Raft race waits for tide

The Oban Times - - News 9 -

AHOY! Oban’s Raft Race is look­ing for­ward to fine sail­ing weather when sailors take to the wa­ter at the an­nual event on Satur­day, Au­gust 8.

While it is dif­fi­cult to be pre­cise about an ac­tual start­ing time, Jim Edge of the Oban and Lorne Lions Club, who run the event, said: ‘It will take place as soon as the tide is right’.

Jim con­tin­ued: ‘We are de­pen­dent on the tides, how­ever peo­ple should come down at 1pm to en­joy the mu­sic from Oban FM and games for young­sters.

‘It is al­ways a great day out for all the fam­ily.’

Any group want­ing to en­ter a boat should con­tact brian@ pow­er­gen­er­a­tion.uk.com.
