Hello from one ‘former’ racer……… to all current and potential racers out there!
Why not have a look at joining us for ‘The Scottish Series 2024’ from the 24th to 27th May?
Following on from a successful event run in May this year by my colleague Jamie McGarry, I have taken the helm for SS24 and, with an enthusiastic team behind me, am putting plans in place. We are making provision for 150 boats next year and will provide racing in 3 distinct fleets – IRC, One design and CYCA. It’s our intention to do all we can to attract competitors from beyond the Clyde and we know that to do so, we have to ensure that our offer makes the travelling worthwhile.
In this endeavour we plan to enhance the quality of the IRC and One design racing by ensuring that courses are set and adjusted to give a quality Olympic experience while minimising the time between races. We will release further details on how we intend to do this prior to issuing the NOR and opening the event registration process.
In CYCA we will offer a completely different experience based on competitive costal racing round established or laid marks…… or perhaps an island or two. We will be taking steps to attract more white sail competitors to join us, and we will be offering a ‘try racing’ experience to those of you who are mainly content to cruise but would like the chance to ‘experience’ the thrill and camaraderie of a serious regatta.
Alongside the action on the water, we are working closely with the Tarbert Harbour Associations to bring you an exhilarating shoreside social experience together with daytime activities to entertain land-based friends and family.
While I may be desperate to tell you of all the detailed plans, doing so would only spoil the build-up PR. So, all I’ll do for now is encourage you to ‘Log Interest’ on the SS24 site and pencil the dates in the diary.
My team, and the CCC office, will be delighted to receive your enquiries or to offer you assistance in any way they can……… just get in touch through the ‘contact us’ section of the website.
We need you there to make the event a success!
