The last vessel to carry a commercial cargo on the Ythan Estuary was the Ashdene in 1968. Now that is about to change…
Sailing under the Jolly Roger and displaying BrewDog colours, the Admiral Redsocks and a relay of piratical crews will transport a cargo of BrewDog’s apocalyptic mother of an India Pale Ale from Ellon to reach Collieston in time to contribute to the Gala Festivities which begin with an open petanque tournament on the evening of 30th July.
The timing of the voyage is weather dependent – watch out for updates on this site, http://www.corc.me and the Collieston and Slains Blether on Facebook.
Ideally we would like to load the cargo at the riverside car park in Ellon at 0900 on Saturday 19th and we will confirm that on Friday 18th.
