Join us as we compete in one of Scotland’s premier sailing events, the Scottish Series in Scotland’s year of coasts and waters 2020. Following our successful rise up the rankings during 2019 we are looking to operate with a keen mixed race crew for 2020. With a day of dedicated race training provided before the Scottish Series we are looking forward to some great racing in and around Loch Fyne.
The yacht, Taeping, is the first ever round the world race yacht which was “open to all” in a round the world yacht race. Originally part of the Clipper Ventures fleet of 60 foot ocean racing yachts before she came to Scotland in 2017 she has continued to prove her racing pedigree.
