Nine boats turned out for the second of our Joint Passage Race series in conjunction with the Royal Forth. Very good starts by all led to some close racing to Channel Buoy 7, followed by a fast spinnaker leg behind Inchkeith before the wind died on the beat back. Race shortened at RFYC mark Z to be fair to the slower boats. Obviously when these decisions are made it wasn’t long before the wind filled in nicely!
The results for the Wilson Cup are:
- Misty Blue
The overall results for the Joint Passage Race are as follows:
- Misty Blue
- Wizz Too
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:

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
