Yesterday we had a fantastic show of boats for the Lifeboat regatta. 12 Boats in total came to the line for racing. Probably the best show of the year. Thanks to all who took time to show up and compete.
Even better than the great show of boats was the number of those who came back to the clubhouse and showed support for the RNLI. It was a really good showing. We had a number of Lifeboat crew in attendance along with John McCarter. A few buckets were present and readily filled.
I spoke to John today and he has informed me that we collected in excess of €830. That is an extraordinary sum of money. John has expressed his gratitude for the collection which is very much needed in these times of budget tightening.
Lets hope we can do the same or better in the forthcoming Annual Prizegiving.
