Queensferry Crossing Flotilla
Several yachts from the RFYC joined a fleet of over 50 yachts and other craft to celebrate the official opening of the Queensferry Crossing.
The event was followed by a hog roast at Port Edgar, and a drizzly motor sail home to Granton. A good time was had by all.
Here are a few photos (by H Sillitto unless otherwise credited), more to follow.
