July 13th Ceilidh

After the Parade of Boats in the outer harbour comes the Ceilidh in D'Anglers or as most know it, the Sea Angling Club. Run by Falmadair, it's a chance to catch up with old friends, have a wee drinkie and listen to some - yet to be confirmed - music.

Falmadair is heavily involved in the restoration and sailing of the old traditional boats of the Outer Hebrides. They maintain and sail the lovely Jubilee, Broadbay and an Sulaire sgoths.

You might be even thinking about tactics for the Coronation Cup later in the week. Either way, it'll be a fine evening.
Times and costs to be confirmed.

There's a lovely report from the 1902 Coronation Cup you might like to read here.

Parade of boats - July 13th

To start the week of festivities at Sail Stornoway this year there will be a Parade of Boats. Yes, boats not just sail - rowing boats too. If you are here on July 13th then get out in your boat and enjoy the pleasure of being on the water with others.

Bound to be sunshine again so you can show off your boat, admire others' boats and generally have a fine old time.

Times of the Parade will be available closer to the event.

It's coming together

The dates for this years Festival are the 12th - 16th of July, during the same week as the popular Heb Celt Fest so you can visit both on the same visit for a fine few days on our lovely island. You'll be pleased to hear the sun has been shining today and the air warm with just the merest of breezes so it is sure to be a good year weather wise. Hopefully.

The Dinghy Tuition for youngsters will be happening again utilising the fine tuition of Mr Tim Pickering. If you would like more details, please contact Angela by email for more details. Early booking is advised as it is very popular.

We will be bringing you more details of the range of events  over the following weeks. Suffice to say it will be brill; Sgoth sailing, Rowing and sailing events not forgetting the social side.

Toodledoo for now.
