Fulmar Fever in Round Ireland

Since Saturday afternoon our own yacht Fulmar Fever has been racing in the Round Ireland Race.

A race of over 700 miles with the course “keep all the islands of Ireland to your starboard side.

Whilst on paper Fulmar Fever is one of the slowest boats she can under the handicap system still compete with the fastest boats.

The race started on Saturday in Wicklow and at this moment most boats including Fulmar Fever are on the North West of Ireland.

A true test for the crew to battle for 5-6 days and in this race they have had it all . light winds , 40 knots of wind and the unusual situation of a Northerly wind on the West Coast.

We wish Robert and his crew well. They are doing a sterling job,

you can follow the race on Yellow Brick tracker

First Day of Try Sailing

How lucky can we get ? Glorious weather and tall ships in Dunmore East at Anchor offered the best possible start to the Volvo Boland sponsored Try Sailing Series.

Over 35 people from 6 till 60 went on the water and our formula of having Optimists, Wayfarers and Cruisers ensured there was the right boat for everybody.

The very young ones in the Optimists had a blast and some of them are offspring of long lost members ex Dunmore East ; Welcome home !

Next week bookings are being snapped up and we hope to have some more spaces available to offer sound instruction and lot’s of fun.

Bookings can be made via : https://waterfordsailing.eventbrite.ie

Thank you to all our Cruiser Skippers who volunteered their yachts and time , all the rescue boat drivers and all the dinghy skippers’ you are great ambassadors to WHSC. THANK YOU !!
