The lads and lassies down at Greenock are organising an Event for the charity "Help for Heroes" on Sunday 25th September 2010.
We are intending to hold a sailathon for the yacht section, each yacht being sponsored for doing laps of the dam and being crewed on a buddy system in order to keep the boats in the water while one crew member has a bit of time off.

The scale section will be putting on a display/sailing models. To this end we invite any interested party to come along either to crew a yacht or bring their own boat for sailing/display. Hopefully the Glasgow lads will turn up with their warships to help keep the public interested.

We are also hoping to have members of the Armed Forces attending, bringing with them various bit and bobs of equipment.
So far the Royal Logistics Corps have agreed to pull out all the stops to be here and Faslane will also be sending over some Royal Marines and MOD Police. Strathclyde Police Marine Unit have agreed to come along as long as they have no priority calls.

Hopefully we can raise some serious money for what is a very good cause.

Bit of an update, most of the Army units that we have approached have been unable to attend due to budgetry constraints..........No money in the kitty.........A political arguement that I wont get into.

However the local Marines are pulling out all the stops to attend.

The Glasgow warship lads have promised to attend and put on a good dispaly. We have also been able to arrange for some entertainment throughout the day, everything from a drumming ape to line dancing.

If you've got a model, want to sail it, have some fun and help raise cash for Help for Heroes, then come along and join in.
