Tiree Maritime Trust
Thursday 3rd November 2016
7.30 pm @ the Noust
This weekend Tiree Maritime Trust will again be taking part in the Worlds Largest sailing race Bart’s Bash.
Bart’s Bash is a global sailing race taking place at hundreds of venues, with thousands of sailors in hundreds of different classes of boat around the world.
The new venue at Gott Bay proved to be very popular with everyone who attended. The shore events were well attended, with SUP races, Kayak races, a sandcastle and sand art competition as well as throwing the fisherman’s welly which was very popular with kids and grown-ups alike. The Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust had an interesting stand with information on whale and dolphin recording. It was great to see so many people on the beach all having fun in the sun.
For the first time in a number of years a separate dinghy race was held. It was great to see members of the new Tiree Maritime Trust’s sailing club taking part, with many only having started sailing May this year at our community sail training weekend. A special mention should be made of our youngest sailors Gabby Le Roux sailing with her dad Paul and Roxy Le Roux skippering the dinghy with her mum Sarah the acquitted themselves admirably in their first sailing race.
There was also a good field in the open sailing and traditional Tiree dipping lug boat classes. With a close inshore course the spectators were able to get a great view of Tiree’s distinctive sailing boats in action.
Tiree Maritime Trust would like to give a big thank you to everyone involved in this year’s Regatta. We would like to thank Kris and Aisling at the Lodge Hotel for their generous sponsorship of the event; Wild Diamond for running the shore races; William-Angus Maclean, Tim Dunlop and Steph Tanner for providing safety boats; everyone who helped out on the day and everyone who joined in and made it a great Regatta.
We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many years of sterling support for the Tiree Regatta provided by the sadly recently departed Johnny Johnston and Angus Munn. The continuing success of the Regatta is due, in no small part, to their efforts.
