Clipper Punt Race

LFYC are pleased to announce the 2014 Clipper Punt Race.

Lough Foyle Punts are the traditional fishing boats of Lough Foyle. The working rigs have long ago been replaced with larger racing sails. They are traditional boats but they are lightweight and fast.


The Skipper from each of the clipper boats will be invited to helm a punt in a race at Culmore Point at 6.30 on Wed 25th. The Punt will have at least one local crew man who knows the ropes. The details of the course will be set by the race officer on the night.
There will be three races, two heats in a six boat fleet then a final featuring the best three of each of the heats.

This will be a spectacular event not be missed. Get down early and make sure you have a good viewing spot.
