A video of my day out on Sunday 10/04/22, on the Taeping - a Clipper 60 racing yacht originally designed for the famous Clipper Round-The-World sailing yacht race. This particular example has been around the world four times, and is now run by an organisation called Ocean Sailing Scotland. Our day trip was a little more local than that, leaving from Kip Marina in Inverkip where the boat is based, up towards Rothesay and up the East part of the Kyles of Bute and Loch Riddon, then back again. It was a great day out and it was good to experience sailing for the first time, on an interesting and storied vessel nonetheless. Many thanks to the three crew on board on the day - due to circumstances I ended up being the only paying customer on board that day!
