IT’S A strange quirk isn’t it. Late summer, you see a ski or boarding video of someone carving up the steep and the deep and you want to be there, and right now, Spring, if it can be called that, and you start to anticipate the regatta and event season ahead and you just want to be there already, in the thick of it, writes YL racing editor Andi Robertson.

Starting at home, the CCC Scottish Series seems set to go from strength to strength even if there has been no success yet in landing a major, overarching title sponsor.

From my personal perspective I find it hard to believe that no brand or product wants to come up with money to be associated with Scotland’s premier competitive participation regatta.
