Shoreside - Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series 2012 Lorraine Alonzi
Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series 2012 is being held off Tarbert in Loch Fyne, Scotland from Friday 1 June until Monday 4 June. Organisers Clyde Cruising Club today (13th April) confirmed the much anticipated social programme for this year’s event, which will create a festival of sailing for competitors and spectators alike.

Taking place during the Queen’s Jubilee weekend a fun and entertaining social programme is being added to the quality racing of the event.

A fantastic new marquee complex on the north shore of Tarbert, where the yachts will be berthed will become the social hub for the entire weekend. Those with fond memories of the marquee experience from previous years will not be disappointed with the new look and feel for this year’s event, which promises a whole host of entertainment.

Competitors can meet, relax and socialise post racing in the dedicated marquee bar* which will also be the heart of a daily prize-giving ceremony, capturing the spirit of the Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series. Those attending on Saturday will be able to enjoy an exclusive whisky tasting session, courtesy of new event sponsors Bowmore, Islay Single Malt Whisky, and will be entertained with live music throughout the weekend.

In addition to the marquee, participants and spectators can soak up the atmosphere and enjoy local musicians, pipe bands, a Tea Party, a family ceilidh, a fireworks display and Water Waltzers. There are also separate events for kids.

John Watson, Commodore of Clyde Cruising Club, said: 'We are very excited about this year’s Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series and delighted that the marquee is back for 2012.

'As the social hub for the weekend the marquee will help create a vibrant, enjoyable and truly unique experience for all participants who help make it a spectacular sailing event every year. With our added fun shoreside entertainment we hope this will be the best Scottish Series to date.

'We would encourage more sailors from across the UK and further afield to consider entering the event and past competitors to continue to return to the stunning waters of Loch Fyne to soak up the wonderful atmosphere Tarbert has to offer.'
