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

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.
