An adventure like no other…

Get ready for 2020 the year of Coast and Water and help us celebrate all that happens around our coast. As we said during the summer we were asked for feedback on the format this should take and we have looked and listened to what you had to say and now have the start of what can only be described as a massive undertaking pulling it all together. We intend to bring yachting back to the Clyde and replicate the heyday of yachting that made the Clyde famous as sailing ground for everything from small day boats to the big yachts that are now classics.

Times change and we intend to change with them to ensure that this is an event that is fully inclusive and involves as many different activities that use our coast and the water. Already we have had great expressions of interest from the ‘Diving’ Kayaking – Coastal Rowing – Motor Boating – Windsurfing sectors to name but a few.

It’s not all going to be just on the Clyde either and a series of planned events which will take place around our coastline which should serve as a starting point to promote Scotland over the three years – highlighting what we have to offer the rest of the World as a Island. A steering group is being setup with invited representation to allow a short period of planning before increasing the scope of the work to be done. If your are interested in what we are doing then join the newsletter for regular updates. if you are a sailing club an individual or an organisation sign up to find out how to get involved.
