This Weeks Sailing……Cancelled

Please note that the Bass Rock Race and Dunbar Music Festival Cruise this weekend have been cancelled by the Sailing Committee.
However to compensate for any disappointment can I draw your attention to the extra event which is proposed for Saturday 29th September – the Commodore’s Closing Regatta. Starting at 3pm for around an hour this will be a parade of sail and celebration of the season and will be followed by a BBQ (weather dependant) and a quick chat about how the season has gone and any changes you would like to make for next season.

Bell Rock Race Results

Five yachts took part in the overnight race from Granton to the Tay.  As the day approached there was much debate about the conditions and potential course alterations.  In the end it was felt prudent not to venture out to the Bell Rock and effectively go straight to the finish at the mouth of the Tay.  Most yachts had an exhilarating sail overnight to join Lady Nadonna who cruised up the previous day.  Many a good tale was told over beer for the next two nights at the Royal Tay’s Ale Festival before a rather wet sail home on the Sunday.
1. Misty Blue
2. Joint Venture (FCC)
3. Eclipse
4. SmiJ
5. Kashangi II
Our thanks go to Frank for organising and the Royal Tay for their exceptional hospitality.
