Round Raasay Race

6th August 2022

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.

Come and race this summer 2022!

Come along in your boat just for the fun, or race to make your "opposition" crews sit up. If you fancy joining in and don’t have a boat contact us. Saturday (25th 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 26th June.
