Some good links to photographs of the Mylne Classic Regatta 2009

July 26th, 2009 alison

The Mylne Classic Regatta took place over the 12th to 16th July and it was great to see all the boats sailing about the Clyde - reminiscent of the Fyfe Regatta of last year, only with better weather!

There are now some photos up on the Mylne Regatta website and they only emphasise how attractive these yachts are. Some of them are also quite imposing, and with so many different sails and sheets sailing some of the larger Mylnes must be quite a challenge.

While browsing for photos of the regatta I came across some links to a few sites which I think are worth a look.

Mylne Classic Regatta 2009

July 6th, 2009 alison
Fyfe 18

Some Fyfe Yachts racing during the 2008 Fyfe Regatta

Starting on Sunday 12th July is the Mylne Classic Regatta. In an event that may be reminiscent to some of the Fyfe Regatta last summer, these Alfred Mylne designed yachts will compete in numerous races, from Helensburgh to Rothesay, Round Bute, To Cumbrae and back from Rothesay to Rhu, meaning there will be plenty to see over the week. Let’s hope the good weather we’ve been having holds so we can see some of these yachts in their full glory! There will also be opportunities for the public to visit the yachts at each stopover.

Sure to be a sight from the land, why not get out and look at them from the water? With daysail spaces available from Kip on Saturday 18th July 2009 take the opportunity to sail the Firth of Clyde, enjoy the scenery and wildlife, and perhaps see some of these yachts as they make their way home from the regatta.
