250th Anniversary Cruise 

 

     On Sunday 10 June 2108 we will be celebrating 250 years since the beginning of construction of the Forth and Clyde Canal. What better way to celebrate than a flotilla of boats? The plan is to leave from Southbank Marina no later than 1100hrs as Hillhead Bridge is booked to be opened for 1115hrs. We hope to cruise to Auchinstarry if Twechar Bridge can be opened.   There will be limited spaces available on our boats and a packed lunch is advisable. For more information contact Christine: -- Email    secretary@forthandclyde.org.uk   for more information on participation.
