Round Raasay Race: 25th September 2021

 

Round Raasay 2021 was an excitement from start to finish! Challenging forecast and tides resulted in an altered course for the 5 boats taking part.  Incredibly, there were only 87 seconds separating 1st and 2nd place, over the 14-mile course!
Results: 1st "Weej" Skipper- David Kirk
2nd "Callisto" Skipper- Tim Wear
3rd "Alchemist" Skipper- Cristien MacLaren
2 other boats, "Catherine Laird" (Skipper Calum MacDonald) and "Janita II" (Skipper Hugh MacDonald) both retired from race due to equipment failure.
Well done, all! It was brilliant to see so many boats and crew out despite the grim weather!
Thanks to Hugh MacDonald, Iain Galbraith and Elaine Ferguson for photographs.

Midsummer 2021

In an effort to appeal to all keelboat sizes we intend to run the Midsummer in the Minch social "race" during Friday afternoon and evening arriving in Gairloch Friday night (25 June). Come along in your boat just for the fun, or race to make your "opposition" crews sit up.  If you fancy joining in and dont have a boat cntact us.  Saturday (26th June) there will be a regatta in the bays and around the islands and buoys of Gairloch for those who wish, or just a visit to the local area. A full social and race-filled (for those who want it) weekend with a Minch prize, a Regatta prize and overall event prize.  Return to Portree or wherever you hale from in Skye Sunday 27th June
