The weather gods smiled upon us on Sunday for the 5th Portobello Beach Race. With a slightly later than 12:30pm start determined by the tide it meant that the sun was shining well before the race got going.

With the results now posted here is a set of photos from Gillian McKelvie covering the race.

And another set from Nigel Darling: here

The cake stall was in full swing after the race and the facilities of the Dalriada Hotel were put to good use.
