All the bad weather we have been experiencing this winter definitely put us into hibernating mode, but it will come to an end eventually and people will start getting ready for the 2018 season. Peter Bloch from N.Ireland is the first to put in his entry for West Highland Week. Perhaps that will stir others up – we look forward to receiving your entries!
As we enter 2018 we are delighted to announce the plans for West Highland Yachting Week 2018 and have posted the Notice of Race with an added price advantage to those boats that commit early.
2018 will make the 71st year the event has been running and plans to be a wonderful week both on the water and ashore. As before the week starts at Croabh Haven and moves north to Oban where it sees the return of the Firth of Lorn races on the Tuesday and then heads out to the west to Tobermory before returning to Dunstaffanage for the final evening.

Today’s results published.
86 starters this morning. Showers and sunny patches during start. Spinnakers flying up the east side of Lismore. No recalls for the first time – well mannered fleet! The Yeoman Bridge had a good view of the start.
We do not know if these vehicles are anything to do with the WHYW fleet, but if any of you are the owner/s of Toyota Yaris SL14 JHO or Citron Berlingo SM09 XZL which are blocking the access to the Seafood Temple bin (due to be emptied first thing Wednesday morning and is at present completely blocked), but if so, if they are not removed by Tuesday afternoon they will have no choice but to contact the police and report the said vehicles for obstruction.
86 starters today. Fleet finished just before the rain came!
Clue 43 should be 8 letters, not 9. Clue 16 should be 6 letters, and clue 67 should be 6,5. Sorry !
And, yes, clue 64 is a repeat of 22!
