Plockton small boat sailing club season has got off to a slow start after an absence of a year.

Only two boats entered the three races for the Dubhard trophy for centreboards on June 12. Michael Hay (Die Forelle) won all three races to win the trophy with his brother David in Fasgadair coming second.

On June 19, four boats, three centreboards and one local boat entered for the Plockton hotel stakes, one retired. Result: 1, Michael Hay (Nan); 2, David Hay (Vision); 3, Ian Hay, their father, (Fasagair)

Prizes were kindly presented by Plockton Hotel representatives after the race.

On June 26, three centreboards sailed for the malt trophy races (series of four). Race One: 1, Michael Hay (Die Forelle); 2, Neil Jardine (Top Banana); 3, Ian Hay (Fasgadair).

Race Two: 1, Neil Jardine (Top Banana), ending the dominance of the Hay family; 2, Michael Hay; 3, David Hay.

Earlier this month Angus Flett from Edinburgh, who spent many holidays sailing his boat at Plockton, decided to donate his much loved 16 foot vessel along with an outboard engine to Plockton Small Boat Sailing Club to help with training children.
