Race Preview: ‘The Bute Race’

Thursday 4th July, the penultimate race sees the Fifes race from Portavadie or Inchmarnock back to Largs.

Class 1 and 2 start off Portavadie Marina at 1100 and 1105 respectively, and sail the orange course above.

Class 3, which were held back in Tighnabruaich because of the extreme conditions we had on Tuesday, will start at 1200 in the area to the NW of Inchmarnock Island.

Wind is expected to be 15-20 knots from a Westerly or South-westerly direction, so the racers should be fully powered up power reaching towards the finish line just off Largs Yacht Haven.
