ASTO and RYA Scotland are jointly organising a Small Ships Race in Scotland in July 2014.
The event will be in the area of the Clyde, one of the most spectacular sailing grounds in the world, and will take place from Sunday 20th – Friday 25th July 2014. The event will comprise of an opening party, sporting events for ships' crews to take part in, a race from Greenock down around Arran and up to Portavadie to watch the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on a big screen. From there we will cruise in company with other boats through the Kyles of Bute and will finish in Greenock on the Friday with a party and prize giving.
Then there is the option (for an additional fee) to take part in the Commonwealth Flotilla, sailing into the heart of Glasgow to be part of the largest flotilla in the Clyde's history. We will be berthed at one of the main outdoor venues based at Pacific Quay which will include live music and entertainment from the BBC.
The trip into Glasgow can either be with your crew of trainees or you can bring corporate partners along for this cruise and host a once-in-a-lifetime corporate event.
The entry fee for the Commonwealth Small Ships Race is £60 to ASTO members. Entry form and Notice of Race available through the links on the left.
