Editor’s Note Welcome to what is now the fourth RNCYC Yearbook which I have put together. Many things change over the years. We now have a new Commodore, several new Flag Officers and various new Committee Members however whilst all these things change, for the Yearbook Editor the essential things stay the same - Chris Roddis, Neill Ross, Belinda and the girls at D-tech. These are the people who make the Editors job a pleasure and very easy to do.

Welcome to the 2012 YearbooK

T

his is not only our member handbook but the shop window for our activities by which we reach out to sailors near and far, to inform and enthuse about the opportunities available through this historic club. Our members will want to check the racing and cruising programme for the season, the social events to put in their diary and the more practical details of bar opening, launch service, office hours and other day to day information that makes the Club tick. All of this gives the visitor, guest and interested member of public a feel for what the Club is about and perhaps convince them of the benefits of membership. All readers will gain inspiration from the tales of cruising, great regattas and competitive campaigns whether that be from our relaxed cruisers on the West Coast, ARC participants or our front line racing sailors operating up to and including Olympic representation. This year we look forward to a visit to Long Island Sound, USA, in July and our alternate venue biannual match with our friends at the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club. A team of sixteen of our enthusiastic team racers in crews of four will battle over five days of racing for the Commodores International Cup. Earlier in the year the Club is providing on the water organisation for the McGruer Classic Regatta to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of that famous yacht building yard. The Club’s sailing programme is central to its success. This encompasses junior sail training, midweek racing in one design keelboats and cruiser racers, team racing, keelboat skills development and participation in events with other Clyde clubs, as well as cruising far and wide.

Junior training is based on our fleet of Optimist dinghies and a programme of teaching, training and development will take place from April. The Club also has two RS Feva two-handed dinghies to allow older, more experienced developers the chance to push their limits. The opportunity exists to team race these in association with the fleet at Helensburgh Sailing Club. The Club also provides RYA Powerboat training courses in ribs as well as shorebased theory courses. Details of all of these activities are contained in the Yearbook. We are fortunate to have our own extensive mooring field served by a seasonal daily launch service on demand that gives convenient access to their boats for our dayboat racers and cruising yachtsmen. We have a well established relationship with the nearby Rhu Marina and our mooring holders receive complimentary vouchers to allow pre and post cruise visits as well as discounted rates on overnight berthage. This gives convenient access to fuel and water supplies as well as easing major provisioning and crew movements. Our OD keelboat racing fleet includes the venerable Gareloch Class, the classic McGruer built wooden sloops that provide intense competition amongst owners and which, as a class, exchange visits with other classic yacht groups throughout the UK, Ireland and indeed as far as Germany, setting an example of true class participation in the life of the Club. Although constructed of the more modern medium of glass fibre, the Piper Class has similar classic one design lines and invokes the same spirit of competition amongst its resurgent group of owners, both Club based and elsewhere on the Clyde. The Club is almost unique in Scotland, in having access to a dedicated fleet of one design keelboats for teaching, training and racing purposes. The fleet of nine Sonars jointly owned by the Club and participating members provides a model for effective provision of a valuable resource that

Commodore’s Foreword overcomes the potential drawbacks of wholly club owned boats. This allows the Club to promote and organise internal and external team racing, match racing and keelboat development events as well as providing a third, more modern, keelboat class for Club race nights. The Sonar, designed by Bruce Kirby of Laser fame is a responsive, roomy dayboat capable of planing in brisk winds thus providing a rewarding return for the member owners when they go racing. Tuesday evening racing is used to give local school pupils the chance to learn the basics of keelboat racing and, once experienced, to take responsibility for a boat on their own. This resource is available to all members and to external organisations such as Universities, schools and other sailing clubs. Corporate team building programmes are also possible. Once ashore our members can relax in the impressive surroundings of our architecturally listed clubhouse with a variety of public rooms from the airy bar lounge through the recently refurbished “Sonda” lounge to formal dining in “Majesta” and all manner of formal functions in the spectacular “Oriana” Our resident chef, Shaun Wane, runs the catering and bar operation at the Club through his Jam Jar Catering business and is developing an ever growing reputation for quality food at all levels. Members and their family and friends can hire the clubhouse and facilities for weddings, birthday parties and other social gatherings. The Club organises social functions and activities throughout the year culminating in the Winter Ball and including Bridge evenings, Reels nights, Pilates’ classes, talks and lectures, as well as occasional boat jumbles, Christmas Bazaars and the like. There is much to do on and off the water at RNCYC and I look forward to seeing you during 2012. Please contact me through the office if I can help you with any aspect of Club activity. I wish you fair winds throughout the season

Looking forward to the remaining months of the year, a jam packed wedding season approaches with both members and indeed non-members choosing our beautiful building to be both married and hold their receptions here. It is our hope that with the ever increasing outside wedding and event interest that subscriptions to the Club will swell. Firm favourites on the sailing calendar are also on the horizon and we wait with anticipation for the start of the sailing season. The ever popular sailing suppers and summer bbq’s are high on our radar as are the Winter Ball and associated Club dinners . It is a given that your social committee and caterers should work hand in hand and this is indeed the case at the RNCYC with both parties committed to providing a diverse and engaging social calendar. It is our aim to increase the number of Club led events as well as devising occasional events aimed at ‘showing off’ the beautiful building and rich history of the Club and in turn attracting new members. We look forward to meeting you.

