Stranraer Regatta 18.8.18

Along with thirteen other clubs we took part in this regatta which was over a 2km course.Troon finished seventh overall and in the Mens Open we finished a close fourth only being beaten by Dundrum (current World Champions),North Berwick (overall regatta winners) and Killyliegh from Ireland.The 2019 World Championships will be held in Stranraer over this course and this was a great test of the facilities available.
