There are now 3 DCBs resident in Scotland and recently two of them were racing at Tummel Week. I was approached by one of them who suggested organising an event at North Berwick (East Lothian Yacht Club). This is quite possible to do in conjunction with the ELYC regatta which is usually held in early June. It would be really good if we could get sufficient numbers to get our own start and then we could make it the Scottish Championship and a Dinghy Shack event.

North Berwick is just a few miles up the A1 from Newcastle and is easily accessible from the south coast. The sailing is on the sea but does not normally require a long sail out. Launching is easy off a sandy beach. With Global warming temperatures in the 20s can be expected and the water is renowned as the warmest in the North Sea! It is a big holiday area so there is lots for any none sailors to do if you want to bring the whole family. This would be an extra event if there is sufficient interesting not replacing Annandale or Solway.

Another event that people may be interested in is Tummel Week which is held in the last full week in July. This is a fun week with lots of fun things going on besides the sailing (which is fairly relaxed). It is especially good for young families. Camping is available on site and camper vans and caravans can be accommodated. Loch Tummel is in the heart of the Highlands in the shadow of the 3000ft Schiehallion (photo below).

Please post here or contact me (details in the handbook) if you would be interested in attending these events
