Silvers Marine Scottish Series

26th May - 29th May | 11:30am-3-30pm
The Scottish Series is the second largest yachting regatta in the UK and takes place annually over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May in the picturesque fishing village of Tarbert, Loch Fyne.

The organising committee is also very pleased to announce that Silvers Marine, headline sponsors from 2014 have agreed to come back for a third year. Silvers is a well known and historic brand on the Clyde and beyond. The yard has long been known for its capabilities for build, repair and maintenance of yachts. This tradition has been extended and secured with the purchase of Silvers by parent company GSS in 2014.

The event began through enthusiastic sailors, in 1975, wanting to race their boats combining challenge with enjoyment. Passage racing combined with Olympic triangles created variation and something for everyone. This is still the vision today. The village of Tarbert has welcomed the event since 1977, offering a sheltered anchorage and plenty of bars to exchange tales after a day at sea! Onshore entertainments and good craic, influenced by the Irish contingency, has become as much a part of the event as the sailing.

The race programme will include the opening ‘Clyde Challenger Race’ from Largs for white sail, family class and cruisers on Friday 27th May. Other races will be conducted in Loch Fyne using race course format of triangles, windward -leeward or alternative variations. The event will conclude with its prizegiving in Tarbert on Monday 30th May.

Sailors return year after year to this prestigious yachting event to enjoy the mix of performance sailing with the familiarity of the venue. For the efforts of a small village and a team of Clyde Cruising Club volunteers, there are an incredible amount of special memories associated with Scottish Series.

If you have been before remember great times and come back for more. If you are new to the sport come and discover it for yourself. For non-sailors come and simply enjoy the atmosphere.
