Festival Series 2014

The end of July saw our annual Festival Series, an open event for keelboats and dinghys.

Regrettably, there was a drop in the number of entries this year (is is the time of year or the weather or are there just too many events on the Forth?)  In fact there were no entries in the dinghy class, apart from PIP, Terry O’Brian’s International 2.4mR, which had to be upgraded to be a keel boat with a very big handicap:
