Old Pulteney Scottish IRC Championship and Mudhook Regatta - Day 1

by Fiona Holland 6 Jun 2015 15:32 BST 6-7 June 2015

Day one (Saturday June 6) of Scotland's Old Pulteney IRC Championship, organised by Mudhook Yacht Club and held at Helensburgh on the Clyde, has been cancelled.

With discretion being the better part of valour, race officers cancelled the first day's competition, which also includes the Mudhook Regatta, late on Friday night in the face of weather forecasts predicting gusts of force eight out of the west.

Competition will, however, resume on Sunday - winds are expected to subside - when the committee will aim to run four races to constitute a series in pursuit of the new Old Pulteney Scottish IRC Champion.

A fleet of some 30 yachts, including the IRC competitors, CYCA, Sigma 33, Sonar and Etchells, had been due to draw up at the start line.

Racing will begin on Sunday with a time gun at 10.30am, as per sailing instructions.
