Weather reports showing uncertain wind conditions together with a general lack of confirmed participants would suggest that this event is postponed. The event will now be run on Saturday 6 October with a start time of 12 noon and the seasons wash up meeting at 2pm.
The last scheduled Friday White Sail race of the season had a new winner – well done Mark and Pam on Dorado. Apologies to Peter as a miscalculation awarded them a third which really should have been a second.
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.
