A reunion for William Fife-designed classic yachts

The dates of the Fife Regatta 2013 have been announced as 28 June to 5 July.

Now in its fourth year, the invitation-only event invites the famous William Fife designed and

built classic yachts to return to their birthplace on the Firth of Clyde,

Scotland and to participate in a unique regatta.

As with the previous Fife

Regattas, participants will enjoy spectacular scenery and hospitality, but with

a new itinerary that combines past favourites with new destinations.

The event will be based at Largs Yacht Haven, the marina adjacent to the

site of the Fife boatyard, and over the course of the week the fleet will sail

to Rothesay, Isle of Bute, through the Kyles of Bute to

Tighnabruaich and onwards to Portavadie on Loch Fyne.

The event comprises racing and cruising, a busy social programme

with a Scottish flavour and even a short cruise on board the famous paddle

steamer, Waverley.
