New season, (re)new membership

Dear Members,

Following recent government announcements and guidance from RYA Scotland I am delighted to confirm that we expect Club sailing to resume at the beginning of April.

As you would expect there will be some restrictions in place and these will be communicated to all members. We know that these will need to be reviewed continually as the rules and guidance are revised, however we will keep you updated throughout the season.

We would like to invite you to rejoin the Club by completing your membership renewal using the online form and paying by BACS

Membership runs from 1st April to 30th March.

Members are welcome to return their boats to Forfar Loch any time in the next few weeks in line with government travel guidelines.

There will soon be an opportunity for you to offer any further thoughts and suggestions of what you would like from your Club.

I look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks and enjoying some great sailing this season.

FSC work parties Hi All.. it’s that time of the year… but with a covid difference! As we can’t be within 2 meters of each other at present it will make work parties less social, but more flexible as you can do your bit at a time to suit you  rather than on a specific date… as long as it’s by the end of April at the latest, but preferably by 11th April if possible when the first weekend sailing happens.

 This is what needs doing.. all tasks should be achievable by one person in one day or 2 half days (undercoat needs to dry!)

1. Repaint East toilet Emulsion and Gloss
2. Repaint West toilet Emulsion and Gloss
3. Reputty  and External Paint South facing window frames (wire brush, sand  undercoat and gloss to a high standard)
4. Internal paint Race Box Emulsion and Gloss
5. touch up all external brown paint and presently grey steel on verandas with brown. 

All materials will be available.
 Please let the club know what task(s) you would like to do  and when ASAP and subject to first come I’ll get you started (or contact Tony directly).


The weather starts to get milder, dryer and we start to see some lifting of restrictions. Soon we might be able to get back on the water, even if this is in small groups or families. This means that the clubhouse and jetties are needing attention. We have identified some jobs that need doing, some small, others big. Some of these have been already promised to be done by members, others are still vacant. If you feel that you want to get out of the house and do a bit of manual labour in aid of the club, give us the heads up or contact Tony. He will gladly let you know what can or need to be done.
