Sport NI event of 17/09/16


We gathered in Culmore along with Rowers from the City of Derry Rowing Club and the Canoe club.

There must of been maybe about 100 boats in all. A great atmosphere was all around on the shore.


An official from Sport NI called for order and made a short speech on the shore advising people to proceed in an orderly fashion. In a surprise development that is more or less what happened. (Thanks to Gerard Harkin for the photos)

Good crack all round. We sailed back on a dead run the whole way home but against the tide. We were fortunate that there ws enough wind to get everyone home without the need for towing.

Many thanks to Ken Louden who brought the club rescue boat up. Well done to Kieran Doran who took on the sail into town challenge for the first time and lived to tell the tale.


LFYC boats included: Bill J/Joe McC, Anton H/Jack H, Joy W/crew, Colum F/Eve McC, Kevin T, Brendan B, Kieran D
