My E-Boat Class Association Pages give
information about the boats, the association, safety
aspects, diary of events, race results and
sales/wanted. However I handed on my E-Boat in
2016 (in the family) but am hoping some other current
owner might take on and update the E-Boat pages.
Mean time current info can be found on FaceBook.
I love sailing and I was* a qualified RYA Senior Instructor for Keelboats and Dinghies (to Level 5 of the older syllabus) and a member of the St. Andrews & Anstruther Sailing Clubs. I have sailed and owned numerous dinghies, mono & multi-hulls and additionally sailed a few cruiser/racers over the past years.*lack of time has meant I have allowed the qualifications to lapse.
I have been motorcycling on the road
since the age of 16. I became a part time
examiner with the Institute of Advanced Motorists in
1986. However when I retired from the
police in 2005 I was offered the IAM's Motorcycle
Staff Examiner position, covering Scotland and
northern England... a position I enjoyed and held
until 31 MAR 2014. I am not a track fanatic, but
I enjoy touring at home & in Europe and I have
ventured into Trials to spend more 2-wheel time with
I got my first pedal-cycle in the 60s
and even back then I enjoyed cycling wooded trails,
probably more than the roads... even if there was
light traffic. Now the roads are so busy I only
use them to join up the off road trails, when there
are no alternatives. However, now in my 60s I
get some battery assistance for the tougher climbs.
I have always been a car enthusiast and have owned a variety of vehicles over the years from MG's to family type cars and a Land Rover. I now have a 1977 MG Midget and 2004 Smart Roadster to eat into my free time/cash.
The main constraint associated with my pursuits was always work... but having completed 30 years as a Police Officer I am now off to try other things and spend a bit more time on my pursuits!
I was introduced to stage lighting at
the start of 3rd year at Kirkcaldy High School*
(1970)... and have been interested / involved ever
since with the odd period off due to work commitments.
