Small Craft Group Resources

The Small Craft Group and MT&NG publish a great newsletter, covering everything you need to know on the water. Download your copy of Fairway here.

Fairway is the RIN SCG and MT&NG members Newsletter that is published twice a year, in the Spring and Autumn. Recent editions, i.e those less than two years old, are only available to members to download. Older editions are available to both members and non-members to download.

As this is a valuable resource the RIN SCG has been looking at ways in which to make past articles in Fairway more easily traceable and accessible to both members and non-members. With this in mind, as a first step, a chronology of the main past articles deemed to be of particular interest has now been completed for all the editions of Fairway that are currently held in electronic format right up to the current edition. If any member holds a paper back copy of Editions 1 - 13, please could they contact the SCG Committee via the Membership Secretary at RIN HQ, so that we can complete the digest and arrange for these missing copies to be uploaded to the RIN website.

In the longer-term, it is intended to bookmark the articles within each individual publication, so that members and non-members alike will be able to navigate directly to the article that they are seeking to read.

With these changes, it is anticipated that readers will be provided with a more flexible, valuable and time-saving resource, particularly for those wishing to research past articles for educational purposes.
