WINDSURFERS ACROSS BRITAIN PREPARE FOR TIREE

Tiree Wave Classic

With less than a week to go, excitement is building among Britain’s finest windsurfers ahead of the 25th Tiree Wave Classic.

The world-renowned week-long event begins on the Inner Hebridean Island on Saturday 8th October 2011. It is particularly special this year as it marks a quarter of century from when the event first began.

Three time winner of the Classic, John Skye, has missed the first two events of the British Wavesailing Association Wave Tour, because he took a break after getting married.

But he wasn’t going to miss the third - Tiree.

“It’s just so special,” says John. “Tiree’s always been the highlight of the UK tour. The beaches are stunning, and you have quality wave sailing no matter what the wind direction. Everyone loves it – and the fact that it’s the 25th running, well, I just couldn’t miss it.”
