Painting a Youthful Picture at Scottish Series with Hempel Yacht UK


Silvers Marine Scottish Series will be celebrating 40 years this weekend 23 – 26 May 2014 and it is hoped that 100 boats will participate in this well-known Clyde Cruising Club Yacht Regatta. The event may be mature but not so for all the competitors. Hempel Paints will mark the involvement of the youth sailors giving recognition for the depth of talent across the classes and presenting the acclaimed Crawford McInnes Trophy.

Many young participants are attracted to this particular event to improve and develop their skills in keelboat racing. This may be the first opportunity to make the transition across from dinghy sailing to the larger keelboats and skippers, families and friends provide young enthusiastic sailors with this chance.  There will be some very talented youth sailors bringing with them a wealth of experience and energy, who have been brought up within the sport sailing on family yachts or have had access to coaching through local sailing clubs and RYA Scotland’s development squads.

Hempel Paints, who are no stranger to this event, are very proud of their involvement ensuring that the youth sailors (under 25) helm or crew who, in the opinion of the Race Committee, has given the best performance of all eligible competitors in the Series will be awarded with the prestigious Crawford McInnes Trophy.
