DRUM has some very exciting events coming up in 2016… and you could be part of them!

Thu 4th February 2016

Scottish Series

After a roaring success last year we are pleased to announce that Drum will yet again be taking part in the Scottish Series. This premier yachting race event in Scotland will again take place on Loch Fyne over four days from 27th May 2016. The picturesque village of Tarbert will play host to over 100 yachts in the harbour, where there will be some amazing onshore entertainment and hospitality as well as a chance to try the local produce and delicacies.

Refit Update

Drum’s refit is steadily coming along. There has been lots of activity on board. She has had all her non-essential kit removed, cleaned out and as well as a seemingly endless amount of painting has been carried out (big thanks to James). The sails have been removed and sent to Nicolson Hughes the sail maker for an annual inspection and remedial repairs. All the safety kit has been serviced by Ocean Safety and stored ashore awaiting the start of the new season. West Coast Marine has been to service the main engine and generator.

We are currently awaiting the appropriate weather and tidal window (not easy in Scotland) in order to take Drum out of the water at Fairlie Quay where further work can be carried out by our contractors. Our crew will also be kept busy with their annual inspection, service and repairs of the various bits of kit and equipment that help to keep Drum running smoothly during the season.

Scottish Series

DRUM will be taking part in the Scottish Series , the premier yachting race event in Scotland. The event is taking place on Loch Fyne over 4 days, from 23rd to 26th May. The scenic west coast village of Tarbet, Loch Fyne, will welcome over 100 yachts into the harbour, where there will be as much shore-side hospitality as there is yacht racing. DRUM is available to charter for all 4 days of this amazing event.

West Highland Week

DRUM will also be taking part in the West Highland Week, which begins on 12th July and ends on 18th July. This is a unique sailing regatta that takes place in Craobh, Oban and Tobermory. Over 1000 competitors from all over the world will be taking part in the events and, again, this will involve competitive racing as well as a full programme of social events. DRUM is currently available to charter for any or all of these days.

If you would like to take part in these events then please get in touch to check our availability. We are expecting spaces to fill up quickly, so please enquire early to avoid disappointment.