Social Scene

Amanda Forbes and Ali Paton were married in the Yacht Club and had a brilliant reception within the teepees on the front lawn.

The Lifeworks Art Show held in the Club in May 2011 was a huge success raising over ÂŁ5,400 for Cancer Research UK . Organised by the Rosneath Peninsula Cancer Research committee, the show featured paintings, pottery and jewellery from artists across Scotland including local artists Mary Batchelor, Julia Gurney and Anita McLaren.

14


The Club acquired a new flag pole in August 2011. However, in May we lost the marquee as a storm victim.

Dogs have to be measured for a handicap in the Annual Gareloch Class Dog Race.

The Tall Ships fleet visited the Clyde July 2011. They set sail on one of the few sunny days of last year.

15


Social Scene

The Christmas Dance 2011 was enjoyed by old and young. In the absence of the Club marquee it was held totally within the clubhouse and proved a very enjoyable night for all. As can be seen by Flag Officers, old and new, and the Club Secretary above.

The Ladies of the Club enjoyed their annual Christmas Lunch organised by Margaret Fleming.

Key Dates – Social The following specific events are scheduled for the coming season. This will be supplemented by a full and varied social programme as advertised during the year.

Saturday 26th January 2013


Alistair Hart & Tracey Maleham got married in the clubhouse last autumn.

Sonda was refurbished last year and looks very grand in its new decor.

The Club held its annual Burns’ Supper in Majesta. This was a much smaller more intimate but enjoyable affair than in previous years. However, Alan Johnston made his usual brilliant effort of addressing the haggis. 17


Archivist’s Report 2012

Club Launch Service 2012 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:

Up in the Attic Conditions for researching Club records, over the cold spell, have been grimm! Our unheated attic space suffers extremes of climate and humidity. This is all very bad news for our, essentially, paper records. The notion of “Googling” our records from an armchair is of course a happy thought and it is the digitising process that stands between us and future comforts. However from the Archivist’s point of view most enquiries concern past members, their dates of membership and yacht. This basic information is not enormous even though it is spread over nearly two centuries! So we require a data-base with a key word search facility, for names and dates. Formidable as the task seems two factors in some way would ease the problem. The first is that once a year of membership data is entered, then the following year can be created by noting merely the changes to membership, and these are not huge from year to year. The other beneficial feature is that in recent years our records have been fully digitised. The input the office prepares for membership lists would be, one assumes, readymade data-base entries. The creation of a record of our General Committee Minutes and Annual Report would be a more difficult task. Those hand written records are unlikely to scan meaningfully. However it would be possible to extract key events – major financial decisions, major events, trophies, appointments etc and enter these by search code and year, in a database format. If we split the work up and had volunteers each to read say a decade of committee news, then we could make surprising progress. Most helpful discussions have already taken place with Belinda and colleagues. Members are urged to give the matter some thought and phone or Email the archivist on any ideas that may arise. Remember, this could be an information system for all purposes and for some time to come. Ian Broadley Hon Archivist 18

WEEKDAYS SATURDAY SUNDAY

0900 0900 1200 0900 1200

30 March to 28 September 31 March to 29 September 6 to 27 October 1 April to 30 September 7 to 28 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 28 September, the Bosun is available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays only 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

Mooring Facilities

RNCYC Cruising Musters

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. Members and their guests use Club facilities and take part in Club activities entirely at their own risk.

RUBBISH It is an offence under Board of Trade regulation to dump rubbish overboard, and a heavy fine can be imposed – BINS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE CLUB – INCLUDING THOSE FOR RECYCLING CARDBOARD, TINS AND BOTTLES (GLASS AND PLASTIC)

Black Farland Bay Muster Four Club boats went to BBQ on the beach on Saturday 11 June. We set off in calm sunshine, with ominous clouds visible all around the Clyde. As the clouds followed us down river we were not hopeful of escaping the rain. However, after a few drinks on-board Full Circle at anchor, a group decision was made “to go for it”. We all enjoyed a dry-ish, but not midge free, BBQ. However, eventually the smoke conquered even the hardiest of midges! All agreed it was well worth the effort for an enjoyable weekend.

w w w. b a v a r i a s c o t l a n d c h a r t e r s . c o . u k The RNCYC Charitable Trust, established in 2003, 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. These aims 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. 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 included a donation to help a team of local young sailors participate in the Sonar World Championships hosted by the Club . In addition, donations were given to young sailors in various RYA squads to help towards the cost of training and competition, these included Anna Burnet, Lorenzo Chiavarini and the windsurfer Natalie McWilliams. A donation was also made to the Glasgow University Sailing Team to help towards training and participation costs for the Student Yachting World Cup, held at Trinite-sur-mer, France, in October 2011. Having become the Scottish National Champions the Glasgow University team automatically qualified for the event of which you can read more in a separate article contained within this Yearbook. Finally, many thanks to all those members who kindly contributed to the Trust when making their annual subscriptions. You will see from the Trust’s annual report, distributed with other reports prior to the Club’s AGM, that the Trust continues to enjoy a healthy balance sheet. Chris Roddis 22

