    The future prospects for sailing tourism in Scotland will be the focus of a research project taking place over the next few months, funded by Highlands & Islands Enterprise, The Crown Estate and Scottish Canals.

    The project, called ‘Building our Capabilities’, is being undertaken by EKOS Ltd and will provide an update on the current economic contribution sailing makes to the Scottish economy and identify potential for growth across the industry.
