Call for Logs – Gollan Cup

Dear Members,
The nights are drawing in and the cruising season, for most of us, will be coming to a close. Many yachts have voyaged beyond Lough Swilly and will have stories worth telling. I would encourage you to commit your experiences to paper and share them with the club. All logs submitted will be considered for the Gollan Cup and will be published on the web-site. The Gollan Cup will be presented at the Annual dinner on 5th November, so all entries must be received by Fri 29 October.
I look forward to reading about your adventures by sea.

Dr Paul McSorley
