Arran 2019 Results!

Prize for the neatest writing at a 2019 regatta goes to Arran.

Excellent conditions for an excellently hosted regatta. The sun shone and a gentle breeze made for slight variations in the conditions. Holy Island made for a dramatic backdrop. Arran were joined by fellow Islanders from Islay and Cumbrae, and from most of their Ayrshire neighbours…… FOCCRS, Carrick, Renegade, Troon and Prestwick. Royal West made up the Clyde contingent, with Queensferry and North Berwick coming through from the East.

Saturday racing was a course of around 1750m, starting with a 700m start to the first mark, a port turn for around ninety degrees, then back in towards the shore, with second port turn. Then it was a good 60 strokes to the finish line. Crews were sent off in two waves of five boats each, with the winner ultimately being determined by the times.

Above are the Saturday results. In the long race on the Sunday, Firth of Clyde CRC took line honours for the second year in a row. Sunday did of course come after the Saturday night, which featured a BBQ with quite possibly the best food ever to have been served up at a regatta, followed by a fair bit of dancing. All together a fantastic, welcoming regatta to remind us of what a great community we are part of. Thank you Arran.
