Arran Junior Sailing Club

 

 

Arran Yacht Club is also the home of Arran Junior Sailing Club. AJSC was set up to teach sailing to children of Primary 7 upwards at school on the Island.

It has over 60 cadets each year and operates during the summer term and through the first half of the autumn term, It has rescue boats and a fleet of dinghies from small Taz  2 man starter boats through Picos, 2 man performance Feva XL’s and even a couple of Wayfarers and a GP14 as well as a double stacking trailer to support off island racing.

Arran Junior Sailing Club is a totally separate, self-sufficient organisation with its own financial arrangements and committee, many of whom are also involved with the Yacht Club.

This year Rory & Neil Hunter won the RYA Scottish 29ER Zone Championship in Largs.

Arran Junior Sailing Club’s championship was held in September. Ten of Arran’s young sailors enjoyed two days of close fought racing for the legendary Shemozzle trophy.  Day one brought light, shifty conditions and the sailors struggled for consistency in their results, Iain Logan came out on top scoring three firsts and a third.  Day two brought totally different conditions with winds gusting 20 knots.  Peter Gilson thrived on the conditions scoring four firsts.  Iain Logan scored two seconds and two thirds.  This meant that only a couple of points separated the top two boats going into the last race.  As the racing continued it got progressively windier which meant that before the last race was completed, race committee Neil Hunter and Scott Currie had to abandon the race.  The final points tally for races sailed gave this year’s Junior Club Championship to Iain Logan.  The novice trophy for the most improved junior was given to Mathew Tetlow.  Well done to all the sailors that competed
