Club Members to the rescue

As a club, with few employed staff, we often rely on our members to step forward and help at hours of need.

Attached is a picture of the Anemometer at the club on Sunday. The picture showed gusts to almost Severe Storm 11.  However, an hour or so later it increased to a little passed 11.  It reached 105 km per hour or 58 knots.


Fearing potential disaster, Dylan, Paddy Angier and Ken Dougall went out in the rib and checked every Royal Forth boat still on a mooring in the harbour. They found 4 boats had chewed through a pennant each so they replaced the broken ones at the height of the storm and as darkness was falling. The rib had to be held in forward gear just to stand still beside the yachts. Once neutral was selected it blew off the yacht like a piece of polystyrene!

This pic may not show the fury of the storm, but Paddy had to cling to his mast on Border Maid after checking his pennant:

paddyThanks to Ken Dougall for the report and the pictures.
