PSPS Summer Charter

Hi. Thought I would post a few pictures taken on the PSPS Scottish Branch Summer charter on 11th July 2008. I’ve been involved with Waverley and the PSPS for a few years now. What started as a sail on Waverley a few years back for the first time as an adult has become now a major hobby (some may suggest obsession). People get different things out of PSPS membership and involvement with the boat. For me, involvement has resulted in me meeting some great people and getting the chance to unwind at weekends, enjoying a relaxing sail with beautiful scenery.

What didn’t seem a particularly promising day weather wise turned into a beautiful evening.

This is one of the things I think is special about Waverley-people getting the chance to meet up and chat.

It’s also a fantastic place to enjoy a drink as well (from a cup of tea to a variety of stronger drinks) – I think in Nicola and Alison’s case it may be cider.

Talking of enjoying a drink – one of the new features on Waverley this year is the setting up of the Maltman bar. From here you can enjoy a wide range of Malt Whiskies and bottled ales – served by some friendly crew.

After a successful evening with good numbers on board, we returned to Greenock – watching the sun go down.

So if you’ve never sailed on Waverley or sailed once as a child – why not come on board and see if you find the experience as enjoyable as I do.
