TK on Tiree #5/Building Design Exhibition/Tiree Regatta

TK on Tiree 5 is almost here!

A week of kiting, relaxing, meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.

From the 1st August until the 8th AugustTraction Kiting 
will be on Tiree enjoying the vast beaches the island has to offer. The forecast currently looks like the group will be based on Gott Bay, the island's largest beach, for most of the week with strong onshore southerly winds looking to be the wind direction of choice this year.

In addition to kiting, Owain and Judith (TK founders) will be bringing along 2 X-Sails for the week which means they can be out in the rain so no matter what the weather, as long as there is wind they will be on the beach!

If you would like to try kiting or X-sailing while the team are on Tiree, please contact either Owain or Judith on 07732060459 or 07879626677. If there is no answer, please leave a message as mobile signal on the island isn't great.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
