Who Makes it Happen?

The event is organized by the Joint Regatta Committee which comprises up to five members appointed by each of the organising clubs, together with any other non-voting members the Committee chooses to appoint in order to increase its pool of expertise. All members of the JRC are volunteers maintaining the tradition of this great event.

The Week is run by a hard-working Race Team who give their time freely and willingly to provide the best possible racing and results service, sometimes under very difficult circumstances, and they are assisted by the fleet of Official Boats.

Many businesses, organizations and individuals also provide much needed help in making the event a success. Thanks are due in particular to staff at Craobh Marina for helping to get the Week off to a good start and especially Nerabus Gin for supporting the welcoming reception. Also to staff at Dunstaffnage & Kerrera Marinas, Argyll & Bute Council, the Coastguard and the RNLI.

The Joint Regatta Committee is also very grateful to Thomas Tunnock Ltd, Owen Sails, Tobermory Harbor Association, Scottish Canals  Ltd for their generous contributions towards our development and running costs.
