Monster of a Monster

a period of four hours, 40 weather beaten and battered catamaran crews
dragged themselves and their boats up the steep shingle beach near the
Dores Inn after taking on the Marine Design International Loch Ness
Monster Race on Saturday 25th August.

infamous Monster was nowhere to be seen, but Loch Ness itself put up
a fight that will provide plenty of bar chat for years to come.

star-studded cast of competitors rigged their boats in building breeze
on Friday, and watched ominously as the stunning 25 mile stretch of
water took on a foreboding appearance. Meanwhile, the Extreme 40 Basilica
was out sailing, entertaining clients, and generally blasting around
like a teenager. With no sailing club at the Loch, competitors bedded
down for the night in the field at the end of the Loch.