Team Racing 2012

One Design Class Contacts & Sailing Committee

GARELOCH ONE DESIGN Charles Darley PIPER ONE DESIGN Andrew Nicholson SONAR CLASS Stewart Gibb SIGMA 33 OFFSHORE OD This year will see a busy team racing programme for the RNCYC. Building on previous years’ successes, RNCYC is continuing to host the Friday Evenings Team & Match Practice in Sonars. New teams are formed each week to encourage participation from novice and experienced team racers alike. Everyone is welcome to come along, meeting 18:00 at the Club Fridays from 27th April till late June. In addition, the 3rd Scottish Two Boat Team Racing Championship will be held at Rhu on 23rd & 24th June. Participating teams (of 8 persons for 2 boats) in the past have included Scottish Universities, RNCYC, Edinburgh University, Royal St. George Yacht Club (Dublin) and Durham “Dambusters”. This year, racing will be adjudicated by the UK’s top international team racing umpires (Bruce Hebbert & Peter Johnson), as well as nationally qualified umpires from Scotland. All teams are welcome: Notice of Race and Entry Form are available from www.rncyc.com As well as team racing events on the Clyde, this year the RNCYC will be sending teams to prestigious national & international events, such as the Cumberland Cup, hosted by Royal Thames Yacht Club (Queen Mary Reservoir, London) and the Commodores International Cup, hosted by Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club (Long Island Sound, New York). In another exciting development, the RNCYC has committed itself, in terms of hosting and supporting, the soon to be ISAF recognised, 2K European team racing circuit (essentially two keelboat team racing). This development of an international team racing circuit allows sailors to compete in top-level team racing in keelboats without the need to transport large teams nor require clubs to have the large yacht fleets necessary for 3-boat and 4-boat team racing. Events will be held in Scotland, Ireland, England, Italy and the Netherlands, with a European Championship scheduled for 2013.

Sailing Report

In this Olympic year, the Club is immensely proud that our own Luke Patience is to represent Great Britain in the 470 Class. Luke has always given time to the club. He is to visit us in Spring and speak to junior sailors. Keep an eye on the website for details. During a visit a couple of years or so ago, the key advice he gave to up and coming juniors was ‘be good to your parents, you will need their support’. He was flummoxed when asked what he would do if he didn’t make Olympic selection. In a recent television interview, he was especially grateful to his mother, who suggested he leave school to concentrate on sailing. It is natural for a yacht club to be engrossed with racing. The best form of club racing is one design and our three one design classes are going from strength to strength. The Sonars, fresh from last years World Championship here on the Clyde, have a busy season. They are the backbone of keelboat sailing for juniors. This year, there will be training for beginners on Tuesday evenings as well as race training for those with more experience. They are the boats used for match racing and team racing. As usual, we shall be hosting events for universities. The club’s own team, with impetus from Craig Macdonald and Griogair Whyte, is becoming more involved with team racing. They are to visit Seawanhaka for the Commodore’s International Cup in July. There is great interest in two boat team racing, the fiercest form. Expect to see more events, both at home and away. Craig Macdonald’s team race training on Friday evenings starts on 27th April. It is open to all. 30

There is a renaissance in the Piper Class with competitive racing throughout the fleet. Alan Armstrong in Lilium shook up the fleet last year with successive wins. Magic Flute and Curlew have also been added to the usual competitors. In the first series of the year, the Pipers and Garelochs race together from scratch. Both classes are sharpened. The Garelochs continue to have enthusiastic support. As well as Tuesday evenings, they race on Sunday afternoons with at start at 1500. Other classes would be welcome to join in. For many years, Garelochs have team raced against other classic one designs. This year they look forward to a visit from the Freundeskreis Klassische Yachten are to go to Howth to race in 17 footers. The oldest one design keelboat in the world. Canine readers will be interested in the dog race on 8th September when boats have a time allowance of 5 seconds per inch of overall length of dog. For those who do not seek the cut and thrust of one design racing, there are cruising musters. CCC Opening Muster 28th, 29th April; Cruise to Loch Goil, 12th, 13th May; Jubilee Cruise to Kyles of Bute, 2nd, 3rd June; Cruise to Arran, 28th 29th July and End of Season Cruise to Port Bannantyne on 8th 9th September. The Club Regatta on 21st July will have a handicap pursuit. On 4th August, a cruise in company is planned to commemorate the bicentenary of Henry Bell’s Comet. The Helensburgh Heritage Trust is closely involved with arrangements. A contingent of steam launches is expected. Have a good sailing season. Charles Darley


The demand for Tea Cakes is so great our new robot has to work day and night

Meeting demand and still maintaining the highest quality. That’s where technology comes in and gets together with 120 plus years of experience. Our new robots play a vital part in packing 4 million Tunnock’s Tea Cakes every week. Each one is picked up and placed in its box with a touch so light that the chocolate shell is as perfect as it should be and even the famous foil wrapping shows not a mark. It’s all part of getting them to you fast and fresh. Thomas Tunnock Ltd., 34 Old Mill Road, Uddingston G71 7HH Tel: 01698 813551 Fax: 01698 815691 Email: sales@tunnock.co.uk

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. 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.

