Welcome to the opening day of the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Edinburgh Cup here in Largs where it’s rather cool and grey at the moment. The forecast is for it to warm up later with strong mainly southerly winds averaging around 19-20 knots and gusting up into the high 20s so it could get a bit lively.
Right now the teams are starting to go afloat for the first of today’s two races which is scheduled to start at 11.00.
We’ll be following them out on the water and will attempt to bring you live updates, but please be aware that the mobile internet connectivity is rather patchy so our ability to do this will depend on the exact location of the course.
What we can guarantee is that the organisers will be posting the results asap after each race and you can follow these at www.scottishsailinginstitute.com
Thanks to Alex Dobson for this morning’s view out towards the race area on the Clyde.
