New roof for the sailing school

11 March 2010

Last week, just moments before a heavily snow laden north-easterly gale hit, we put the finishing touches on the new sailing school roof. We now have a clear, dry and weather-proof space to use for the storage of equipment; changing rooms for sailors; an indoor teaching area; and a place to sit eat and lunch and warm up after a morning on the water.

Making the most of good weather conditions to get the old roof offThe design follows from Steve Husband’s original construction, and indeed utilises the walls he erected back along. We’ve increased the strength and rigidity of the structure with a good number of 4 by 2s and re-sheeted the roof with translucent fibre glass, thus retaining the light and airy feel of the place, but with the added benefit of keeping everything dry!

Come and see it for yourself; weather allowing, we hope to be on the water from early May with the local Coigach kids, from which point we’ll also be offering fun days and the more structured RYA dinghy sailing qualifications and power-boating courses.
