Coverage of Clipper Homecoming Festival…‘Legenderry’

#CLIPPER COVERAGE - To mark the stopover in Londonderry of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, BBC 1 Northern Ireland will present an hour-long programme tomorrow evening at 7pm.

The show presented by Claire McCollum and Gavin Andrews, will bring viewers a flavour of the north-west city where celebrations are expected to attract thousands of families and sightseers.

The homecoming celebration is one of the biggest events to be held in preparation for Derry-Londonderry's year as UK City of Culture in 2013, as the city welcomes the racing yachts to the Foyle including a very special boat bearing the city's name.

We've got a favour to ask

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.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
