Artist's Description

This is DRUM, close-reaching past Reisa an t-Sruith in the Sound of Jura opposite the Gulf of Corryvreckan.

Woosh
WOW!
Gone!

Drum has an interesting history, having originally been commissioned by Simon Le Bon, lead singer of Duran Duran, with the purpose of taking part in the 1985 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. Unfortunately, during the Fastnet race in 1985 Drum encountered severe weather resulting in the fourteen ton keel falling off, capsizing the yacht with all 24 crew members still onboard (fortunately nobody was seriously injured).

Subsequently, Drum successfully competed in the 1985/86 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race, coming in third overall.

Drum is now owned by Arnold Clark and is used mainly for corporate charter days.
