Get your copy of CRSC’s magazine!

The new edition of CLYDE STEAMERS has just been published, and paid-up CRSC members get their copy free. If you want one and are not yet a member, please sign up for the introductory £10 membership offer.

You wont regret it — you’ll get your copy of CLYDE STEAMERS immediately! Packed with fabulous photos and insightful articles, it cannot be bought on the open market.

The 56-page magazine includes three articles on the pioneering 1964 trio of Hebridean car ferries, including a diary of MV Columbas 1980 visit to St Kilda and an interview with Captain Trevor Bailey of Hebridean Princess ex Columba.

There are also articles on how the 1966 Seamens Strike affected the Western Isles, the problems of Clyde steamer management in the 1960s, steamers at the Cowal Games and what it was like to work on the famous paddler Jeanie Deans — plus much more! Contributing authors include Graeme Hogg, Lawrence Macduff, Fraser MacHaffie, Iain MacLeod and Finlay McKichan.

Later this month members will receive CRSCs other must-have publication, REVIEW 2014 — a comprehensive survey of Scottish coastal shipping over a calendar year in words and pictures.

We also have some fabulous spring offers, open to non-members too, including a set of vintage colour photos from the Dr Joe McKendrick Collection and an exciting Arran/Kintyre excursion. Details of these will be circulated shortly.
