Port Bàn Sailing Fortnight is here!Port Bàn Holiday Park welcomes all the sailors and families for what we think could be the 39th or 40th annual fortnight-long sailing regatta. Held first in the 70’s, the same families come back over and over again. It’s great to see the different generations and the lifelong friendships! The Port Bàn Sailing Club hosts the annual event regularly attended by over 30 dinghies. Whilst dinghies of all classes are welcome, the fleet is dominated by what looks like it is now the largest fleet of Mirror Dinghies racing in the world. The Scottish Championship only had 5 entries in 2014.
Day one saw a foul day with strong offshore winds, so no racing Monday.
Day two, no wind, so race at 5pm - let’s just say some made better decisions than others regards the wee wind and bigger tide.
If you’re on site this week, keep an eye on what’s happening right here.
Welcome to Port Bàn - on the West Coast of ScotlandPort Bàn is a secluded haven, situated near Kilberry on the beautiful unspoilt coastline of the Knapdale Peninsula, where you can take pleasure from panoramic views across the sea to Islay and Jura. The sheer beauty of the landscape and the rich diversity of wildflowers and wildlife makes Port Bàn an interesting and peaceful retreat for those who want to get away from it all.

Our caravan park is available to you for renting or buying static caravans where you can bring your tourer or motorhome or come along for a beachside campsite where we have a separate camping area for tents. There’s electric hook-up for tents, tourers and motorhomes. Keep looking through the website and see what we’ve got for you.
Argyll is beautiful and you can swim, bring your boat, paddle a canoe, go fishing, rock-pooling, cycle, walk or take a day trip to explore the area, at the same time discovering some of Scotland’s finest local food; it also is a place where children can benefit from the freedom and space Port Bàn brings. Many are content to relax in the tranquil atmosphere, whilst camping, touring or enjoying the setting sun which can be seen from every static caravan.