Luke Patience Olympic selection for the Men’s 470 Class with crew Stuart Bithell. We went to the ISAF Sailing World Championships, with a job to do, to win gold and give the selectors no excuse not to pick us for the 2012 Olympics. In that respect it was like no Worlds I have ever prepared for or been to before. But we didn’t win gold, we won silver and that ate at me over Christmas and New Year. I was completely unsure about being selected and while I was quietly hopeful, and certainly felt that we deserved it, I wasn’t confident. We spend our lives trying to control the controllable, but this was something completely out of our control and although we were happy to get another Worlds silver, it wasn’t gold and we don’t compete to come second. However, early January brought the best news possible with selection for the Olympic Sailing team in the Men’s 470 42

class joining seven other classes already selected. Now everything is about onwards and forwards. We are not going to be doing anything dramatically differently to what we’ve been doing for the past two years because this has resulted in ten medals for us. But it is fair to say there is a new sense of drive and enthusiasm behind everything we are doing. We are being very focused in our goal setting and what we want to get out of every single day. The Skandia Team GBR support staff have been amazing, but since being selected we know there is absolutely no wrong time or place to seek advice and they are doing everything they can to help us win. We are really looking forward to being part of the close-knit team for the Games and although we missed out on the Test Event last year as we are confident that as pretty happy go lucky guys and we will get on well with all the team.

Being the first Scot to be selected for Team GB for London 2012 is the coolest thing, a fact I didn’t appreciate until a reporter mentioned it to me halfway through an interview. Clearly this is a serious privilege and although I obviously won’t be flying the Scottish flag at the Games, RYA Scotland, the Scottish Institute of Sport and everyone back at my home club, the Royal Northern and Clyde YC, know I am sincerely grateful for all they have done to help me get to this point. You can take the boy out of Scotland but you can’t take Scotland out of the boy! It feels amazing to know I have the support of my home nation behind me.

CHARLOTTE DOBSON Charlotte has continued to improve over the year and is just waiting to hear whether she has been selected to compete in the 2012 Olympics. After two very successful championships out of three, we hope that all her efforts and successes will be justly rewarded.

Natalie McWilliams Natalie’s action packed 2011 season included coming 19th in the International Windsurfing World Championships in San Francisco, USA in July having moved up from 38th position in the same Championships in France in the year before. She also secured first placed girl in the Scottish Windsurfing Championship, as well being the first placed girl in the UK Windsurfing Association Inland Series. Later in the year, with an eye to the future, Natalie moved up to the RS:X Windsurfing Olympic Class and began training for National and International competitions in 2012. In October Natalie qualified for inclusion in the RYA Scotland Windsurfing Squad for the fourth time and in recognition of her overall success was presented with the all-round sailing achievement trophy by the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club at the annual prize giving. The new racing season has got off to a successful start with Natalie winning a silver medal at Largs Sailing Club as well as taking 2nd place, and being the first girl, in the mixed fleet at the Malin Waters RYA Scotland Spring Championships held on 24/25 March. Natalie was absolutely delighted with this early success in the RS:X Class, which was achieved after intensive training over the winter months at the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy and at Troon, as well as regular gym training sessions. On the following evening of Monday 26 March Natalie attended the annual Hamilton Sports Council Awards Ceremony where she took third place in the female Under 18 category for sporting achievement during 2011. 43


Glasgow University Yachting Team 10th at World Cup

This year's Student Yachting World Cup was set on the French Atlantic coast in the fisherman town of La TrinitĂŠsur-Mer, where 15 of the best student yachting teams the world has to offer gathered to battle it out on the water. Representing Scotland was a team of keen sailors from University of Glasgow, consisting of Moray Clark (Helm) Henry Viljanen (Main) Peder Schimmell (Tactics) Sam Tabor (U/W trim) Ailsa Pender (D/W Trim) Alex Erjavec (Pit) and Charlie Foot (Bow), were all eager to fight for a top position. 44


The first two days gave us the opportunity to get accustomed to the boats used for the World cup and to familiarise with local waters and tidal streams. The second training day also gave the teams a chance to eye each other out on the racecourse in a practice race that didn't count towards the final score. The team from Glasgow had two good training days and after the opening ceremony with speeches from all the important people we were ready to start racing. However the French weather wanted it otherwise and a big storm started to build the night before the first race day, this caused for all racing to be cancelled on the Sunday because of the extreme wind speeds. A bit of a disappointment but as experienced sailors we know that's part of the game. To cheer us up the organizers had planned a social evening where each team served local food from their home country for. As true Scots we brought them a haggis and a wee dram. The briefing the next morning was again a disappointment, racing was postponed until 2.00pm and we were all hoping to go racing in the afternoon, unfortunately the sea state was still too dangerous for racing and eventually it was cancelled for the day. The tension amongst the teams was high after two days of postponement and everyone was extremely keen to go racing, as such it was a relief that racing could take place on Tuesday, the third race day of the regatta. With an early first start at 9.00am four races was scheduled for the day, including two passage races. The team was ready and excited for racing to start and we had prepared for a long day at sea. Our preparations turned out to be valuable and despite a few errors, such as navigating the wrong way for part of the first passage race we managed to score a series of 8,7,12,8 which left us 9th overall after the first day. It had been an extremely

