Sunday 21st July 2019 With a reasonable day forecast (albeit with no predicted wind whatsoever) members and guests gathered in the clubhouse at 09:30 hrs to discuss proposals for this latest Cruise in Company. We were pleased on this occasion to have the ‘C in C’ over a rising tide, so options for the day […]
In a change to the normal format of the ‘Cruise in Company’ events, the third ‘C in C’ of the 2019 season was to be a 3 day event. This event had been publicised well in advance and notes of interest had been received from several skippers. Six boats ultimately participated in the weekend:- Tidecatcher(Brian Robertson, Danny Coupar & David Scott), Solveig(Neil Moffat, […]
The second C in C of the 2019 season was, once again, to be held over a falling tide so the group assembled in the clubhouse at 10am to discuss possible options for the day. With a F3/4 south westerly forecast for the day, with possible light showers, a cruise up river (against the tide) […]
It was another beautiful day in Dubai as our taxi drew up at the DOSC (Dubai Offshore Sailing Club). (More on this later). We were meeting a friend of my daughter who was taking us for a sail in her Dufour 382. We left the marina at 1200 hours heading for a new small marina […]
This was the first C in C of the 2019 season. Although the forecast of showers and light variable winds was not particularly encouraging, we set off across the Forth hopeful that the day would be kind to us. As the cruise was over an ebb tide, and we were going to be out for […]

This was the final C in C of the 2018 season and, with a favourable forecast of sunshine and a westerly breeze, it was hopefully going to be an enjoyable day. On a bright sunny day with a rising tide there is nothing nicer to do than go on a leisurely sail to Aberdour and […]
The penultimate C in C of 2018 found us looking for somewhere to go across a split tide. With a reasonable day forecast, but with the wind predicted from SSW, we opted for a short cruise along the coast to Portobello. This is an often overlooked destination but it has much to offer because it […]
