Sailing for BBC Children in Need

Tangle o’ the Isles, will be sailing in support of BBC Children in Need 2019.  Please support us.

The Objective

Our objective is to raise money for BBC Children in Need by taking on a sailing challenge. The challenge is to sail round the Isle of Mull as often as we can during the BBC Rickshaw Challenge.

Only in September will the BBC decide the date and time of the start of The Rickshaw Challenge. For planning purposes, we are assuming 10 November 2019. The finish date is already fixed. It will be in the evening of Friday 15 November 2019.

Sailing round Mull may sound like sailing for fun. But make no mistake. No-one goes sailing on the West of Scotland in November for fun! Especially not at night. Despite the experience of the crew, or perhaps because of the experience of the crew, we know that this is going to be a long, cold, wet, uncomfortable challenge.

During the Challenge, we will be regularly streaming video reports accessible via this website, and Tangle o’ the Isles will be trackable on AIS.
