Scottish Series Sponsors

The returning sponsors for the Scottish Series Events are:

The Scottish Series is delighted to have the support of Tunnock's as one of this year’s headline sponsors once again. Famous for their delicious teacakes and wafer biscuits, Sir Boyd Tunnock has not only dedicated a lifetime to supporting events and good causes but also his passion in sailing.

Lemarac will be back again this year competing in Tarbert and we wish Sir Boyd and his crew good sailing, along with our grateful thanks.

We welcome back The Botanist Gin as one of this year’s Scottish Series sponsors. Almost local to Tarbert, Islay based The Botanist is no stranger to Scottish Series, having been one of our sponsors for several years. And once again you can look out for The Botanist based prizes for race winners, as well as sampling The Botanist in the marquee after each day’s sailing.
