Saturday was arrival day at Largs Yacht Haven on the beautiful Firth of Clyde. We were treated to glorious sun as we rigged the boats and a team effort got 11 boats launched and on the pontoons in good time.
It’s great to see so many Cape Cutters travelling; I had brought Aurora just over 300 miles from the Midlands and there are several other boats from central England, but a number of boats had traveled much more impressive distances, notably Sapphire from Weymouth, Wadudu from Exmouth, Never Budge from Rosguill in Donegal.
A very gusty F6/7 kept in the harbour in the afternoon, but there was plenty of boat fettling, making new acquaintances and renewing old ones to be done.
We spent a marvellous evening as guests of Largs Sailing Club in their smart clubhouse and watched the most amazing sunset as we ate our meal. Gary and Malcolm opened the formal proceedings and we were briefed for tomorrow.
