@TireeMaritime @BartsBash amazing!

We put our shiney new fleet of training dinghies to great use this weekend when Tiree Maritime Trust took part in the Worlds Largest sailing race Bart’s Bash. This annual fundraising event takes place all over the world on the same day and this year over 9000 people took part sailing at 468 venues in 62 different countries. We may have been one of the smallest venues, but we still managed some excellent sailing and attracted some high profile support on Twitter from Olympic Sailor Luke Patience – @TireeMaritime @BartsBash amazing!

Practice for Bart’s Bash

Took our new dinghies out for a practice sail today. We’re looking forward to taking part in the world’s largest sailing event Bart’s Bash tomorrow (Sunday 20th September). We’ll be meeting at Loch Bhasapol at 09:30. Should be fun as the forecast looks a bit breezy.

Tiree Regatta 2015 Cancelled

The forecast for tomorrow (Saturday) looks like strong southerly winds and rain. With regret we’ve concluded that it wouldn’t be safe to take traditional dipping lug boats out in such conditions. We know that a lot of folks were looking forward to the Regatta as they do every year and we’re sorry to disappoint but this year the weather has been set against us.
Ever hopeful we are planning an evening sail on Friday 21st August – we’ll update with details nearer the time.
At least the wind and kite surfers are having fun…

Tiree Regatta Update

The weather for Saturday’s Regatta is not looking ideal with strong winds forecast, however, things are changing very rapidly at the moment so we may be lucky. We’ll be keeping an eye on the weather forecast and review again on Friday morning.

Here’s hoping…dipping
