Sailing

Bob was an occasional sailor until in 2008 he bought Ratan, a 1988 Sadler 34 now kept in Ballachulish.

He has sailed extensively off the the coast of Scotland and has made passages to Norway, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Madeira and the Canaries.

In 2014 he sailed the Atlantic from the Canaries to Martinique (via the Cap Verde islands) with his son and in 2016 brought Ratan back to Scotland singlehanded via Bermuda and the Azores.

Ratan has twice competed in, and finished, the Scottish Island Peaks Race.
