An excellent day at Forfar Loch! Great organisation, great racing and great spirit amongst the skippers. A real pleasure to participate in the event. Well done and huge thanks to Tayside RSC’s race team under the direction of Race Officer Boyd Baird.

The final race in the 2019 Scottish District IOM Travellers series was hosted by Tayside RSC at their home waters of Forfar Loch on the 5th October 2019 with Ali Law (Buchanness) acting as Race Officer. Forfar Sailing Club opened up their excellent facilities and provided sustenance throughout the day for the competitors and race team which was much appreciated.
Forfar Loch did live up to its reputation for providing great close racing but a bit more breeze on the day would have been good.

Steve Taylor has forwarded a notice with regards the SD collection for Bart’s Bash at the IOM Woodies on 14th September 2019. This event fell over the weekend 14th/15th September with MYA Districts given free reign on what they wished to do.
As this coincided with the 2019 MYA Scottish District IOM Wooden Championship where we have a good cross section of the district sailing, it was decided that we would have a collection from all those attending. The Competitors stepped up to this and managed to raise a grand total of £62.60 over the course of a blustery but dry day
These monies will be forwarded to the Andrew Simpson Foundation as part of the Scottish District’s support of this worthy cause.
