Enjoy the ‘Fyne’ life at the Silvers Marine Scottish Series

THE Silvers Marine Scottish Series will welcome more than 100 racing yachts at Tarbert Loch Fyne from May 27 to May 30 2016. Set on one of the most beautiful lochs in Scotland, the 42nd Scottish Series, is much more than just a yacht racing event – it has something for everyone both on and off the water. The buzz of the event in the village of Tarbert and across at Portavadie provides a magnet of attraction for both locals and visitors alike and makes it one of the busiest weekends in the year for the area and a destination in itself to enjoy. For many it’s a ‘must do’ weekend in the UK racing and social calendar. Organised by Clyde Cruising Club (CCC) with Silvers Marine, as the title sponsor, the series offers a mix of handicap racing including white sail classes. Passage races, a white sail cruise in company from Largs, family and cruiser classes and the Round Inchmarnock race on Sunday gives a choice of racing for the entire event.

Tarbert Harbour

Tarbert Harbour Authority (THA) hosts the fleet at this pretty west coast port. Donna Mallen, Business Development Officer of THA, said they expected in the region of 130 racing boats as well as round 50 committee, press and support vessels.

She said:’ The Scottish Series kickstarts the season and puts a lot of money into the village which is essential to our economy.’ Harbour master Donald McAllister added: ‘We look forward to welcoming the fleet and hope everyone has fair winds and sunshine for racing.’ The THA team has a rough berthing plan to adhere to on a first come, first served basis. A new pontoon addition has expanded the berthing area and is now described as ‘second to none’.
