The Gareloch Class went to the Royal Mersey Yacht Club at Rock Ferry to race in Mersey Mylnes.  The pier from which we went out to the boats is a listed structure and was used by a long gone ferry across the Mersey.  It was a very special party because our hosts celebr...

There was enough air for us to ghost to the starting area, decide there was insufficient to race and then ghost back.  It was the same for the Classic Regatta at Gourock on the previous Saturday.

There was a good breeze in the afternoon.  There was a good breeze as we left the moorings.  As we arrived at the starting area, the Gareloch became increasingly smooth.  

Race Officer Julian Forrester set one of the shortest courses, to H (off the shop in Cly...

Hatasoo  basket,  race 2

A lovely day  with light winds, 

6 Garelochs ventured to the start line with Dione taking the role of  on-the-water  race officer.  Light south-westerly wind indicated a first mark on the far shore. 

Catriona was a littl...

There was little wind as we left the moorings so that a very short course (to the mark off the club and back) was set.  Wind strengthened by the time of the start and was on the beam for both legs.  

The shore end of the starting line was to windward but air was li...

The first race we had this year.  The first scheduled race is the last Tuesday evening of April.  For that, there was rain but no wind. 

Today, five of the nine Garelochs afloat turned out.  The breeze was blowing down the loch, creating an uncomfortable swell...

The last of the Sunday races this year.  Its not all miserable, though.  We are off next weekend to the Starnberger See in Bavaria to team race against the Freundeskreis Klassische Yachten.  The event is sponsored by Budweiser (not the American one) so that we are keen...

Some people cannot make the earlier starts on Tuesdays in September.  On this evening, Dione and Teal were absent.  The on the water Race Officer set a course which should have given a couple of legs to windward.  As often happens in the Gareloch, direction of wind cha...

Gusty again as we made our way out to the boats.  The effect is heightened with sails flapping on the mooring.  That put off crews on Luna and Zephyrus, they missed a good race with wind moderating a little.  There were five of us at the start.  Iain MacGillivray sent...

September 12, 2018


It was a windy evening, at least to start with.  A couple of crews went out to rig but thought better of it.  That left Teal, Hermes and Catriona.  Some of the others cannot make the earlier start in the September series, necessary on account of fading light....
