman. Members returning to their moorings in these circumstances should consider diverting temporarily to Rhu Marina. FLAG ETIQUETTE A leaflet on Flag Etiquette is available from the Office 55

RNCYC Photo Competition We held our first photographic competition this year and some of the entries will be visible in this publication. The only criteria was that the subject should be loosely related to sailing or the sea. We had all sorts, from family snaps afloat to action racing photos but most were probably seascapes and some very nice photos were submitted. With most photography success is determined by the lighting and it is probably no surprise that the photos judged to be the best of the bunch are strong in this regard. In 3rd place Jeanette Wilson’s shot of a rainbow over Tobermory was a great capture and a lesson that it is always good to carry a camera. These sorts of conditions don’t often present themselves and it would be a shame to miss them. Good quality compact cameras are easily carried so there really is no excuse. In 2nd place, Ken Glen’s shot of two tugs in the Gareloch is another example of being in the right place at the right time and captures the action a dram very well. Cropped in tight it cuts out all the distracting stuff we get on the shoreline around the Clyde and focuses attention on the subject. The winner was Alastair Cameron’s shot of Sivota in Greece. There are a few elements of the composition that could be improved, without doubt, but the overall idea is great. The lighting and colours make the photo. The response to the competition was great and we will repeat it this winter, so keep that camera with you and be ready for the call for you photographs.

International Collision Regulations Part B – steering and sailing rules

Extract from rule 9 – narrow channels a. A vessel proceeding along the course of a narrow or fairway shall keep as near to the outer limit of the channel or fairway which lies on her starboard side as is safe and practicable. b. A vessel of less than 20 metres in length or a sailing vessel shall not impede the passage of a vessel which can safely navigate only within a narrow channel or fairway. c. A vessel engaged in fishing shall not impede the passage of any other vessel navigating within a narrow channel or fairway. d. A vessel shall not cross a narrow channel or fairway if such crossing impedes the passage of a vessel which can safely navigate only within such channel or fairway. The latter vessel may use the sound signal (at least five short blasts) if in doubt as to the intention of the crossing vessel.

Note to rule 9

A narrow channel is not defined, for the very good reason that the term is a relative one. The ability to apply this rule calls for a certain amount of background knowledge of ship types and handling characteristics. In general, however, it should be assumed that any channel which is marked by port and starboard hand buoys will be treated as a narrow channel by ocean going ships. Thus the Clyde Estuary inward of Garroch Head at the south end of Bute is a narrow channel as far as merchant and naval ships are concerned. Once a ship is committed to a narrow channel, in the approaches to a harbour, it has to be manoeuvred with precision. If it has to slow down, it may lose steerage way and if it deviates from its planned track it may not be able to turn tightly enough in the next bend. Any yachtsman who impedes the progress of a large ship in a narrow channel, is therefore, being totally irresponsible. Note that Rule 9 (b) is mandatory – 
‘shall not’ are the words used.
