Royal Burgh of Kinghorn - for residents and visitors alike

See the attached poster for details of how the Club works and how it helps our Community Centre.

 2011 “Come & Try Day” a wonderful experience in May.

 KLUG consists of the many clubs that use the loch on a regular basis.  These are canoeists, sailing club, carp fishermen, walkers, birdwatchers and landowners from around the loch.  The group first came together 10 years ago and its first task was to construct rafts to float on the loch to take the barley straw.  Since then the group has successfully built a new jetty and soon hopes to look at making some floating islands to give some birds their own safe nesting places.  

 KLUG held  its fourth annual “Come and Try” day when everyone is welcome to come along and find out if they would like to take up a new hobby.

For a history of the loch see the Environment page.

Lots of fun for one and all on a bright sunny day interrupted by occasional heavy stormy showers. Only problem was it was too windy for the inexperienced to go out of the bay, but of course, that was great for those who dared the dinghy sailing.

Youngsters were out in the canoes right up to 5pm and even after that some hardy teenagers went for a swim in the bay.

We also tried out our new work boat and it was just the ticket.

Kinghorn Lifeboat held its annual Open Day on Saturday, 16th July at the Lifeboat Station on Kinghorn Harbour Beach.

The Open Day, which is the  highlight of the fundraising calendar in Kinghorn featured a number of attractions including stalls, amusements and a rescue demonstration by the lifeboat.

Despite being wet in the early morning and with very heavy showers in the evening, the hundreds of visitors that attended had a great day out with occasional sunshine, a lot of heavy skies and warm weather.

Over £4000 was raised by the day and we can look forward to another great day in October with the “Spooky Walks” to herald Halloween.

See the Lifeboat website for a full report.
