Our near neighbours Chanonry Sailing Club held their official launch day on the 30th of November and The Skiffties where on hand to offer a hearty cheer as the ‘Chanonry Maid’ finally entered the Firth. After previous postponements due to poor weather she looked a picture as she slid in to the flat calm waters, flanked by ‘Zulu’ and ‘Esther’ from Ardersier. The sun shone brightly and those present where treated to a screening of the ‘Chanonry Maid’ build video in the sailing club clubhouse. Back on the water and mixed crews, including members from the Burghead and Colliston clubs, enjoyed the early afternoon conditions before ‘Zulu’ and our crack team of rowers headed back out in to the Firth and returned to home waters. Terrific weather, the company of good friends and a handsome new edition to the Moray Firth fleet. A good day all round.
Megan kindly took some nice photos of the day and they are on the website.
