Queensferry Crossing Flotilla

Several yachts from the RFYC joined a fleet of over 50 yachts and other craft to celebrate the official opening of the Queensferry Crossing.

The event was followed by a hog roast at Port Edgar, and a drizzly motor sail home to Granton. A good time was had by all.

Here are a few photos (by H Sillitto unless otherwise credited), more to follow.

Three bridges!

Dunbar’s coastal rowers – looked like hard work!

The Red Arrows flew over, but aborted their second pass because of low cloud.
