THE EUROPEAN Waterski Championships were recently held in Sandbank, Dunoon, arranged and organised by The British Waterski & Wakeboard Federation, Holy Loch Marina and Swordfish Marine.

Holy Loch Marina had a busy time launching, recovering and storing over 30 power boats in their large undercover shed. The marina also accommodated 35 campervans in their yard and welcomed an entourage of around 300 from all over Britain, Belgium, Spain and Austria.

The event was deemed a huge success for all involved, with three different race courses which covered all eventualities of the ever changing Scottish weather. The sheltered Holy Loch in Sandbank being one of the courses, together with East Bay and West Bay in Dunoon.
