Mystery regatta trophy winners

This picture came from the Orkney Archives, taken by Wilfie Marr quite a few years back. I'm guessing these folk are trophy winners from Kirkwall Regatta but I have no idea who is here or when.

I suspect that's the crew of the Barabel that used to be moored in Kirkwall basin for years when I was a boy.

The chap sitting with arms crossed is Archie Laughton and at the other end of the table is his brother (cant remember his name ).Don't know the chap in the white jersey but standing next to him is a young Phil Brough the painter. They would have been sailing the yacht Barabel.

The man in the white jumper is Arthur Finlayson, my great grandfather. I believe winning the Orkney Cup. He lived at 9 Thom Street.