tough day with very close racing and we arrived back in the marina at 8.45pm after 12 hours on the sea. The last passage race was particularly interesting and after 23 nautical miles of challenging sailing we had been in every position from 2nd to 10, as the finish approached it was dark and a photo finish was needed, as there were 5 boats finishing within seconds from each other in pitch black. Wednesday morning everyone was a bit tired, but that quickly disappeared when we got down to the boat and ready for the day. First race was looking good until the jib halyard sheave at the top of the mast broke on the final downwind - so we couldn't get the jib up for the last part of the race. This resulted in us having to miss the next race to fix it all. We managed to be back out for the 3rd race to post an acceptable score of 9th and in the fourth and last race of the day we recovered from a few errors to score a 7th. Back on shore it was protest time and with 19 protests of which 8 was between the English and the French it was clear that racing was tight. We managed to get a redress for the race we missed due to the gear failiure, so all in all the day had been decent. Thursday dawned cold and breezy but we were ready for it and got on the water early to play with our trim settings. The wind dropped throughout the day and after a bit of waiting time on the water we got the second race going, with two 6th places for the day we were pretty happy and moved up another place in the rankings.

Spanish and Norwegian team managed to sail past us on the scoreboard. The team finished 10th overall and while perhaps disappointing to drop 2 places on the last day, the team is very proud of our result in the 2011 Student Yachting World Cup. The event was a fantastic experience for everyone on the team and we all gained a lot of experience sailing wise and personally. Organising a campaign of this level with fundraising, training and everything else was challenging but taught us all a lot. The Student Yachting World Cup is an extremely well organized event which made it all the more fun to take part, the social side was great with aprèssailing crepes on the marina and dinner for all the teams organised every night. Also here the Glasgow team made its impact and anonymous sources have hinted that the organisers found us to be the most fun team there. The team would like to thank all our supporters and sponsors who made the challenge in France possible, without your effort it would have been impossible for us to have the honor of representing Scotland at SYWoC 2011, giving us a truly amazing experience. In particular we would like to thank the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club, the Mudhook Yacht Club, the Clyde Cruising Club Seamanship & Pilotage Trust and Glasgow University Sports Association. Moray Clark

Going in to the last race day we were sitting 8th overall but we were keen to improve on that. The wind was light and shifty coming off land so we knew it was going to be difficult. The race committee completed three races and the team tried to rise to the challenge hoping to claim a 7th overall. Unfortunately the tricky conditions got the better of us and the 45


Memories of sailing in the 1948 Olympic Games By Hamish Hardie Mbe A Crew Member Of The Six Metre Johan

The ’48 sailing Trials and International Races were held in Torquay. The 6 metre and Dragon course (14 miles) was well out in the Bay with the Star, Swallow and Firefly courses closer in. In the 1936 Games in Kiel, Britain had won gold in the six metre and bronze (Peter Scott) in the single handed. After the 48 Games the 6 metres were discontinued as an Olympic class. Life in the UK in 1948 was still much affected by the war. There was food and clothes rationing and travel abroad was virtually impossible. There were no gap years for students. There were other differences. The Official Report of the Games was sponsored by Abdulla cigarettes and it is interesting to see how many officials smoked. Horlicks was made available to every competitor in London but I do not think much of it filtered down to Torquay. Nor do I remember getting the sponsored two pairs of Y fronts. We were so proud to wear our blazers, of which only the pocket still fits me and which now hangs permanently framed on my study wall. The total cost of the Games was £761,688 and it was thought that there might be a profit of £29,000. Of course the major then and now difference is that then it was amateur and now it’s professional. I suppose it has to be so if there is to be any chance of medals 46


in a massively enlarged competition. In ‘48 there were 25 nations yacht racing compared to the 45 nations that qualified at the 2011 World Championships for this summer’s Games. The nadir of blind amateurism was surely when Charles Curry, who had designed the hot moulded Firefly, and was the obvious choice to race that class for Britain in the ‘48 Games was blocked by a fellow International 14 sailor who objected to his ‘professional’ status as a boat builder. James Howden Hume asked my brother Bonar, Harry Hunter and me to join him and his son Douglas as the five man crew for Johan. Bonar and Harry had recently come out of the Navy and I was at St Andrews. We were all members of the Royal Clyde Yacht Club. It was a tremendous, exciting and slightly scary opportunity. Jimmy was the leading Clyde helmsman in that class. He had, in 1945, bought Johan (McGruer) which had been laid up since 1939 when she was built for the Donaldson twins. He had also bought and beautifully restored the 109 ton ketch Vadura (Morris and Lorimer). She had been requisitioned during the war and fitted out with a winch as part of the barrage balloon defence for the convoys lying in the Clyde So by the time of the 1948 Olympics he had a 6 metre to race with and a large yacht which would be the headquarters for his attempt to win an Olympic gold. We worked up the boat; Johan ‘s shrouds were solid steel with a special streamlined section which would hum whenever the wind was at a particular strength and tell us she was sailing at top speed. We trained continuously and raced sixteen times along the south coast from Southampton to Torquay. In sixteen starts we had eleven firsts, three seconds and a third from a fleet of about ten boats. So we arrived at the Trials feeling pretty good.

