Sail was once the life blood of the Caribbean. The film tells the compelling story of a tradition on the verge of extinction.

Dear Backers,

You are invited to a very special event...on September 14th the harbour of Stornoway, Isle of Lewis will come alive with a parade of sail to announce our UK Premiere & opening night film at the 3rd Hebrides International Film Festival​ with further screenings on Barra, Harris and the communities of Berneray and Ness.

We are very excited to premiere our film for the very first time in the UK on Scottish soil as many of the first boatbuilders on the island where Vanishing Sail was filmed, came from Scotland. The Hebrides International Film Festival’s commitment to bringing meaningful international stories to their remote islands resonates deeply with our outreach programme for the film: to engage with sailors, boat builders, coastal communities and maritime heritage around the world.

Thank you to our supporters Rural Nations & Mast Partners for this unique opportunity.

      So pleased to hear that my little donation now has more than sails and seems to have wheels that are moving at quite a pace. I live in London and I hope we can see her there with full Royal regalia, or certainly TV coverage. Well done and thank you for your hard work.
