Further detail on all procedures will be detailed in amended 2021 competitors packs which will be provided to all competitors shortly after closure of online entry for the 2021 event. Potential competitors should note that online entries will be allowed up until midnight on Monday the 4th Oct (possible extention TBC).Any queries about the format of this years event can be directed to:Tel: 07712159205Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgIn the meantime, if you haven’t done so already, get your ferries and accommodation booked and get signed up! 📷: Richard Whitson - www.2far2see.co.uk#twc #onlyone #tiree #windsurf #windsurfing #wavesailing #bwa @windsurfmagazine @windsurfing_uk @redhandedtv @calmacferries @event_scotland @argyllandbute @discover_tiree @obantimes @inveraray_castle @ryascotland @thescottishsalmoncompany @british_wavesailing @britishwavesailingassociation @wild_diamond_tiree @continentseven ...

Tiree Wave Classic 2021…. is….. ON!!! Looking all the way back to 2019, the last two years seem more like 10 since we had our last wave sailing competition. After dialogue with Argyll & Bute Department of Environmental Health last week, we can confirm that we have the final go ahead to proceed with the event!So who will be back to defend their titles from 2019?! Who will be the new ‘ones to beat’ in each division and who will claim the ultimate prize of 2021 BWA Champion in the men’s and ladies pro fleets! The answers will all become clear in five weeks time!#itson #twc #onlyone #bestwhenyouveearnedit ... See MoreSee Less
Stuck at the beach...Thats a bit like how we have been feeling for the last 18 months since the last event...However, things are starting to look more hopeful for this years event in October and we are in discussions with all relevant parties to see if we can run a real barnstormer of an event for this Autumn!! We will keep you updated as plans develop but for now - save the dates:9th - 15th October (inclusive) 2021!!! ... See MoreSee Less
9th - 15th (inc) October 2021With tourism about to recommence in Scotland and the vaccine roll out going smoothly in the uk, we hope that we may be on track to deliver the Tiree Wave Classic 2021 this October!Worth remembering to book your ferries early since it is likely to be busier than usual this year!See you all soon!#backtowork #tiree #watersports #windsurfing #wavesailing ...

To all Competitors, present and past and friends of the event,Although this email may not come as a surprise, it is with sadness that I write to inform that we have taken the decision not to proceed with the March 2021 Tiree Wave Classic Event at this time.The risks presented by the novel Coronvirus are still too great to jeopardise the event, its competitors and the population of Tiree by proceeding with the event at this time and after extensive consultation with Argyll & Bute Councils Environmental Health Department, we feel that this is the only correct course of action at this time. It is our intention to now look to bring the Tiree Wave Classic event back to its original calendar position in mid October, with a plan to run the 2021 Tiree Wave Classic from the 10th - 16th (Inc) October 2021!Obviously Covid may still be a strong consideration in October but we intend now to turn all of our efforts to being able to deliver a covid proofed event, later this year. We would ask registered competitors at this time to email us and let us know whether you prefer to roll over your entry to October, or whether you require a refund at this point. We hope that many of you will be able to consider attending in October, should we be in a position to go ahead with the event at that time. Yours sincerelyWilliam Maclean - TWC Event Host ...