A hundred and seven runners brought the Olympic flame from London to Torquay where there was a parade through the town of all the competitors led by us with Douglas carrying the large Union jack. The official measuring was interesting. Morgan Giles had built a boat, the Golden Hind, for a syndicate specifically to sail in the Olympics but no amount of calculating could make her a six. She was too big. She even looked big. To make it worse she had been christened by the then Princess Elizabeth. The boat was allowed to sail in the Trials but not in the Games. How irritating would that be?

Twelve boats entered the Trials and by the last day it became clear that the Olympic boat would be either Johan or Circe which belonged to Captain G E T Eyston, (the world land speed record holder) but was being sailed by Herbert Thom the legendary Scottish Island helmsman. When the Italian boat Ciocca 11 was being measured they argued that her rudder which extended aft above the waterline should not be considered as part of the waterline and were told that they had the option of removing it. There was a story that the French boat La Bandera had been deliberately submerged throughout the war so that she would not be stolen by the Germans. I would love to know the truth of that. Certainly he came in last most days. Twelve boats entered the Trials and by the last day it became clear that the Olympic boat would be either Johan or Circe which belonged to Captain G E T Eyston, (the world land speed record holder) but was being sailed by Herbert Thom the legendary Scottish Island helmsman. On the final trial Circe was leading the field at the weather mark with us second. As they rounded the mark Circe’s spinnaker went out of control and we accelerated past her. An utterly unforgettable moment. Our confidence in being selected was strengthened by seeing Peter Scott and Uffa Fox standing in a launch and clapping as we rounded the leeward mark. The Times commented that the brilliant teamwork of the crew (true !!) and splendid handling could bring Johan into the prize list in spite of her defeat by the American Djinn in the Seawanhaka Cup the previous year. Djinn was now the Argentine boat and the new Llanoria , also designed by Olin Stephens, the American boat. Another comment was ’ones hope for Johan will be gone with the wind should we have much calm. She is a hard weather boat.’ The seven races started on the 3rd of August to the 7th with a three day break for checking the gear and polishing then racing again until the 12th. The Sixes start was at 1000hrs. with the Dragons on the same course fifteen minutes later.

Memories of sailing in the 1948 Olympic Games cont... It was my job to call down the ten and five minute guns which were being fired from the King George V battleship which was acting as guard ship for the Games. They were very tense minutes. We had had a bizarre run in with the KGV on our first practice over the course. We were flying a small red ensign and as we were about to pass close to her on the way to the start we decided that we should dip. As I worked my way along the counter the officer of the watch realised that there was no one standing by their flag staff aft to dip their vast white ensign in return. There was a tremendous amount of shouting from the bridge and a watch keeper appeared running as fast as he could. The quarterdecks of battleships were some fifty yards long and about half way he tripped, fell flat on his face and the large binoculars hanging round his neck caught him on the solar plexus, completely winding him. He tried to crawl but we had sailed past before he got there. They had a man standing by every day thereafter but we left our ensign ashore. It is true that Johan was best in heavy weather but sadly we didn’t get much of that. Over the series we did manage one third and three fourths but the two sevenths and an eighth did for us. Perhaps we could have done better. She was sold abroad and I saw her in Vancouver years later but I have heard that she may be back in the UK. On the inside of the cockpit coaming the organisers had attached a small plaque stating that the boat was officially representing Great Britain in the 1948 Olympic Games. I wonder if it is still there.

Hebridean Family Adventure

We left Rhu Marina for Rothesay on Friday 24th June, the boat loaded to the gunwales with stores, water, fuel, and a couple of stowaways - Flora and Clive (Dorothy’s sister and brother-in-law). Next day we sailed and motorsailed to Campbeltown, experiencing all weathers en route. On Sunday, we left early to catch the tide round the Mull. We sailed and motorsailed past Sanda and the Mull, before heading towards the Ardmore Islands. A quick check of the tidal curve on the plotter revealed that we could make the tidal gate at the Sound Of Islay, so we pressed on. The wind in the Sound was strong and we poled out, then broad reached at more than 8kts. We arrived at Glenbatrick Bay, Jura, at 15:45, anchoring behind the protection of the rocks. We watched a lovely sunset, with the light reflecting off the windows in the house, as if it they were painted gold. Monday dawned sunny but calm, and we had to motor all the way to Gunna. The anchorage was a bit tricky to enter, but we crept in and anchored securely. We explored the island, enjoying the warm sun, 50

