The Scottish Series

26th - 29th May 2017

Silvers Marine Scottish Series

The organizing authority of the event, the Clyde Cruising Club, is delighted with the longevity of this event and appreciates all who have supported it over the years. This is an incredible achievement and there is definitely something special about Scottish Series that keeps people coming back.

The event began through enthusiastic sailors, in 1975, wanting to race their boats combining challenge with enjoyment. Passage racing combined with Olympic triangles created variation and something for everyone. This is still the vision today. The village of Tarbert has welcomed the event since 1977, offering a sheltered anchorage and plenty of bars to exchange tales after a day at sea! Onshore entertainments and good craic, influenced by the Irish contingency, has become as much a part of the event as the sailing.

The race programme will include the opening ‘Clyde Challenger Race’ from Largs for white sail, family class and cruisers on Friday 27th May. Other races will be conducted in Loch Fyne using race course format of triangles, windward -leeward or alternative variations. The event will conclude with its prizegiving in Tarbert on Monday 30th May.

Sailors return year after year to this prestigious yachting event to enjoy the mix of performance sailing with the familiarity of the venue. For the efforts of a small village and a team of Clyde Cruising Club volunteers, there are an incredible amount of special memories associated with Scottish Series.

If you have been before remember great times and come back for more. If you are new to the sport come and discover it for yourself. For non-sailors come and simply enjoy the atmosphere.
