Built in 1924, the Gareloch One Design Class numbered just 16 beautiful ton and a half, classically profiled yachts, designed and built by McGruers. It is doubtful whether anyone in 1924 would have expected the entire fleet to be racing today but the Class does remain in great heart and rejuvenated after much celebration of its 90th anniversary in 2014.
The people who sail these vessels are a friendly and welcoming lot! We race every Tuesday evening and Sunday afternoon throughout the summer in the hill-bound Gareloch waters. Opportunities for boat ownership or shared ownership occasionally come up or crewing may appeal to you. Either way, if you would like to be involved then please contact me or Charles Darley via the details shown on this page.
