Sailing Yachts at Faslane.

#1
Can anyone tell me if a tiny little sailing Yacht called “ Fiasco†is still berthed at Faslane Naval Base? Have very fond memories of sailing it whilst try to dodge Submarines. :lol:

Can't tell you if Fiasco is still there but many happy day run-outs in the Bosuns at Faslane during the mid-80s. Used to take the jennies out and scare them half to death, tacking up and down the loch. Used to go over to the hotel on the opposite side (lochside hotel?) for an afternoon beverage. Used to take em out with a Chief Tiff called 'The Goose' McAngus. Wonder if he's still about?

Clynder Hotel perhaps? Relatively easy to reach from the beach and certainly on the West Side of the Gareloch a couple of miles down from Faslane. It'd gone though, the last time I was in Clynder a couple of years ago.

The Clynder Hotel was too far up the loch . The one I think they mean is the one that you go past not long after leaving Garelochhead going towards Clynder------------its got a nice easy mooring jetty on it and the beer and food is quite good.Its among trees so you have to look for it.

Was the "Sailing Officer" in Barrow and got a Drascombe Coaster from Faslavatory on Coniston. Used it to "run in" the Gemini outboard, for something that was only supposed to have an 8hp. 40hp didnt half make it shift
