    The cadet Regatta will run on the weekend of 10/11 September, and as always will be a fun event! The racing is short and sharp, giving everyone a chance to win, with lots of prizes available.

    You can sail your own boat or borrow a club boat. The club are trying to borrow some extra boats for the weekend, but still it is likely that demand will outstretch resources!

    May I invite you and the members of East Lothian Yacht Club to join us at Port Edgar for our Annual Yacht Regatta on the 17th/18th September. We have tried to cater for all sailors from the racing craft sailing  Olympic style course to the White Sail Class sailing "Round the Island" races. In the evening we have a "Jam session" (all budding musicians welcome) and a nautical quiz with prizes. Please find as attachments the NOR and poster giving details of the event

    We look forward to welcoming you to Port Edgar Yacht Club. Incidentally Edinburgh Leisure, one of the sponsors, have offered free berthing for the regatta.

    The Fifth Traditional Boat Muster takes place on 13 August 2011, and

    all club members are invited to sniff out a suitable boat and take part

    in what is a laid back day of friendship and appreciation for

    traditional craft.  “Traditional” is very loosely defined and all

    comers are welcome, but generally the boats that take part have one or

    more of the following features:  1) A gaff or yard  2) made of wood 

    3)  brown sails  4) skipper with a beard .  In the past the event has

    been enjoyed by crews in Drascombes, Shrimpers, Westerlies and

    character boats,  as well as the wooden and the old in the ELYC Fleet.


     The rough programme is as follows, with matters over which traditional

    boat sailors have no control shown in square brackets:

     

      1100 Rowing race in the fairway

     

     1215 Sailing Boats Start to Muster off Platcock

     

     1245 Parade of Sail

     

     1300 Sternchase

     

     1500 Cruise in Company

     

     [raft race in the bay 1530]

     

     [High Tide 1535]

     

     1800 Prize giving, Food (TBC), and Scuttlebutt in the ELYC Bar

     

    Please register your interest and send a brief description of your

    boat to Robbie Wightman by e mail:  paragon2@tiscali.co.uk      Sailing

    directions will be circulated to those taking part nearer the time. The

    rowing race is for any rowing boat or sailing boat that can be rowed by

    up to two oarsmen (ie, not intended to be for four man skiffs). 

    Members who are not taking part may still want to put the date in their

    diaries to come down and watch a different type of event going on.
