Boat park filled

Craning out of boats has finished, and the club has managed to squeeze in a lot more boats than last year.  A big thankyou to John Hagan for organizing the process and ensuring everything ran like clockwork.  And many thanks to all the volunteers and boat owners who came out to help one another on the day.

Regatta Day Fun

Regatta Day proved to be a very successful event for SLYC. Many visitors and club members participated in the fun. Just a couple of prize winners are shown below. The Mayor of Ards, Councillor Philip Smith, was there to help congratulate the winners (shown in both photos alongside our own Sailing Captain Brian Corry). The photo on the left highlights Lady Commodore, Annie Gleadhill presenting first Prize in the IRC2 Class to Patrick Spratt.
