Sunday morning turned out to be just glorious, and the glassy waters in the harbour were disturbed only by swimmers and passing RIBS/Yaks as a team of volunteers set about divesting the harbour of Club equipment for the winter. The slimy rope workout took place from Union Hall to High Island and by early afternoon all the Club’s race marks and temporary moorings were hauled ashore and into the arms of a land-based team who towed/sorted and power washed. Several club boats were recovered at Keelbeg and are awaiting winterisation. Other Club Members have given Kevin great assistance in the last week de-rigging Quests and so on. While some craft will remain available for Sunday Dinghy Racing and Courses in the interim, the main work of winterising the Club will continue in the coming weeks and all help will be greatly appreciated.
A big thanks to everyone who was able to make it on Sunday, all the Fleets were well represented with much great work done by Junior Members, Ewan Wrenne, Eolann Miles and Conor Creswell with Ava & Mia Scarlett also attending mid-week to assist at the Sailing School.
Well done all!
