Trip into town

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Myself and Bill J (Bill’s Wayfarer) are planning a sailing trip into town on sat morning 20th March. Meeting in Culmore at 9.00am, leaving asap after that. High Tide is at 10.10. Wind forecast at F3, North. We hope to sail around the pilings that have been set for the new footbridge. Of course, any other club boats that wish to come along are welcome.

Well we went, and sailed up to the Craigavon Bridge. grand day, lovely sail. In the narrows below the Foyle Bridge near Thornhill we took a gulp in a gust but recovered using the sorrenson bailer
