Silvers Marine has been confirmed as headline sponsors of Scotland’s most prestigious yacht racing regatta.
The new owners of the iconic Scottish Boatyard Silver Hills, Rosneath, have confirmed their support and sponsorship for the 40th Scottish Series Regatta.
The event, organised by the Clyde Cruising Club (CCC), will again be hosted in the picturesque west coast village of Tarbert on Loch Fyne.
Rhu-based GSS Group this month concluded the sale of Silvers Marine.
Managing director Jamie McGarry said: “As a re-launch of the yard and the Silvers brand we are delighted to partner with the CCC in sponsoring the Scottish Series.
“This is particularly exciting given the 40th celebrations this year in Tarbert. Scottish Series is a magnificent event run by the army of volunteers and club officials from the CCC. To be able to support this and indeed participate in the event is tremendously exciting for all at Silvers and GSS.”
The Silvers Marine Scottish Series 2014 will start with a race from Gourock to Tarbert on Friday May 24 scheduled to start at 10am.
This is billed as a spectacular sight with many yachts tussling on the start line including Ocean racers Drum and Clyde Challenger.
The race programme will then include further races on Loch Fyne until Monday May 26 with the Regatta concluding with the prize giving in Tarbert.
