The report by the District Councillor to the May 2019 MYA Council meeting has been uploaded to the District Committee page.
14 Scottish skippers enjoyed a training day at Forfar Loch on Saturday the 27th April. The forecast was for rain in the first half of the morning clearing as the day progressed with a moderate easterly breeze which is exactly what transpired.
It was particularly encouraging to see some very new members having only taken up our sport in the past couple of months. Obviously the newer you are to radio sailing the more there is to learn but even the most experienced sailors took something away from the day.
Thanks to all who attended, those who contributed and to Forfar Sailing Club for opening up their main clubroom for us making for an ideal venue.
