Flotilla for the Games

24 Feb 2014

A Commonwealth flotilla of 250 boats will sail from Greenock to Glasgow in late July to mark the 2014 Games.

The Royal Yachting Association Scotland is organising the mass-participation event to arrive at Pacific Quay on the Clyde during the Commonwealth Games.

Its chief executive James Stuart said it was a "once-in-a-lifetime event" which would be "the largest assembly of boats that the Clyde has ever seen".

The boats will muster at Greenock's James Watt Dock on Friday 25 July.

They will make the 17-nautical-mile journey to Glasgow the following day.

The Glasgow 2014 games run from 23 July to 3 August.

Flotilla organisers plan to install new pontoons for berthing boats in the area beside the Science Centre and BBC Scotland's headquarters, west of Glasgow city centre.
