Thursday evening sessions (coordinated by Ian Cameron) will start on Thursday 20 May and meet at the new PEYC Clubhouse at 6pm. These will take place at 6pm on:
Thursday 20 May.
Thursday 3, 10, 17 June.
Thursday 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 July.
Thursday 5, 19, 26 August.
Thursday 2, 16, 30 September.
Due to tides (insufficient water for an evening sail) there will be afternoon sails on the following dates:
Thursday 27 May, 24 June, 12 August, 9 September, 23 September.
To get involved an email is sent out to the PEYC cruising Google group on a Monday evening by Ian Cameron or one of the cruising sub-committee. This will be an invitation to sail. The organiser will check how many yachts are available and allocate crew to boats. Crew will usually know in advance which boat they will be sailing on. The aim is to mix experienced crew with new sailors. We meet at the clubhouse 6pm sharp, Edinburgh traffic is worse than you think so please leave plenty of time to travel. If you are new to PEYC this year we will be in touch to see what experience you have.
Two dates later in the season will be include women only boats – female skippers and crew. It is recognised that men will also wish to sail those dates, and will be accommodated on the non-female skippered boats.
Please note that all Thursday sessions depend on skipper / boat availability. Paid up PEYC members will get berth priority. It is up to each skipper on the day to make a judgement regarding wind strength and weather conditions. Should there be a cancellation at the last minute, we will make every effort to inform crew.
