Tiree Wave Classic 2009

Just announced this week, Tiree Waveclassic returns to the island for 2009 !!

The world’s best windsurfers will compete against each other at the UK’s premier windsurfing competition, the 2009 Tiree Wave Classic. Running from 10 to 16 October 2009, the 6-day event gets dedicated worldwide TV coverage as competitors brave the full Atlantic furies of wind and waves off this remote and exposed Hebridean island. Set up in 1986 and sanctioned to World Cup level in 2007, the competition showcases Scotland as a world-class events destination and helps boost tourism throughout the area. Tiree’s rugged coastline, superb waves and £5000 prize fund will provide the riskiest and most adventurous challenge yet for windsurfing’s elite competitors.

The island guarantees to be absolutely mobbed that particular week. Struthan Cottage is booked during the classic. Read more all about the event at the Tiree Wave Classic Website.
