For the 2012 regatta the organising committee invited Chico to be one of the support boats. We hosted 8 members of the committee for 6 days. A race team includes a timekeeper, a gunner, spotters, recorders and flag officers, all supervised by a race officer. The regatta takes place over 6 days and includes passage races from Craobh Marina to Oban, Oban to Tobermory and back, plus races around buoys and islands. 114 yachts participated. A splendid event, slickly organised and greatly enjoyed by both the competitors and organising committee.
