Great trip ... and many thanks from all to Quinton Nelson for organising the Rally.

We were well looked after in Donaghadee .. !!!

A great welcome was extended to the Historic boats with an Official Welcome Ceremony on Friday July 9th, together with copious amounts of food at the Meadowbank Social Club and again the following night at Donaghadee Sailing Club.

Despite the rain, there was a big turnout for the Station Centenary Ceremony on the Pier, which was a super event.
