Last Sunday saw between 75 and 90 people try water sports during the RYA day for Push The Boat Out, a national event to try and encourage people to take up water sports.

MP Richard Arkless and Emma Harper MSP took to the water for a trial.

A new group, Stranraer Water Sports Association, has also been recently formed to support the development of water sports in the area.

At the helm is a very keen dinghy sailor, David Davis, supported by a committee with representation of most of the water sports presently using Loch Ryan including dinghy sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boards, sub aqua, water skiing, jet skiing, kite surfing and sea fishing.
