The organising authority of Scotland's premier regatta, Clyde Cruising Club, have announced plans to move the event location for 2021.

Instead of its traditional racing grounds on Loch Fyne the event will move east and operate out of a number of locations throughout the Clyde estuary. The revised event will also see all shoreside and social activities cancelled to reduce the risk of the event not running for a second year.

Speaking on the decision Glenn Porter, chair of the organising committee said "In 2020 we saw the largest regatta north of the south coast cancelled, something we are keen to avoid again. Born out of a desire to race and socialise over the last bank holiday weekend in May we know that 2021 will need to be very different. By stripping out the high risk social aspects, which we know many love, and operating out of multiple bases we hope to support the many racers who look forward to this annual event."

Details on the 2021 race format will be released in late February on the event website at www.scottishseries.info.
