The clubs have hosted countless national and international Championships, all delivered to an exceptional standard. This regatta will be run by a National Race Officer, supported by experienced and dedicated personnel.
A varied race area stretches from the ‘East Patch’ off the seaside town of Helensburgh to the ‘West Patch’ situated between Gourock, Dunoon and Hunters Quay. This area would have been used for some of the original Metre racing on the Clyde. The Royal Clyde Yacht Club’s original clubhouse was situated in Hunter’s Quay. Further down the Clyde is Rothesay, on the Isle of Bute, the original base of the Royal Northern Yacht Club, and on the mainland is Fairlie, the home of Fifes of Fairlie. Here many ‘fast and bonnie’ yachts were designed and built, including many Metre yachts.
