Calves Week Regatta in West Cork gets a boost when it begins in two weeks time with the completion of the new North Harbour pontoon in Schull this week.
The new pontoon that comes complete with a purpose-built walkway was finished this week as our photo above shows.
As Afloat.ie reported on July 10th, the long-awaited facility at the popular boating harbour finally got underway with the arrival of a jack-up rig for pile driving.
And it wasn't long before the piling was completed as Afloat.ie reported on July 23rd.
"The pontoon is a boon for Calves Week Regatta"
According to Schull Harbour Sailing Club, the contract for the pontoon was expected to take six weeks to complete, but due to favourable weather the contractor, L&M Keating has completed it well ahead of schedule, a boon for Calves Week and other activities at the boating centre.
