WDC SHOREWATCH EVENT
MINI HANDMADE MARKETS
Tiree Tapestry Group is holding a series of mini handmade markets at the Rural Centre, Crossapol, throughout July and August – every Thursday, 11 – 5, except 23rd July. We will showcase the work of makers on or connected to Tiree (and possibly Coll too) with a range of arts and crafts to buy. Sometimes there may be local produce on sale. Entry is free.
We hope to raise some funds for TTG and at the same time support small local producers in a very practical way.
TIREE WAVE CLASSIC - 2015
Wild Diamond Water sports based on the Isle of Tiree have been sanctioned by the British Wavesailing Association to act as the official event hosts for the Tiree Wave Classic in October this year. We are delighted to be in a position where Tiree residents will now, for the first time in the Event’s history, be able to control the direction and success of the windsurfing event that is in its 29th year on Tiree. Key changes for 2015 will involve much more participation from local businesses and community groups on the island.
Tiree Wave Classic is the longest running professional windsurfing event in the world. It was founded in 1986 and has run to the present day. It showcases the best of the UK’s windsurfing talent across a number of fleets ranging from Juniors to World Cup Professional Windsurfers.
The Event is hosted from 2015 onward by Wild Diamond Watersports – a company based on the Isle of Tiree who have been involved with The Event almost since it’s conception.
