A great turnout today for the first in the 2020 winter talks, with over 50 members and guests, so it was standing room only in the HK Room! The topics included by boat to the Kelpies on the Forth and Clyde Canal, Ship Design (why do these massive cruise ships not capsize?), the Fife Yachts (visiting us 4-12 June), and the Field Studies Centre on Cumbrae.
Next month, Sunday 15th March, subjects range from long term boat ownership to the amazing story of member Daniel Smith skippering Derry/Londonderry to second place overall in the Clipper Round the World race!
In April (date to be confirmed), there will be a liferaft demonstration, a repeat of last year's demo (see the video here), plus other topics to be arranged.
All members and guests welcome - and why not have lunch in the club before the talks?
More generally, other winter plans include updating the cruising notes (see here), and asking members for further updates, plus making a list of members' boats available through the office, so we can identify fellow LSC members when out and about. The list will only include those club members who have given their consent under the club's GDPR policy.
