25 May 2019Push The Boat Out 2019

Saturday 25th May Gairloch Boat Club offered Taster Sessions on Dinghies & the Gairloch Skiff "Longa".
Weather - overcast with drizzle and little wind.
Perfect for those trying it for the first time.
Lots of GBC volunteers turned out to support the event for which we are all very grateful.
There was an abundance of baking including pancakes, tea and coffee were on offer.
For taster sessions we had a total of 5 folk.

Thanks to Nicky Hayes for lending us her gazebo. It meant we could be outside the Club House in the dry!  Thanks also to Peter and Dyllis for taking folk out in their Wayfarer despite the often becalmed conditions, and to Bob who provided safety cover & a ferry service to the dinghies.
