Time is running out to enter your craft in one of the most eagerly-awaited events of the Bute summer - the Isle of Bute Sailing Club’s annual Rothesay Bay Raft Race.

The race begins at 1pm on Sunday, August 9 at Children’s Corner on the Rothesay promenade.

This year’s event is being supported by Light Up Bute, and with that in mind there will be a barbecue, bouncy castles, face painting and stalls at the sailing club’s HQ in Ardbeg Road once the race has started - the clubhouse also serving as the finishing line for the race.

To find out more, or to enter the race, contact Lorna Campbell at Isle of Bute Sailing Club on (01700) 502351 or by emailing alwaysoot@btinternet.com.
