We were having the laugh recently that our best days out this year were in January and February - calm and cold and clear! There's a wee fleet of us up here in the NW, launching from Donegal Bay to the Foyle. This year saw us on Inishmurray, (off!) Rathlin O Beirne, Tory, Inishtrahull and Islay. There is almost always good times to be had on the Swilly* if it's blowing and Mulroy is doable in a gale, if you don't have any particular Grá for your props and skeg!
Visitors are always welcome. I'd especially like to organise a link up with the Ribnutters from the Western Isles & Scroatland
*Jellicoe concealed his fleet in there in 1916
