Port Edgar – First British Made Their Way In ESCL

A team from Edgar Yacht Club (PEYC) the South Queensferry-based Port is the only team from British to reach in the final of the European Sailing Champions League (ESCL).


At the end of this month, Helm Callum Calder, including Iain Dick, Ramsay Leuchars and Callum Reid as crew will travel to the Porto Cervo in Sardinia,

The final brings together 12 European nations and 31 crews from 12 nations; these are the crew members, who have already participated in the races in St Moritz, Switzerland and in St Petersburg, Russia.

The crew is being sponsored by PEYC and Ian Hards, the development officer of the club, said “This result is evidence to the success of the initiative of race training at the club. If someone is interested in being the champion of the future sailing, this is the place where they can look. This is a superb center of excellence present at the Yacht Club of Port Edgar, where every need of the sailors is addressed and given the priority.”

The sailors can come here to learn new techniques of sailing. However, to become the part of this group, they first have to show an extraordinary skill of sailing in the league.

As far as the performance of the British team in the league is concerned, then the players seem in the best form and they are excited and well planned.

Helm Callum Calder said,” The team is ready to face any kind of challenge, we had not only planned to win this league, but also we have planned to give tough competition to the other participating teams. This year the league will see some of the best races ever done.”

(ESCL) European Sailing Champions League is scheduled to take place by the end of this month.