Cruising Trophy Won By Alastair Cameron, Dreamcatcher

and the views South to Tiree and North across the turquoise channel to Coll. It was a lovely morning on the Tuesday and we had an exhilarating sail across the Minch in a steady F4/5. We were joined en route by a pod of dolphins, swimming and jumping all around the boat for about 15 minutes. We arrived at Eriskay mid afternoon, and picked up a visitors mooring. There was something really special about the atmosphere of the anchorage. It is also very sheltered once you negotiate the transits on the way in. The good weather was holding as we reached to Loch Maddy on the Wednesday in a South-westerly F3/4. The only free visitors mooring seemed very close to the ferry docking area, but we picked it up anyway. We were enjoying a beer in the cockpit when the ferry approached menacingly. I felt like the lifting bow was going to swallow us up, like a scene from James Bond. All that was missing was the bikini clad ladies! On the Thursday we sailed North towards Berneray, stopping at Hermetray for

lunch. The route into Berneray harbour was difficult enough to follow, without the added complication that some of the buoys have been removed recently, but are still on my plotters. On Friday morning we walked over the island to the spectacular West Beach. We left Berneray on Saturday, entering the Sound Of Harris via the appropriately named Reef Channel. We sailed to Taransay, where we went ashore to explore some of the island, walking along the beach and up to the bothy. After lunch we sailed North before anchoring between Kearstay and Scarp. It was so tranquil and quiet in that little gem of a lagoon - the water turquoise, the cliffs sheer and dark pink, and the sandy beach as lovely as any in the world. We went ashore with our barbeques, and enjoyed a wonderful sunny evening on the beach. After breakfast in the warm and sunny cockpit, we set off South again to West Loch Tarbert. It was an early start on Monday as I ferried Flora and Clive ashore to catch the ferry to Uig. When I got back


on board we set off for Camus Uig. This was the unspoilt Outer Hebrides we’d hoped for – green/blue sea glinting in the sun, a sheltered anchorage, and a beautiful white sandy beach. The morning forecast was favourable on Tuesday so we decided to press on North to West Loch Roag. We anchored between Skioram Mor and Valtos, nicely sheltered. After lunch we took the dinghy to the beach on Pabay Mor to explore. I admired the vista of East Loch Roag beyond the two Berneras, South to Loch Roag, Miavaig, and Floday, and West to Valtos. What a sailing paradise. The Wednesday forecast was for strengthening wind, so we decided to head South. We left Valtos in 30kts from the North-east. This made for an exhilarating and fast sail to West Loch Tarbert. It was only a 7 mile sail to Luskentyre next day, where we anchored overnight. There was virtually no wind and the sea was glassy calm as we went ashore for a walk along the vast sandy beach. The air of peace and tranquillity was almost palpable. We left Luskentyre next morning to get the tide through the Sound Of Harris, zigzagging through the channels before emerging into

the Minch. We had a beautiful evening in Shieldaig, the sun eventually rolling down the rocky headland at the South side of the loch entrance. It was a grey morning as we left on Saturday, but the sun came out as we poled out to Plockton, where we managed to grab the last visitors’ mooring. The sail to Pol Nam Partam on Eigg next morning was superb, the wind up to 2025kts after Kyle Rhea. I watched a family of otters playing about for a while early next morning, before the wind picked up enough for us to have a good sail to Tobermory. We motored to Crinan next day in full sun and on the glassy sea. After dinner we went ashore and walked along the canal towpath, the boats reflected in the canal like a mirror. We motored to Craighouse next morning, picked up a mooring, and went ashore for a walk and a good meal at the Jura Hotel. More sun and no wind next morning, so we had to motor all the way back to Crinan, after which we only made it to Dunardry before the canal closed. Chicken curry on board was followed by a midge-fuelled walk. I was up at 8 o’clock on the Friday. The crew complained I was deliberately rustling, clicking, banging, and clattering until they got up. The journey from Ardrishaig to Portavadie was miserable, with wind and rain on the nose. We had a superb sail on the sunny Saturday afternoon, passing the Tobermory racers as we reached and poled out to Rothesay. Our good fortune with the weather continued even on our last day. A Northwest wind allowed us to close reach up to the Cloch, before freeing off the sails as we sped back to our mooring at the Royal Northern at 7kts.

Painting Competition The Club is running a Painting Competition which anyone can enter, not just Club members. The aim is to get the Club better known and hence get more members. It is to obtain a major new painting, to hang in the Club, depicting an incident in the Club’s history. It is also to raise funds for the Club in a year when there are few major events which will supplement the members’ subscriptions. The prize is £1,000 and any artist who does not win can sell paintings at the Art Show after the prize-giving on October 17th. The entry fee is just £20 and for that modest sum anyone can put three paintings into the Competition. There is not a single Club member who has not slapped on innumerable coats of antifouling, and producing a work of art with a paint brush is scarcely more difficult. Look at some of the people who do it! With the final date so far ahead there is ample time to get enough skill, and as the paintings must be in acrylic or oils, any mistakes can simply be painted over. Members who are too lazy, creeky or busy sailing to take part are asked to get family, friends and enemies to take part. Posters are available to display in your local pub or golf club. Special arrangements have been made for painting materials to be bought at discounts. This is a chance to show that, yet again, the RNCYC leads where other clubs will inevitably follow. We need to make this Competition a vast success before every muddy creek tatty dinghy club runs its own rival event. The success of this opportunity depends of the word being spread far and wide. There’s nothing worth watching on TV so how better to spend the evenings than putting brush to canvas. For full details contact the Club Office by phone, letter or e-mail. Ian Nicolson 53


