Oh dear

Tomorrow's Coronation Cup is ABANDONED due to an adverse forecast.
Commenting on the decision, Race Officer Toby Marshall said, "I know this decision will disappoint a number of crews who would like to give it a go, but balancing their enthusiasm against increased risk of damage to boats or (heaven forbid) injury to personnel, as Principal Race Officer I would prefer to err on the side of caution."
The Race Officer intends to review the situation in the morning, in case the forecast eases overnight, and will update this page if there is a hope of running it.

Gael Force Marine

Thank goodness, the weather has not been Gale Force as of late. In fact we have had some wonderful sailing weather that tempted sailors out.

But we are pleased to announce that Gael Force Marine will be supporting Sail Stornoway again. Gael Force Marine for all those marine bits and bobs you need and didn't know you needed till you saw it.
