4rth Peace Bridge Race

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

the Peace Bridge Race is an open event. It has a simple course. From a start line at Culmore point sail around a mark at the Peace Bridge and back. The race can be as quick as 1 hour 15 or in light winds up to four hours long. It contains some interesting sailing challenges.

A very close Peace Bridge Race this year with 4 mins. separating the first five boats after a two hour long race.
Good wind held the whole way up and down. Great to see Colum and Eve out sailing. Eve once again demanded that all spiders were removed from the boat before she set sail – in fairness, a modest demand.

Congratulations to Ken L and Davy L who retain the John Hume and University of Ulster Peace Bridge Trophy for another year.
