Scottish Area Championships Preview

Do you miss the salty tang of the Caribbean Sea, or do you need to escape from your comfort zone and have an adventure? Taste the sea again off the west coast of Scotland, in the relatively sheltered waters of Lamlash Bay, surrounded by scenery to die for.

Only a 55 minute ferry crossing from the mainland, with cheaper ferries than you remember, and every sort of accommodation you could wish for. The Super 6 Scottish Championship on 18 and 19 June is hosted from the new clubhouse at Arran Yacht Club , sailing beside the spiritual Holy Isle and Scotland’s first No Take Zone. Watch out for the tide, and keep an eye open for whales and dolphins . There may be a wee libation and a bit of banter on Saturday evening.

Bring your family and friends and have a few days visiting the Arran Distillery, Arran Aromatics, and Brodick


Castle. There are stupendous golf courses and beautiful hills. Go home thoroughly refreshed, with a few bottles from Arran Brewery, and not a rum punch in sight – just a few palm trees courtesy of the Gulf Stream.

Castle Semple SC would also be delighted to welcome you to the Scottish and Borders Open meeting on 04 and 05 June. Leave your boats in our secure compound, and pick them up again on the way to Arran two weeks later.
