Have YOUR say on a water sports plan

Skiffies 2019

THE Skiffies rowing event was a huge success last summer and the hope is that developing Stranraer as a top-flight water sports venue can drive the town and surrounding area forward. The Stranraer Water Sports Association Centre has a questionnaire designed to help plan the new moves. Says SWSA's Wendi Cuffe: "Given that Stranraer has an amazing location on the protected waters of Loch Ryan, a strong tourism appeal (with potential to develop an even more robust tourist industry at the heart of the Stranraer area) and a community that has shown it is keen to engage with water based activities the SWSA has identified a unique opportunity to develop a new and market-leading water sports training, activity and regatta activity centre. "The project team believe that there is a tremendous opportunity to develop a unique approach to getting people afloat, building enthusiasm and creating clubs for long term use. "Part of the feasibility study process is community engagement. We need to understand what you would like to do and how you would like to be involved, and in light of the current Covid-19 restrictions the team have prepared a short questionnaire - see link below - to capture peoples thoughts and ideas. Can we ask you to take a moment of your time to complete, please "Thank you for your support with this - closing date for completed questionnaires is Monday May 18. We ask you to share widely through your networks both locally, regionally, nationally and internationally." https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfcIBD2pZSkjGiYBZjzg0UUFMY1adMF_dx7qUeq8m5ZtrWeWw/viewform?usp=sf_link
