Opening Day Lunch

The Opening Day Lunch on Sunday was thoroughly enjoyed by the large numbers of members who attended in fine sunshine.

Many thanks to Kerry, who managed to cater for us all with a delicious lunch, even though the numbers were rather more than we anticipated!

Here is Roise McSorley’s fine poem, for which she won a prize from the Commodore.

The summer cruise

‘Whoosh’, goes the waves against our boat,

I finally realise we are afloat,

I need to get up to find my coat.

‘Flap’, goes the sails in the breeze,

We are once again on the high seas,

I must wrap up before I freeze.

‘Creek’, goes the tiller as we set our course,

I better stop shouting before I am hoarse,

The whining wind is like a wild horse.

‘Poop’, is the sound of the fog horn,

In the mist of the early morn,

I really wish I was home and warm!

By Roise McSorley.

Opening Day Lunch on Sunday

Just a quick reminder of the opening day lunch at 1pm, Sunday 17 April.
Prices are per last year: €15 per adult / €4 euro for kids

Kerry Eyre is providing us with some traditional fare, including desserts. There’ll be some nice background music too and I can confirm that the Guinness tap has been fully serviced.
We’ll also have a quick presentation for the winners of the opening day race, plus a few spot prizes. Plus, it’s my first speech of the season – something not to be missed!
I look forward to seeing as many of you and your crews [and your guests] there as possible..and if you can’t make the lunch, please pop in for a drink at least.
