Scottish Champs 2012 Update
For those of you that don’t already know, there has been a great deal of effort put into developing the Laser SB3 class on the west coast of Scotland. There a number of boats and crew committed to racing on the upper clyde for evening and weekend racing. The class has previously failed to become established in Scotland possibly as a result of high boat prices in the past. However, with the availability of great value second hand boats, and the affordability of racing them, it looks set to be a success.
For the 2012 Laser SB3 Scottish Championships, the class are going to Loch Fyne to take part in the Scottish Series event. Here the class will benefit from their own one design class start and nine windward-leeward Races over 3 days organised by the Clyde Cruising Club. There will be free craning on 2nd & 4th June provided by Macleod Construction. The class will also benefit from free berthing at the new Portavadie Marina, PA21 2DA (www.portavadiemarina.com). We have provisionally booked out the bunkhouse accommodation block in the very nice new development at the marina exclusively to the class. We intend to have class socials held between tarbert an portavadie with the added help of the water taxi service.
