On Saturday we ran the 17th consecutive Euroyachts Jeanneau Fun Race. Fourteen Jeanneau yachts started the pursuit race to Colintraive off Largs Yacht haven in very light conditions. The wind almost died completely for the later starting, faster boats, enabling the Sun Rise 34 “Glorfinda”, the Sun Odyssey 40 DS “El Obied” and the Sun Odyssey 379 “Anne of Bookham” to build up a useful gap between them and faster boats. In the end however the excellently sailed Sun Fast 40 “Aztec” did just enough to pip “Glorfinda” on the shortened course finish line off Ardyne.
All of the boats motored to Colintraive for the traditional reception/prize giving at the Hotel. Thanks to all of the sailors, the SSI and CCC for start/finish respectively and to Patricia and her team at the Colintraive Hotel.
