Keystone Law IOM very kindly donated £500.00 to the charity in memory of their dear friend and colleague Charles Coleman. One of his colleagues said: 'Charles was always at his happiest whilst on a boat sailing through the waters'.
Charles was a highly regarded individual, and his passing is a shock to everyone that knew him. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this time.

A sea loch which flows south to open sea onto the Firth of Clyde, the Gare Loch is located 13 miles (21 km) northwest of Glasgow. The loch is 7 miles (11 km) in length and 1 mile (1.5 km) in width. It is separated from Loch Long to the west by the Rosneath Peninsula. The town of Helensburgh lies at its mouth, Greenock lies opposite and around the loch are the villages of Rhu, Shandon, Faslane,Garelochhead, Clynder and Rosneath.
The deep water of Gare Loch has been associated with the navy since World War II, when a major base was developed at Rosneath and used by the Americans to train for landings in North Africa and on D-Day. In the 1950s British battleships were mothballed in the loch and by the 1960s it became the principal base for the UK's submarine-borne nuclear deterrent. Trident submarines remain berthed atHM Naval Base Clyde (Faslane), the locus for regular peace protests.
Sailing for the Disabled is having a special Winter Social. There will be a special celebration that will be kept a surprise for now but you surely do not want to miss out on.
There will be lots of time to meet and chat with your fellow members, both old and new, whilst treated by a hot lunch with a variety of snacks including vegetarian. If you fancy sharing any of your home made cakes or deserts you are more than welcome, just let us know what you like to bring.