NEW BOOK G.L. Watson The Art & Science of Yacht Design This book is more than the biography of a Scottish genius – wonderfully illustrated, it tells the extraordinary story of yacht design and yacht racing on Scotland’s Clyde and West Coast. “The book of the decade.” Ian Nicolson (Yacht designer & surveyor)

Book Review “G.L.Watson. The Art & Science of Yacht Design” by Martin Black. Published in hardback by Peggy Bawn Press, c/o Copper Reed Studio, 94 Henry St. Limerick Ireland. www.peggybawnpress.com at £65.00. 495 pages with many illustrations. Indexed. This remarkable book is the result of well over 25 years of research by Martin Black, a club member. The two clubs which joined together to form the RNCYC have between them more than 44 mentions. Some of the numerous photos have been dug out of family collections and archives which have lain untouched for decades and have never before been published. The many references, handily grouped at the end of each chapter , are so extensive that yachting historians will use this book as the basis for future works. It is undeniable that there has not been a book to equal this one for many years not least because it covers so many aspects of the joys and griefs of going afloat. The America's Cup, the ups and deep downs of the rating rules, the families involved, the feuds and triumphs are all detailed and backed up with some sensational pictures. George Watson was a remarkable man. He started his company when he was just 21 and for the first two years he had a lean time. Then he designed successful racing yachts and thereafter his career took off so that he became a international figure, consorting with kings and nobles, millionaires and professional racing skippers who were prepared to sail over sandbanks to win. His output was prodigious, but then he was lucky to live at a time when electronic gadgets did not intrude so often and so annoyingly. This very exceptional man is described in profuse and fascinating detail in a very remarkable book, which also celebrates many of the successes of our club. What makes his career all

This very exceptional man is described in profuse and fascinating detail in a very remarkable book, which also celebrates many of the successes of our club. the more astonishing is that he supervised the construction of so many yachts, came so near to winning the America's Cup [frustrated by indifferent crewing, baggy sails and pure bad luck], and was an innovator ahead of his time and other yacht designers. Of course the price of this lovely-to handle book is somewhat above that of some rubbishing paperback sold in a super-market. But the pleasure of owning a thick 495 page volume which will give hours of interest to successive generations makes it worth paying out. After all the purchase price is only one quarter the cost of a new inflatable dinghy, which will start leaking in a few year. In contrast the sensuous and mental joys of owning this lovely volume are endless. Ian Nicolson

Clyde 19/24 Class – 100 Years On

Members may recall seeing the fine yacht models that were on display during the ’08 Eight Metre Regatta. They formed attractive in-house displays and were the work of Gisella and Helmut Sharbaum, outport members from Germany. Also we have been subsequently updated on their building exploits. As reported last year the scale, remarkably moved up to 1:1. So a full-size Tringa was launched into Schlei Fiord in the Baltic in August 2010. Though much new technology has been introduced in over 100 years she is in shape and form identical to the Wm Fife design of 1898. However some special features and crew comforts are present in the new yacht. The strip planked hull is certainly lighter and stronger than any of the former 26 yachts of the class. Also electric auxiliary power is installed. It operates from a pack of four batteries in series and is a great convenience for manoeuvring in and out of congested marina berths. Though flush decked Tringa has sitting headroom, and this is largely thanks to her deep bilge. Other comforts are two rudimentary berths and a small stove that can produce coffee, toast and boiled eggs – surely enduring delights for a quiet mooring in early morn! Cruising in the Baltic has been undertaken and the new Tringa was the first of the class to make a landfall in a foreign port when she visited Denmark last summer It is remarkable that these members can produce such beautiful work in spite of their busy careers. The woodwork is of exceptional quality and compares well with the finest of cabinet making. 56


The project is an interesting addition to our club history which has been greatly served by the Clyde 19/24 Class History, written by Professor Teacher MD who was joint owner of the original Tringa. By first launching this yacht of Scottish design in Schlei Fiord there arises an intriguing connection with another British yacht albeit from the realms of yachting literature and set in the times of Professor Teacher’s Tringa. In 1904 Erskine Childers wrote what would be known as possibly the greatest sailing story ever. If you have not yet read the book you have a treat in store The “Riddle of the Sands” warned of the threat of German invasion of Great Britain by small craft to be mustered around the German Frisian Islands. The observers of this situation and the heros of the tale were two British Yachtsmen sailing the yacht Dulcibella. The connection with Tringa of 2012 is that she and Dulcibella both graced the beautiful waters of Schlei Fiord. It is in the Schlei that the story gets going and Childer’s characters, Davies and Carruthers first become ship mates – albeit tentatively! The Scharbaums would love to have Tringa on the Clyde and there are tentative plans afoot for an extended visit next year. She is likely to make the passage by truck and ferry. The Sharbaums would welcome suggestions as to economical ways of achieving this! Ian Broadley

RNCYC Photo Competition

1st - SLR - Angus Taverner

On the 8th February, the annual photo competition was judged by Neill Ross. This was carried out over a very educational evening when Neill tried to teach members what appeared to be the simplest techniques in improving amateurs in Photography. There was a varied selection of Photo entries shown. Each one was shown with various suggestions to improve the composition. After the talk, Neill picked the winners in the various categories. Hopefully everyone left feeling that they had learnt new ideas, and they should make a difference when the Photo Competition returns next year.

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.
