Young sailors and some not so young have been learning the art of handling a dinghy through Kintyre Seasports Project.

The sailing lessons, organised by Sid Gallagher, have run in conjunction with Campbeltown Sailing Club for the past two weeks.

This week memory lane features another young sailor, Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall née Phillips, as she was when this photograph was taken, somewhere in Argyll, in the early 1990s.

Zara has a firm grip of the rudder in this picture. Earlier this week, in a capsize, a Campbeltown dinghy’s rudder plunged to the bottom of the loch after becoming detached.

On Tuesday afternoon, a professional diver Greg Barrett, searched for the missing piece of equipment but was unable to locate it on the sea bed.

Zara Phillips has gone on to compete in yacht races during Cowes week with her husband, former England rugby player Mike Tindall.

Zara says that she likes being out on the water and making the best decisions to get in front of everyone. 25_c28memorylane02_Zara_Phillips
