Cumbrae 5 Series – Race Report

In stark contrast to the glorious conditions of the previous week, Thursday night’s racers were greeted by little wind, heavy drizzle and poor visibility. As a result only three hardy dinghy sailors worked up the enthusiasm to actually go afloat. Fiona Mackay led the way in a club Topper while Dave Baird-Dean crept ahead of wife, Kriss. After a shortened course it was Fiona who finished first both on the water and on handicap while Kriss claimed second place after Dave took a wee detour to the wrong mark.

The annual Burnt Islands Race for keel boats took place on Saturday and it was the club’s own Ruairidh Campbell who held off Isle of Bute’s Alan Marshall to claim the silverware.
