Port Edgar Yacht Club will host the 2017 707 Nationals and you’ve just got to see the amazing new bridge, says class secretary David Smith.

PORT EDGAR YC will be welcoming all of the 707 teams to what should be a bonanza event on the Forth estuary where the waters are good for sailing with just enough tide and interesting options to create tremendous courses and great sailing conditions.

The 707s are aiming for 12 championship races over four days, 29 June to 2 July, and for ‘good wind’ reasons these will be held away from the bridges in good established event areas.

However it is proposed to run a ‘Bridge Race’ as a pre-event workout, taking place under the three iconic Forth bridges.
