The weather was the biggest winner in day three of Silvers Marine Scottish Series with the fleet only able to complete one race.  And it was down to the persistence of the race officials who managed to even get one race down.


In IRC Class 1 it is still too close to call between the Commodore’s Cup team.  Steve Cowie’s Zephyr and Jamie McGarry and Colin Moore’s Eala of Rhu are still tied on ten points with Rod Stuart’s Aurora just one point behind.  And don’t discount Jonathan Anderson and Murray Findlay’s Roxstar who is still only three points adrift on 14 points.


Over in IRC Class 2 John Corson in Salamander XXI has a two point cushion going into the final day over Robert McConnell’s Fools Gold who are well clear of Pat Kelly’s third place Storm on 13 points.


IRC Class 4 has a clear leader in Craig Latimer and Wildebeest IV who end today with a five point lead over Tim Ellis in T M Racing on 19 points and J Dryburgh and R Pilcher’s TJIG IV back on 23 points.  Wildebeest IV won the race today with, in second place, Carl Allen’s More T Vicar which moves them up the rankings to seventh position.


In CYCA Class 5 Jamie Cumming’s Rogue Trader still heads the pack, but, with a win today, Ian Macdonald’s Significant is only three points behind while Scott and Nicola Chalmers’ Sunrise is hot on their heels, just one point away.


CYCA Class 6 sees A Bilsland and Gus McLeod’s Stargazer with a very comfortable lead, the real battle in this class is between John Kent’s Farr e Nuff and Alan Dunnet’s Valhalla of Ashton which both go into the final day of Scottish Series separated only by one point.


Three points separate the first three boats in CYCA Class 9 Restricted Sail which is headed by Clive Reeves’ Lyrebird followed by Ian Nicolson’s St Foy and K Allan and S Shearer’s Brave.


In the Sigma 33’s Donald McLaren’s Sigmatic is still out in front, followed by Harold Hood’s Odyssey II, who won their race today, with, in third and only one point behind, Griogair Whyte’s Close Encounters.


Finally in the Sonata class Red Hot Poker is red hot at the moment with a six point lead in the class.  The really hot battle is for second with Mark Taylor’s Saraband and Mark Bradshaw’s Mostly Harmless both tied on 20 points.


The final day of Silvers Marine Scottish Series promises to be one of the most nail biting, with many classes still simply too close to call.
