8 Metres in Scotland...a sight to behold


Right now, the TP52s are sparring in Mallorca, but I know which racing spectacle I’d prefer to look at. This glorious sight is the 8 Metre fleet coming off the line at their World Championships on the Clyde, captured by Marc Turner. 

The racing is being hosted by the Royal Northern & Clyde YC, and the boat to beat after three days of racing is Richard Self’s and Ron Palm’s Gefion, which has been world champion seven times already.
