Kentra launches in Fairlie

On 24th June 1923, the gaff rigged Kentra was first launched at William Fife’s boatyard in Fairlie. Today, almost 90 years later, Kentra again slipped gracefully into the Clyde at Fairlie Quay.

It is lovely to see this beautiful Fife back in home waters, and look forward to celebrating her 90th birthday during the 2013 regatta.
