A big thanks to all those who participated in this weekends events, namely Ramelton cruise and Portsalon Pint and Quart.
The Ramelton cruise had great turn out of both sail and power boats. On a very high tide the sail boats left Fahan and Rathmullan to make tracks to Ramelton. The power boats followed a little time after and soon passed out the sail boats… After a pretty wet trip up the meandering creek it was good to get a dry spot in Conways bar. All in there were 5 power boats, 3 yachts and 1 laser feva. The trip home was a little dryer and finished with a little adventure..getting into the marina in the dark.
The Portsalon P&Q had a great turn out with 12 boats taking part in the race today. In brisk winds it was a long beat to Swillymore with a pretty good swell to keep the decks clean. Once Swillymore was behind us the wind dropped and the sun made a welcome appearance. Unfortunately we were not able to get ashore but the sun made it pretty nice when sitting on deck enjoying a bite to eat and take in the views.
A handful of the fleet headed to Rathmullan and tied up, ventured ashore and enjoy some local hospitality. Results tallied and presentation made in the White Harte.
Congratulations to Japanphur on first place, Zutsy 2nd and KC on 3rd. Good to see a healthy fleet on the water for this event.
Thanks to Gerry for organising the pursuit timings and starting the boats from Fahan…. Cheers Richie.
Looking forward to a similar turnout for the Railway Tavern Regatta next Saturday @11:30am.
