Holm Regatta 2011

Snipe: 14 snipes registered for racing on Saturday 20th August, dominating the fleet at Holm Regatta. Richard Lambert's Freyr had a successful day winning the Snipe race as well as the Allcomers, other boats didn't fare so well in the windy conditions. Only 5 boats completed the Snipe race, with several capsizes and a few breakages. Mark Taylor's Wild Goose managed a dramatic capsize over the start line which cause a fair bit of havoc.

Kemp Cup 2011

Kemp Cup is traditionally a windy event and the 10th September 2011 was no exception. There was a good turn out of yachts but quite a small group of dinghies this year. At most of the Orkney sailing events the Snipe class provide the largest numbers; this year's Kemp Cup the dinghies were dominated by Lasers, a class which has recently been undergoing a bit of a local rennaisance.

Longhope Regatta 2011

Alan Hale's youtube of the event.

Back to Top

The format of Longhope Regatta consisted of a figure of eight course with the start from the pier end; two back to back races were held in a light to moderate Easterly breeze. A wide range of boats turned out including catamarans, yoles, Merlin Rockets, Wayfarers, a solitary Mirror, a Fireball and a flock of Snipe. The event made an attractive spectacle in the waters of Scapa Flow.

Tidal considerations along with a shifty breeze made for interesting racing. The tide was ebbing during all the racing; quite strongly during the Allcomers race in the afternoon. There was a friendly atmosphere throughout the event, with a tasty meal of mince, potatoes, soup and rolls after the racing. The trophies were presented following a considerable lottery.

Stromness Regatta was held on Saturday 9th July. Light and patchy wind gave tricky race conditions. In the Snipe race Neil Foubister's No Fear got off to a great start and finished well ahead of the other snipes.
