Howth Yacht Club
Rebrand for 'ISA', now just 'IS'....
There was a great crowd to greet Conor Fogerty back from his OSTAR victory last night - the club presented him with a very special rum and he also received a uniquely labelled bottle of Jameson...
Some of the photos from yesterday's prize-giving at the Sovereigns Cup in Kinsale. Congrats to the large numbers of Howth boats that travelled to compete and in particular to winners Maximus, Bite the Bullet and Demelza (also won the inaugural 'family boat' prize).
There are still some places left on our 'Taste of Racing' J80 Class for Volvo Dún Laoghaire Regatta - contact Karen in the club office to sign up and join us for a great weekend - racing across from Howth on Friday evening, in the bay on Saturday and a race home on Sunday, all for €100 per person! With a specially appointed skipper, this is a great way to learn how to race the J80s and enjoy of the biggest social events of the year. 01 8322141 (quickly!)

Ireland's Eye Ferries
Yesterday was so calm that we were able to get pictures of the stack in silouette. Today though the wind is coming from the north east and we won't be able to do landing trips. We should be able to do trips around.
It looks like the weather and tides will suit this weekend for seeing lots of seals. Here's some from yesterday.
Great news !! We've been nominated and made the final shortlist for the Marine Tourism and Leisure Operator of the Year at the Marine Industry Awards. The awards take place on 29th June in Galway. Wish us luck.
As there are gale warnings and small craft warnings in operation for the coasts, we will not be able to do any trips today. We'll be back again tomorrow.
Check this out!
Something a little bit different for this weekend's Howth Trad Fest!!
