Scottish Boat Show 2013

October 15, 2013

Flyboarding

We enjoyed a great day at the Scottish Boat Show on Saturday the 12th of October. We just managed to catch some of the flyboarding from a distance, as you can see from the video grab above. Before lunch, we meandered around the pontoons and looked around a few yachts.

Malin Angee

Of course, we couldn’t help but notice ‘Angee’, a fin-keel Macwester Malin for sale. There seemed to be quite a bit of interest in her while we were having a look.  She’s a ketch with a factory-fitted doghouse and original BMC diesel engine. Incidentally  another Macwester Malin already in the photobank section (Iana; a twin keel), is also currently up for sale at £20000. Photographs of both yachts now available in the photobank section of this website here.

We met up with friends from our club for lunch, and we heard how they got on crewing on ‘Drum‘. We were kicking ourselves that we missed the opportunity to sail on her, but the truth is we didn’t know what day we could make it over to the show, and so couldn’t book in advance. It sounded like a blast, so that’s something that we hope to do some day.

It was an enjoyable day out, made all the better by the autumn sunshine.
