FYCA HANDICAP SEMINAR

The FYCA Handicap Committee were tasked with improving the existing handicap system. To this end the handicap committee have defined a Progressive Handicap System for use on the Forth. This is a development from the old Portsmouth Yardstick Scheme. To explain what has been changed and to present the provisional handicaps for 2016 we are holding a FYCA Handicap Seminar. This will also give a chance for any discussion and for questions.

You are all welcome to the FYCA Handicap Seminar on Thursday 25th February at 7:30pm in the Royal Forth Yacht Club on Middle Pier in Granton.

This will be of particular interest to those racing in open events on the Forth.

COLLAPSE OF STONE WALL OF STIRLING TOWN QUAY

The Stirling town Quay 15m downstream from the sheet steel piled section has seen a substantial collapse.  A third of the width of the park behind has been washed into the river.  The landward side has been fenced off.  The sheet steel piled section remains accessible and usable,  A fender board is recommended.

One assumes that the rest of the quay will now be sheet steel piled so temporary closure may be on the cards while work is in progress.

DUNBAR VISITORS BERTHING

Members may like to know that the visitors' berth is now on the east wall on the north side of the bridge. It dries approximately 2 hours each side of HW.

For most visitors this will mean berthing where one can and then moving to the visitors berth when water permits. The deepest water, the first berth one can reach on entry, is below the castle so this berth is busy.

It may be possible to make arrangements to berth temporarily below the castle to make an early departure to carry the flood tide up the Forth.

The new harbour master is Gary Lawson. Bob Clunas has retired.
