Something Else wins prestigious Silver Marine Scottish Series – IRC Class 2

John & Brian Hall’s J109 ‘Something Else’ won the IRC Class 2 in the prestigious Scottish Series in a highly competitive fleet featuring boats from northwest Europe.

This was an incredibly tight class across the whole weekend and it couldn’t have ended any closer with just one point separating the top three boats. John and Brian Hall pulled out all the stops on Something Else to net a second and third which was enough to top of the table and also bring home the Causeway Cup awarded to the entry which in the opinion of the Race Committee gave the best performance of the IRC classes in the Series. Full results here
