Jamie McGarry, owner of GSS Marine Services, says “As a re-launch of the yard and the Silvers brand we are delighted to partner with the CCC in sponsoring the Scottish Series. This is particularly exciting given the 40th celebrations this year in Tarbert. Scottish Series is a magnificent event run by the army of volunteers and club officials from the CCC. To be able to support this and indeed participate in the event is tremendously exciting for all at Silvers and GSS.” GSS have already supported other sailing regattas on the Clyde and their involvement will add great value to this event for all in attendance.
