Fife Regatta Official Print
Alastair Houston, Marine Artist and the Fife Regatta founder, has produced a commemorative painting for 2022, with a limited edition of 175 prints. In the artist’s words:
“Seeing the Fife yachts making the pilgrimage from far away waters to celebrate on the Clyde is a sight to behold and a very rare one too! Which makes ‘The Fife Regatta’ all the more special. Its been a while now since that day aboard the beautiful Fife 8m Fulmar in 1997, we were sailing during the Monaco Classic Week, I pointed out to Duncan Walker the amount of Fife designs sailing and suggested the possibility of seeing these yachts at there birthplace in Fairlie. The rest is history and finally after regattas in 1998, 2003, 2008 and 2013 here we are again celebrating the great designers craft in 2022. The print depicts all of the yachts entered at Fairlie with their name below, with Kelburn Castle, The Pencil and Arran in the background.”

To bring a bit of musical cheer to all Fife enthusiasts it’s a delight to share this song written by a local Largs singer and songwriter, Graham Lyle and talented Fairlie based guitarist Charlie Evans.
Graham has spent a lot of his career based in the south of France and noticed with pride that some of the most beautiful yachts gracing Les Voiles d’Antibes were from his home area, he decided to get together with Charlie and write this lovely song about Fife. Graham has been one of the most prolific talents in the songwriting world working across different genres including country and popular music.
