Morvern Watersports Club

Thank you to Morvern Watersports Club who are based by the Harbour and who have kindly contributed the following article about their recent news.

Morvern Watersports Club were delighted to recently be awarded a substantial grant from the Highland Council Community Regeneration Fund of £13,800 which has been used to purchase new equipment to help the club grow and to help secure it's future.  

Together with £2000 match funding from the club’s own funds, the club have purchased and taken delivery of a Rigiflex Powerboat with 9.9hp Mercury Outboard, to be used as an essential safety boat while club activities are underway, 3 stand up paddleboards, 3 sit on top kayaks , 3 sit in touring kayaks complete with spraydecks and 12 bouyancy aids. Much of the clubs existing equipment was dated and had originally been gifted to the club, so this injection of brand new equipment to the club was very well received.

The club held an open day on Saturday 30th March to launch the new powerboat and Paddlesports,  and enjoyed a good turnout from the local community.  The club, which has over 50 members, is looking forward to hosting another event as part of Morvern Games and Gala week and is in the planning stages for this. If you are interested in joining the club please contact and follow our facebook page for details of upcoming events and open days.
