Glencoe Sailing Regatta

The start of June saw Glencoe Boat Club have their annual Regatta.

A passage race from Oban to Onich Pier just across the water from the Hollytree is the first race. The day was blessed with good sailing conditions with a sunshine and reasonable wind.











Great to see kids having a go in the ideal sailing conditions.
















Some sails against a stunning background of the Ballachulish Bridge and the mountains of Ardgour

Peter Watt and Vaila looking well heeled....











Saturday saw ideal sailing conditions with both the larger keelboats and the sailing dingys have a great days racing.











The winner of the passage race on adjusted time was the interestingly named "Black Pig."





Everything was wrapped up with a dinner dance and prizegiving in Ballachulish hall with a traditional Scottish Ceilidh band.



All in all a great weekend in the spectacular sailing background of the Scottish Highlands.
