The Clyde Cruising Club Scottish Series 2019 saw three different days of weather on Loch Fyne, challenging sailors with light to heavy winds, sunny to rainy skies, and just about everything in between. Winning IRC 2 Class and also declared overall winner of the Scottish Series was Andrew Craig's J/109 Chimaera.

According to Craig, "this was my eighth Scottish Series. I am delighted to be part of the amazing winning team on our J/109 "Chimaera". We also got awarded "Boat Of the Week," so we're thrilled. Thanks to Nevan Powell, John White, Eddie O' Rahelly, Brian Mathews, Nick Craig, Dave Cotter and Andrew Abbott for a great event. Well done everyone!"

In the IRC 2 Class, Jonathan Anderson's J/122E El Gran Senor took second place, while the Douglas family's J/133 Spirit Of Jacana took fourth. Gordon Lawson's J/122 Moonstruck Too rounded out the top five in fifth place.

The Makars Mash RC35 Class saw spirited racing in the biggest class in the event. Winning was the J/109 Chimaera, followed by Pat Kelly's J/109 Storm in third place and Brian and John Hall's J/109 Something Else taking fourth position.

The IRC 3 Class saw Nicholas Marshall's J/92 Satisfaction grab the bronze medal, while Peter Doig's J/92S Jack placed fifth.
