Part of the 2017 Largs Regatta Week

GinFest and Cumbraes Weekend

29 August 2017

The annual Cumbraes Weekend in the 2017 Largs Regatta Week was blessed with some of the best sailing weather all summer.

After all the windy wet weekends to sail in warm sunshine with perfect wind was a joy to all the competitors who had come from all over the west of Scotland to compete in this annual festival of racing and social fun. The event is organised jointly by Largs Sailing Club, Fairlie Yacht Club and Largs Yacht Haven.

Keelboat racing on Saturday took place at the north end of Cumbrae where three races were achieved in the light conditions. The dinghies sailing in the Largs Channel achieved four rounds.

On Sunday's Round Cumbrae Race the keelboat fleet sailed a figure of eight course whilst the dinghy fleet successfully sailed round Great Cumbrae.

The overall winner of the Enterprise Ayrshire Rosebowl for the best performance over the weekend was Brian Kelly and Lorna Dryburgh in their Merlin Rocket.

For those who weren't taking part in the racing, the first ever Regatta GinFest took place in the Regatta Marquee. With over 150 visitors sampling a range of boutique gins from all over the world, the event was deemed a big success! Thanks to Geraldo's of Largs for their organisation!
