Congratulation Medmerry II

Written by

Congratulations to Alan Brunton & the Medmerry II crew!

On Wednesday last Medmerry showed her pace by winning The Highland Heritage Trophy during West Highland Yachting Week.
This was presented to the Class 0 winner of the passage race from Oban to Tobermory over a distance of about 23 miles.


The conditions were favourable with some severe gusts and a steep chop in the Sound of Mull allowing Medmerry to power ahead of the more lightweight opposition.
The race was won by almost 2 minutes on corrected time ahead of the Dehler 38,Polaris.


West Highland Week is held annually and consists of round the cans and passage racing from Craobh, Oban and Tobermory. It is a very friendly and welcoming event and takes place in some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere.
Dates for next year 1-7 August.
