The Tiree Wave Classic, one of the biggest events on the UK wave tour and a former international event, is coming up on the 12th of October. Full event coverage will be over on our sister site, www.boards.co.uk but stay tuned for the Boardseeker podcast too.
The event is sure to attract all of the top UK pro sailors including Ben Proffitt, Jamie Hancock, John Skye, Phil Horrocks, Ross Williams, etc, but will there be a few international riders that could upset the rankings too? Albert Pijoan who rose the ranks of the PWA in Pozo over the last year or two has already confirmed his attendance, Justyna Sniady will be pushing the standard of the ladies fleet, but there's rumours of a few more international riders too. Stay tuned for full details! For now, check out Albert in action here and watch some classic, retro Tiree footage from 1987 below!!!
