The raid on Portpatrick was like a scene from Mad Max. Ribs from 4-11 metres, Zapcats, jetskis, hardboats, an ILB, two Northern Ireland Police ribs and a microlight aircraft, crewed by a motley selection of weird characters in Viking helmets blasted across the Irish sea to be met by some men in skirts playing the bagpipes.

Great event!

Hi All,

Many thanks to the photographer from the local Newtownards Chronicle Newspaper for supplying these images. I believe some will also be printed in the Newspaper as soon as possible.
