In May the scenic west coast village of Tarbert, Loch Fyne will once again welcome yachts for 4 days of competitive racing. Why not join us as we participate in the white sail (or cruising) class. Taeping will participate in the Friday and Sunday passage races. The event will begin on Thursday at 10:00 am when you join the yacht at Kip Marina. We will then have a day of compulsory race training before joining the pre race social gathering at Largs marina.
Friday will see us race from Largs to Tarbert with the white sail fleet before enjoying a crew dinner. Saturday will see us head out for some non competitive sailing on Loch Fyne and perhaps some fine tuning of our race techniques. Sunday will see a return to racing as we participate in the round Inchmarnock race. Monday will then see us sail back to Kip Marina.
Event organisers The Clyde Cruising Club will once again be hosting a number of shore side activities as well as the fantastic programme of events for yacht sailors.
Note as we will be racing on two of the days you should be comfortable with the increased level of effort normally required during a competitive sailing event. It will be hard work!
