Boat Naming Ceremony for Carrickfergus-Based Disabled Sailing Charity, Belfast Lough Sailability

#sailability – Weather presenter Cecilia Daly performed a weather-themed boat naming ceremony at Carrickfergus at the weekend for a new member of the Belfast Lough Sailability flotilla which was funded by The Lloyds Bank Foundation for Northern Ireland, and Sainsburys. The yellow-decked, orange-sailed Hansa 303 was appropriately named Sunny.

Belfast Lough Sailability is the Carrickfergus-based charity that trains, educates and encourages people with disabilities, on the water, in sailing boats, motor boats and kayaks

Next summer, with assistance from Carrickfergus Marina and Carrickfergus Sailing Club, "BLS" will host the Hansa 303 Irish Championship for sailors with disabilities – August 1 & 2.
