The very last race of the season for the old ladies, born in 1925. It was a stiff breeze off the Shandon shore.
On the water race officer Peter Proctor selected a course beginning downwind to D, north of Clynder. Catriona with Michael Lapsley on the helm made a leisure...

The last of the Sunday afternoon races this year.  Heavy rain in the morning did not engender enthusiasm but it was dry with good wind (if gusty) for the race.

New to the Class Michael Lapsley and Louise Corry sailed on Catriona.  

With wind blowing from the Shandon shor...

On the water Race Officer Shane Rankin sent us on one of the shorter courses up and down the Shandon shore.  There was an instruction to finish after one round.  It seemed a short race but as we made our way back to the moorings, wind lightened so that a second round m...

The first of the Ancient Mariner Series, named after Douglas Young, whose nickname that was.  He owned the Gareloch Galatea when he passed on.  We start an hour earlier, on account of the darker evenings.

On the water Race Officer Shane Rankin selected one of the s...

The Gareloch class was host to visitors from the Howth 17 Footers (the oldest one design keelboat) and the Freundeskreis Klassische Yachten.  The plan was for nine races so that each team raced each other team three times.  

Saturday morning started with a brisk wi...

The last of the normal Tuesday evening races although the Garelochs carry on through September with an earlier start.  Weather was very pleasant in the context of gardening but not conducive to a memorable race.  Race Officer Peter Proctor was very patient and waited f...

A delightfully sunny evening with steady wind.  Race officer Barrie Choules took advantage and set one of the longer courses with a windward leg to the northernmost mark on the Clynder shore.

On the water Race Officer Barrie Choules selected one of the longer courses, zig-zagging across the loch.  A good wind blowing from the Shandon shore meant a start with spinnakers.  Catriona got away well with Thalia and Halcyone close by.  Dione’s start was less than...

There was next to no wind as we stood in the car park.  The Sonar sailors went home.  There was sufficient enthusiasm in the Garelochs to go out to the boats and trouble Race Officer Neil Isaacs.  He set the shortest course, to A, off the club and back.  We sailed one...

July 30, 2019

We began with rain and little wind.  At least it was not cold.  On the water Race Officer Shane Rankin chose a course up and down the Shandon Shore so as to avoid the Clynder side of the loch which had detained us for so long on the previous Thursday.

Catriona made...
