The owners of Freya, a Swan 90, were also full of praise for the event and have been surprised at how much they value the regatta element of being part of ClubSwan. “We built Freya for cruising, we never intended on racing her,” owner Donald Macperson admits. “But our captain convinced us to enter one because he thought we would enjoy it and now we have caught the bug. We invite all our family and friends to come out racing with us so it is great for quality time with them.”
Light winds on Thursday and Friday meant that the yachts missed a day of racing but the week ended on a high with strong winds and the crew of Nikata taking home the prize for the Maxi Division.
