Kestra in the Edinburgh Cup, Abersoch, July 2016

Richard Leask’s crew were photographed in Kestra competing in the Edinburgh Cup at Abersoch, coming a creditable 21st overall out of 35 competitors in a week of strong winds and big waves. Richard, Willie and Nevin all visible but wet! She is also the red boat (GBR 489) in the middle of this photo of a group of Dragons on the downwind leg with spinnakers.

Also news of fine performances from both Jamie Calder and Lewis Smith at Kiel Week.

In the Laser Radial class Jamie was 2nd, with Lewis 5th, in an international fleet of 120 boats. Photo of Jamie in action on RYA Scotland website.

What it takes to reach these standards was glimpsed off Granton last weekend as they blasted about for hours each day observed and filmed by their coach in his RIB.

Next up for them are the Worlds in Dun Laoghaire later this month.
