Scottish dinghy sailors across twenty four dinghy classes took part in the RYA Scotland Champion of Champions Trophy at Largs SC over the weekend of 21-22 October. This unique event sees the Scottish Champions from quite widely different classes of boat compete against each other under the Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system.
The gusty east wind on Saturday, and the stiff NW'ly on Sunday, gave the race committee and competitors challenging conditions, but 4 races were completed.
The title was retained for a third year by the National 18 Ultra three man crew, helmed by Stuart Urquart and crewed by his brother Richard Urquart and Phil Hermiston from Findhorn YC. Nigel Lynn and Alan Nesbitt were the highest placed Largs SC competitors, 7th overall, in their Formula 18 catamaran.
Many thanks to all the competitors, and volunteers ashore and afloat, who make events like this happen.
