Foynes Yacht Flotilla Set Sail for Riverfest

18th April 2011
Foynes Yacht Flotilla Set Sail for Riverfest

Foynes Yacht Club members will be sailing to Limerick City on Saturday, April 30 to participate in the 2011 Riverfest, which the people of the city celebrate every year.

The flotilla consisting of 15 vessels will leave Foynes at 2pm on the Saturday and arrive at Steamboat Quay approximately at 5.30pm, where they will berth for an hour before sailing into Limerick Docks for an overnight stay. When the boats are secure the hungry crews will sample the night-life and cuisine of Dolan's Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant for the fun-filled evening.

'This tradition of members sailing to Limerick from Foynes has been to the forefront of the club for many years, and we would like to build it up and keep going it going on an annual basis, and show how Foynes Yacht Club can be part-take in the cultural weekend of music and craic', Commodore Tom Murray said.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
