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

Portsalon Pint and Quart Results

In sunny Force 7 conditions, the Portsalon Pint and Quart Pursuit Race provided more than enough excitement on Sunday.

The smaller boats opted to head straight to Portsalon, and larger boats battled the swell to round Swillymore and then surf downwind back to the finish.

ICC assessment Course – 9 August (eve) and 10th August (one day)

There are still some places remaining on the forthcoming ICC Assessment Course.

The International Certificate of Competency is recognised world-wide by yacht charter companies and in many countries is the minimum qualification required to charter a yacht abroad.

The theory and written assessment will be on Monday 9 Aug 2010 evening 1800hrs to 2200hrs, followed by a full day assessment on the water on Tuesday 2010 Aug 10.

The course cost is being shared between the participants and is likely to be between €165 and €300 max, depending on numbers and previous qualifications.

If you are interested, please contact Antoin MacGabhann for further details.
