Regatta to return in July 2011


The last weekend in July (30th/31st) will see St Ayles Skiffs from across Scotland returning for another Portobello Regatta.

With several communities building skiffs for the first time, and with many now building their second boat – we hope we’ll be seeing numbers in double figures, up from five in the first year of the revived historic regatta.

With Portobello’s long sandy beach, sheltered from the prevailing wind, we have a superb venue for skiff racing – for teams, supporters and spectators.

For this event we’re planning some longer races with larger numbers in each heat. The course will be laid out to provide exciting views from the beach of the turns around the bouys – and of what’s becoming the classic Portobello finish – straight on to the beach!
