Tun­nock’s head up WHYW 70

The Oban Times - - West Highland Yachting Week -

In 1980, West High­land Yacht­ing Week en­tered into a 30-year-long sport­ing part­ner­ship with Ten­nent Cale­do­nian Brew­eries, prob­a­bly the long­est spon­sor­ship ever of a yacht­ing event.

In more re­cent years, the JRC has formed a firm as­so­ci­a­tion with Tun­nock’s who have acted as the main spon­sor of the re­gatta and the fa­mous Scot­tish bis­cuit man­u­fac­tur­ers will be the head­line spon­sors of the 70th an­niver­sary event. Ad­di­tional spon­sor­ship is pro­vided by Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil from which the Ar­gyll fleet takes its ti­tle, and Tobermory Har­bour As­so­ci­a­tion. More re­cently sup­port has been added from Owen Sails, Malin Waters, Gael Force Ma­rine Equip­ment, Scot­tish Canals, Dun­staffnage Ma­rina, We­bcraft UK Ltd and Bir­linn Books.

Boyd Tun­nock CBE, grand­son of the founder Thomas Tun­nock, has been a reg­u­lar and suc­cess­ful WHYW com­peti­tor in his Moody 38 Le­merac.

He said: ‘We are de­lighted to be as­so­ci­ated with WHYW 70 and will be pro­vid­ing each com­pet­ing boat with the fa­mous Tun­nock’s sur­vival pack of bis­cuits – some­thing that each com­peti­tor should not be with­out. This will be a spe­cial event to mark the an­niver­sary and ev­ery­one is very much look­ing for­ward to it.’
