An evening that had plenty of gusts, wind changes and the retirement of the lead boat (SmiJ continuing some recent bad luck) produced the following results. Personal handicaps have again been adjusted for use in the next White Sail on June 30.
- Misty Blue
What a great evening – nice wind, sunshine and some pretty close sailing! Back to the traditional staggered start this time and a refreshingly new course selected by the Race Officers. Would you believe 3 boats had elapsed times within 18 seconds of each other. Personal handicaps have been adjusted again and will be used for the next White Sail on 16 June.
The final results are noted below:
5. Kashangi II
Saturday 27 May – Sail, Run, Row
In conjunction with the Newhaven Coastal Rowers this eagerly anticipated fixture features sailors, runners and rowers come together in an exciting relay race. Whilst competitive this is a fantastic day out for the participants, onlookers and friends and family culminating in a BBQ and prize giving. Truly a great social occasion so why not come along and support one of the key events on the FCYC calendar.
Sunday 21 May is the first Joint Passage Race which sees us race round Inchkeith (and a few other marks!). This is also one of the Forth Inshore Group events so there should be a healthy turnout. Lets encourage the same from the Corinthians!
Full sailing instructions on the Forth Yacht Club Association website.
Good turnout for the first white sail event of the season. The conventional start appeared to go well (for most – oops!) and there was some close racing during the circuit. Good enthusiasm during the race and in the Bell Block afterwards. Congratulations to Zero Proof for coming out on top. Full results as follows:
- Zero Proof
- Kashangi II
- Silver Lining

A very close finish at the Road Bridge by all accounts with some blustery conditions to contend with along the way. Congratulations to Misty Blue again for coming out on top – it seems anything Eddie can do Brian can match!

The 2017 Sailing Season officially starts this Saturday with the Commodore’s Regatta followed by a BBQ in the yard. So let’s all dust those cob webs off and put all that winter refit work into practice and get out on the water and enjoy…
Bring along some food and drink for some post sail entertainment at the yard BBQ.
