The final day of the Cape Cutter week was to have been a good sail across open water around the back of Bute to Largs. However the weather had other ideas. Just like our regatta, the warm settled weather was coming to an end, but in the meantime, there was no wind.
We passed the day under motor and were able to get a little help from our sails as we traveled south, but they were no use at all once we rounded Garroch Head at the southern end of Bute.
The motor was very pleasant in the sun with plenty of wildlife to spot- porpoise, dolphin, gannets, razorbills and guillemots.
Many of the fleet hauled out today, whilst a number are staying on to enjoy some sailing.
Official proceedings were brought to a close with a celebratory meal as guests of Largs Sailing Club, where we were treated to another wonderful meal. Organisers Gary and Malcolm presented prizes and were thanked by one and all for their stirling efforts in organising this most enjoyable rally.
