Isle Of Man - Cruisers
(1) The second Sapphire Series Offshore Race - and cruise in company - to Peel is now only ten days away.
For some skippers this will be the first time to sail to the Isle of Man, and I put together some notes which are attached, I hope they may be helpful. They are also intended to outline options at a planning meeting after racing on Wednesday 29th May.
Skippers intending to race or cruise to Peel, please let me know so that I give Peel Harbour Office the numbers.
(2) Tomorrow, Tuesday evening, Brian Lennon will crane in Blue Air. Other boats will also crane in and Jim Boylan will raise Shockwave's mast - good luck to everybody. Pascal Fischer sent the photograph below of another boat on a flatbed. Glad it didn't crane-in here, the €60 would hardly cover it.
Garry Owens, Cruiser Class Captain.
