SAILING IN COMPANY
The sailing in company event is a social event, not a race! But I am sure that skippers will be keen.
The exact route from Scalpay North harbour round the Shiant isles will be up to the lead organiser on the day and subject to tide and weather.
Yachts will gather at SCALPAY NORTH HARBOUR pontoons by Friday night 26th July 2019.
(crews wishing to eat at the award winning North Harbour Bistro Friday night are advised to book early)
The Scalpay Community Centre (right on the pier) will be open from 0800 hours for breakfast with a skipper’s briefing at 0845. The sail starts at 0930. Yachts are expected to begin arriving back at TARBERT pontoons at 1430 (not Scalpay)
Prize giving (everyone’s a winner!) will be at the Isle of Harris distillery at 1700 followed by a buffet, drinks and ceilidh dance at the Community centre in Tarbert from 1800.
Registration is £35 per vessel (up to 2 crew, with £8 supplement for each additional crew members) which includes prize, buffet and ceilidh (the bar is pay as you go) as well as berthing at Scalpay and Tarbert for 2 nights with wi-fi, showers and toilets!
Places are limited. Some rafting up on the pontoons might be necessary for the two nights berthing.
Safety is paramount and vessels must be properly equipped to undertake the passage.
