Fèis na Mara na Hearadh – Harris’ first St Ayles Skiff Event.


One of the key and final events of Fèis na Mara was rowing races: Shorter 1nm races took place in Scalpay North Harbour and a longer 3.6nm race from Scalpay to Tarbert. 6 skiffs took part in the new Fèis this year. 

We were pleased to welcome Boatie Blest – Cockenzie Port Seton RC to the Isle of Harris who crewed 3 skiffs ; An Eathar, Stornoway RC, Ràmhaich an Taobh Siar and Berneray joined the races. 

Port Seton swept the board in the shorter 1nm women’s and men’s open races. The endurance race between Scalpay and Tarbert saw Port Seton taking 1st,2nd and 3rd places with the Yackydoola coming in closely behind in 4th, Madadh Ruadh in 5th and Fir Chlis, 6th. After a wet day everyone enjoyed the prize giving reception at the Harris Distillery followed by food and ceilidh in the Tarbert community centre. Look out for next year’s dates which will be announced soon.
