Dates for your diaries – LochBoisdale 22nd & 23rd May 2020

Fèis Mara na Hearadh (Isle of Harris Maritime Festival) – Sat 1st August 2020

After a successful regatta last year, Robert and Cheryl Taylor will be hosting another next year in Loch Boisdale. They will both be at Loch Tummel Fresh Water Sprints and you can chat to them there about the regatta.

“All the skiffs and teams of the Outer Hebrides will be attending, alongside a number of teams from mainland Scotland as well. On Friday there will be a Blessing of the Boats at 14:00h, followed by sprint racing in the harbour; the day will close with a jam session at the Lochboisdale Hotel featuring local musicians. Saturday will host the main event; a series of races around a 2km triangular route starting just outside the harbour and finishing in the marina. Prize giving at 17:00h, followed with a Ceilidh in the Hotel at 20:00h.”

Fèis Mara na Hearadh(Isle of Harris Festival of the Sea) have also set a date for next year’s skiff races which is now on SCRA calendar – Saturday 1st August 2020. It is hoped that the coastal rowing races in Harris 2020 will encourage more clubs from mainland Scotland to come to the Hebrides and promote interest in Harris’ own skiff ‘The Hearach’ – which will be ready in time for the festival.
