Argyll & Bute Council confirm funding package supporting the Tiree Wave Classic for the next three years!
Argyll & Bute Council have been stalwart supporters of the Tiree Wave Classic for the last fifteen years or more and once again have demonstrated just how much they value this event with a substantial three year commitment to the event covering 2015, 2016 and 2017.
This level of support was pledged largely due to the previous success of the Tiree Wave Classic under the stewardship of Jim Brookes Dowsett of Pura Vida Boardriders (the previous Event Host).
William MacLean from Wild Diamond (The Event host for 2015) commented:
“This level of financial commitment from Argyll & Bute Council gives the Event the opportunity to move forward with new confidence in the next three years. Additionally it means that we are now in a position to look for commercial or corporate sponsors for the Event with a view to moving the Tiree Classic back towards becoming a world cup wave event as per the 2007 Tiree Windsurfing World Cup. I was thrilled when ABC committed in the way they did”.
