The busy weekend with the start of the Donaghadee Festival includes a BBQ at the Club on Saturday evening (6-9pm) with the proceeds going to the RNLI. The cost is £5 per person so why not come along for craic and support your local lifeboat? There is also skiff racing and the raft race during the day.
It is with very deep regret that I must inform members of the sudden passing last night of our friend and fellow member Ken Wallace.

Following a very successful Topper Ulster Championships last weekend, let me introduce you to a new idea: Belfast Lough Regatta Club. The idea of this is to have fun on the water, have some fun races if you like, enjoy a BBQ and sail back again. All of the Belfast Lough clubs have signed up to be a part of this great idea. I have attached an information pack and flyer for your information. The contact details on the info pack simply replace with mine.
The plan is to meet at Ballyholme Yacht Club on Saturday 4 June and ‘sail in company’ with others from neighbouring clubs round the corner to Helens Bay beach. Don’t worry there will be lots of rescue boats, experienced helpers, instructors, support boats etc, this is about gaining experience and meeting new people, not serious racing.
I propose to take the club trailer and a rib with us, that will allow for 4 boats, we can arrange more if needed. There is of course the opportunity to transport your own boat and meet up at BYC. I can refine the details of this once I get an idea of interest. Ideally you will have some experience of sailing although your own boat is not required.
This is a brand new idea and I feel as a club we need to support it. Regattas are not what they used to be and it is important we try and relight the inter-club relationships of old to ensure their future success. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and have some fun in boats.
There is an obvious need for help with this, I would ask that if you would like your son or daughter to participate that you contribute nothing more than your time. Loading boats, manning BBQ’s at Helens Bay whatever it may be, it all helps. Please come back to me asap at email@example.com or 07714262223 if you would like more information, volunteer to help or indeed take part.
Please make an effort to support what will be a really great day out!
The summer sailing season is fast approaching! Make sure you take note of some key dates in the coming weeks.
With the clocks going forward this weekend, racing start time will revert to 2.30. Sailors and Tango crews should meet at the Club around 1.30. It has been great to see some of the juniors out sailing showing the not so young how to do it! The more the merrier and a good way to work off Easter egg excesses. Wishing everyone a happy Easter.
