Melmore Rally this weekend Sat 10 July

The Annual Melmore Rally is this weekend, and this year we hope to leave the marina!

HW is at 05:37 so an early start is planned for 09:30.
Full race instructions will be provided on the day on VHF Ch 6.

The traditional Commodore’s inspection will be in Fanny’s Bay on Saturday evening, and the return to the Marina will be an informal cruise, with some boats electing to sail further over a long weekend. As ever we will all look forward to seeing the photographs 🙂

Have fun everyone!

Weather in Fahan Creek

Those of you with an interest in the current weather conditions in Fahan Creek can use a link on the Met and Tides section of this web-site to a personal weather station set up by William McAusland from Drama Queen at his house on the shore.  All complaints about the prevailing conditions to be addressed in writing directly to Willie! 🙂

Lough Swilly News is back in action!

Today we moved our News section to a new service from WordPress.com, so that we can continue to provide updates on the news and activity around the club.

The previous service from Blogger.com was withdrawn and it has taken a little while to migrate.

As a result, our archive of previous posts from the last few years is no longer available on-line, but we hope this will not be too much of an inconvenience.

Over the coming weeks further updates will be made and we will keep you informed.
