Lifeboat Regatta Sat 2nd Oct


This weekend is the Lifeboat Regatta.  Race start is 2pm at Fahan.  I am hoping to fit 2 races into the afternoon.   It’ll be a super Saturday style event with back to back races so prepare for a rapid turn and depart again.  Your finish time of race 1 is your start time of race 2.  Please prepare your stopwatch for this!! 

Forecast is Southerly so should get away with a nice kit run down the Lough. 😊 

After the race we will retire back to the clubhouse for some refreshments and hopefully we will have some representation of the lifeboat crew in attendance. 

Please show your support for the invaluable service that the RNLI shows us without question. 

Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday.

Annual Prize-giving 2021.

The dinner dance date that was entered into the club handbook at the time of going to print was a provisional due to ongoing pandemic.

As we did not know how this year would play out the date was lightly pencilled in to keep you aware of a date of some kind that we really wanted to keep.

The revised date will probably be early November.
A firm confirmation date will follow very soon..

For the newbies in the club, this is a black tie affair…

This should provide you with adequate time to get that new frock you have been looking at now for some time and an excuse to wear it…

And for the ladies, you can also kit your man out in his finery too with a daper Tuxedo, OR frock, what ever fancies your tickle!!!
