Feeling the winter chill? Kirstie McDonald our new social secretary is off to a flying start. She has arranged to show the Six Nations rugby matches in the Clubhouse on the following dates –
2nd February – Scotland v Italy, Ireland v England (13.00 – 22.00)
9th February – Scotland v Ireland, Italy v Wales (13.00 – 22.00)

Even if you aren’t a big fan of rugby it’s a good chance to catch up with friends, share maintenance woes and plan for the season ahead. Bring the mini-me rugby fans -free entry refreshments available. Hopefully a few beers as well but that will be confirmed nearer the time. All supporters welcome and friendly banter encouraged!!
Email sent out gives contact details for Kirstie if you have any queries.
There’s lots of exciting things happening at Toward Sailing Club over the next few weeks.
YOU COULD SAVE A LIFE!
Toward Sailing Club have purchased a defibrillator with the help of the British Heart Foundation. It is positioned on the outside of the clubhouse and could be a life saver in this relatively remote part of the South Cowal peninsula. We are running a FREE CPR and Defibrillator training session on Sunday 30th April 2.00 – 4.00pm in the Clubhouse which is open to everyone in the community. Dougie Whyte, recently retired paramedic, will be leading the training. Refreshments available.
TSC Fun Day/Open Day
Our next Community Event is our Pirate Family Fun Day on Saturday 13th May 11.00 – 3.30pm in association with the RYA annual Push the Boat Out promotion to encourage as many people as possible to try out water based sports. Anyone coming down that day will be able to sign up for taster sessions in dinghies, sea kayaks, keel boats and rib rides for FREE. Open water swimmers will be there to talk about their activities in the area. Don you pirate gear and join us for a fun day with a bouncy castle, crafts for the wee ones and time to enjoy the beautiful views over the bay to Bute.
Toward sailing Club are holding this in partnership with the Toward Memorial Hall who are having a table top sale at the same time. It’s all part of South Cowal Community Festival celebrating what we have to offer and enjoy in the area. Coast Coffee are catering with Chouxmake’s Cakes and an ice cream van will be there too. Follow us on Facebook and on this website as we may add other information on this event.
