A remembrance row for the Iolaire is to be held on 2nd January departing Cuddy Point at 12 noon. The Western Isles St Ayles Skiffs will head to the Beasts of Holm, where they expect to arrive by 2pm to release small paper boats with a light and the name of one of the men lost in each of them. Spectators are welcome, a good view point will be from the Iolaire Monument, please wrap up warm.

The group of skiffs is made up from various island groups: Florence (Row-Flo), Fir-chlis (Westside rowers), Yackydoola (An Eathar), Blue Moon (Staran) and Madadh Ruadh (Stornoway rowers).
