Update from the Chairman

Dear all,


Well …… we are getting excitingly close! I am delighted to update you with the news from our Covid Officer – yes, we have one. Indeed to be sure, we have two – that we should be all clear to go ahead with West Highland Yachting Week. This information not only accords with the latest update from our First Minister, but we also have the approval of RYA Scotland. So if you are still in doubt, please do not be, and get your entry in.

There is now only a little under a week to get your entry in – please bear in mind that entries close on Friday – 23rd July.

So, with this current glorious spell of weather, what more could you ask for than the thought of taking part in what promises to be a great event. A little different, perhaps, with no “formal” social activities planned, but that should not detract from the joy of meeting old friends, and some good inter bubble banter!

I may have said it before, but I am looking forward to seeing you all there.



Chairman – West Highland Yachting Week.

Message from your Chairman



The latest guidance from RYA Scotland, issued two days ago, is that we should be moving to “level 0” as of 19th July, which will effectively allow for outdoor gatherings of up to 500 people, with the relaxation of social distancing guidelines for outdoor events. While there is clearly no guarantee that the above change to level 0 will be made, we as a committee are ever hopeful that West Highland Yachting Week will be able to go ahead.


This weeks update therefore  is just to assure you all that from a planning point of view, we aim to go ahead with West Highland Yachting Week, and all due preparation is being made. That will remain the case unless there is a dramatic change to the contrary, at which point we would, of course, let you all know as soon as possible. There will be restrictions of one sort or another, and all competitors will be expected to play their part in adhering to those guidelines in place at the time. We will endeavour to keep you fully informed.


In the meantime, please get your entries in, get your boats ready, and we will look forward to seeing you on the water!


Gavin Marshall

Chairman West Highland Yachting Week.
