Summer Points Series 7 2000

A grisly day of pouring rain may not have promised much for the seventh race of Glencoe Boat Club’s Summer Points Series, but a reasonably dry and surprisingly pleasant evening was enjoyed by the four boats that took part. Although the choice of a short, single lap, course was influenced by the quiet conditions at the start, the breeze subsequently picked up to give a good little race which could probably have sustained a second round.

With Kerry Mist and Squirt carrying crews of three and Sionnach and Fly reduced to just two apiece, neither sail-handling nor control was always straightforward but, despite struggling at times to keep sailing efficiently, Fly was still just able to see off a spirited challenge from Kerry Mist to take her fifth first place of the series.
