Fyfe's sailing through the Kyles of Bute

Postby SBpete » Fri Jun 27, 2008 11:14 am

I spent a great day yesterday sailing alongside over 40 yachts build at the William Fyfe boatyard in Fairley as they sailed past Tighnabruaich http://www.fiferegatta.com/index.htm. These boats measured from 25 feet to well over 150 feet, and the biggest were sailing hitting speeds of 15 knots :shock:
