Orkney, Scotland, July 13, 2017.
by Isobel Tipler
The annual Inter Club competition between Holm SC and Stromness SC in Orkney was held in Stromness yesterday evening. We had a really good turnout of thirteen boats, six from Holm and seven from Stromness but the last Stromness boat to finish in the first race was excluded from the results for both races to make it a fair six boats each. Pity the wind did not turn up but on the other hand the Hamnavoe ferry did.
In the end it was a win for Stromness SC by 62 points to 94 points.
