West Highland Yachting Week 2014

Post by Donald McLaren » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:05 am

West Highland Yachting Week has been brought forward by a fortnight this year due to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow at the end of July. The traditional format has been retained, and details can be found on the Joint Regatta Committee website http://www.whyw.co.uk. The earlier timing will allow interested owners to return to the Clyde in time for the Clyde Flotilla trip from Greenock into central Glasgow for the Games opening. This is being organised by RYA Scotland.

WHYW has been popular with the Sigma 33 class for over 20 years, with a one-design class on offer for much of that time. For the last few years Sigmas have raced in a handicap class, most often for yachts all with the same Clyde Handicap as the Sigma 33. Visiting yachts are most welcome, but if there are insufficient numbers to secure a one-design class owners should apply to the Clyde Yacht Clubs' Association for a handicap certificate. For controlled one-design classes such as the Sigma 33, the fee is £5 which is a one-off payment for a certificate valid for the duration of ownership of the boat - see http://www.cyca-online.org.uk.
