At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Clyde Cruising Club has announced plans to move this year’s Scottish Series, as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

Instead of its traditional venue on Loch Fyne, Scotland’s premier regatta will move east and operate out of Clyde estuary locations from May 28 to May 31.

The revised event will also see all shoreside and social activities cancelled to reduce the risk of the event not running for a second year.

Glenn Porter, chairman of the organising committee, said: ‘In 2020 we saw the largest regatta north of the south coast cancelled, something we are keen to avoid again.

‘Born out of a desire to race and socialise over the last bank holiday weekend in May, we know 2021 will need to be different. By stripping out the high risk social aspects, which we know many love, and operating out of multiple bases we hope to support the many racers who look forward to this annual event.’

Details on the 2021 race format will be released later this month on the event website
