Upcoming events this weekend – Fèis na Mara na Hearadh & Prestwick CR Regatta

The Isle of Harris Marina are organising an exciting event this summer called Fèis na Mara na Hearadh. The maritime festival will start in Harris tomorrow – Wednesday 24th July to Saturday 27th July. 

One of the key and final events of Fèis na Mara will be St Ayles Skiff Coastal Rowing races. Shorter 1nm race will take place in Scalpay and a longer 3.2nm race from Scalpay to Tarbert. Races will take place on Saturday 27th July 2019 from 10am. The prize-giving will be held in the Harris Distillery and there will a cèilidh in the Tarbert village Hall to close the festival. 

It is hoped that the coastal rowing races at the Feis will encourage more participation in the sport of skiff rowing and promote interest in Harris’ own skiff ‘The Hearach’ which will soon be in build.​
