Schull CRBI crew on scheduled rota for the regular Wed. exercise.This Wed. our crew, under the vivacious, and, ever-smiling helm, Jackie O’Reilly, saw the crew plot course for the beautiful North Harbour of Cape Clear, on a calm and clear evening. On board with Jackie were Aidan Coughlan, Dave O’Brien, and, Michelle Looney. Shore crew was provided by Launch Authority, Tom McCarthy. The occasion was marked by a presentation to Schull Community Inshore Rescue by Niall O’Regan of An Siopa Beag, Cape Clear. This was a donation from the proceeds of the Schull Harbour Sailing Club BBQ held on Cape Clear in July. Normally this BBQ, organized by Tadhg Dwyer of SHSC, follows the annual weekly league race Schull –to- North Harbour, Cape Clear. Unfortunately, due to the pea-soup conditions at the time, the race was abandoned. Not to be outdone by the weather, a ferry was organized and an excellent turn-out from the Sailing Club, saw upwards to 60 members and friends dis-embark at North Harbour, for an excellent BBQ, laid on by Niall O’Regan and staff Our thanks to Niall O’Regan of An Siopa Beag for this kind, and, thoughtful, gesture.
