Gunn Trophy Inter-club Topper competition
Saturday 3rd September at 11:00–17:00
Entries are invited to our annual Topper competition open to teams of three Toppers from any club in the Highlands. This is a fun event -- the winner receives the coveted Gunn trophy which has only ever been taken from Lochcarron sailors once.
Can the Isle of Skye Team steal it again or will Plockton sailors win the day? Any club can enter. There is no entry fee. We will set up a barbeque mid-afternoon.
Please let us know if you are planning to come. Let's have a blast near the end of the season!
