Hempel Paints add a splash of colour to Scottish Series


Hempel Paints is the official sponsor of the Crawford McInnes Trophy at this year’s Silvers Marine Scottish Series regatta
With just over three weeks until the 41st sailing of Scottish Series, this is great news for youth sailing, as the Crawford McInnes trophy is awarded for the best under 25 helm.  Scottish Series has always attracted young, talented sailors to the waters of Loch Fyne and this year, with numbers across the fleet up by 20 percent, this will be a hotly contested battle.  Looking through the names of previous winners of the trophy is like looking through a ‘Who’s Who’ of sailing, so it’s no surprise to learn this is the trophy everyone wants to win.
Silvers Marine Scottish Series Chairman Dane Ralston is thrilled to see Hempel Paints return as a sponsor.  He said:  “The Crawford McInnes trophy is one of the most prestigious in Scottish youth sailing, so it’s fitting that its sponsor is as proud of its heritage as we are. Last year the Mayrise crew added their name to the trophy and we’re very excited to see who will lift it this year. We’d like to thank everyone at Hempel Paints for once again supporting the regatta.”
Silvers Marine Scottish Series takes place in Tarbert, Loch Fyne from 22 – 25 May. For more info visit the official website.
