This June we again have the pleasure of welcoming the racers from Helgoland at the end of North Sea Week.
After a long weekend of racing in the Helgoland area, a fleet of typically forty yachts will race the four hundred miles to Granton. The race is due to start at 16:30 German time (15:30 BST) on Monday 5th June, and the racers are expected to arrive at Granton later in the week. See Event notice.
RFYC will organise the finish of the race, and host the crews. The small and medium size yachts will moor on the EML pontoon, the largest ones (some will draw over 3 metres) will go into Leith Docks or anchor off Granton.
The race runs every two years. In 2015 it was a fantastic social occasion, and we hope this year will be the same or better.
More details as they become available.
