Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival 2018

PaulG
Dear NC Cool Gang,

The Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival is coming back around, yeahhh!!!

The festival takes place next weekend from Friday evening to Sunday evening. See website for full information:
http://www.baltimorewoodenboatfestival.com/ 

The main currach events are:

1 Saturday morning Ilen River Race starting at 10:00 am sharp from the pier in Baltimore and following a similar course to last year up the Ilen River around a turning bouy and back down to the pier approx a 10 mile course..
Crew captains enter their crews Saturday morning, €5 pp. Crews to meet on Baltimore Pier at 9:00 am for unloading

Saturday afternoon NC crews row out to Sherkin for exploring..

Saturday evening crew dinner in the sailing club. (tickets required)
A challenge has been issued by the festival organisers to NC for provision entertainment,singing and dancing etc.. So we are looking for sea shanty crews or the likes for this... as well as our crown jewel in the wow-them stakes, some Hungarian dancing with Ivan et al.. Any other ideas and suggestions warmly welcomed :)

2 Sunday morning Pilot race 11:00 am currach and gandelow  crews race from the pier in Baltimore to arriving sailing boats to put their pilot aboard for the sailing race before racing back with the pilot to the pier. What could possibly go wrong with this concept..

On Sunday afternoon crews again row in Baltimore Harbour exploring..

Please register interest for 1. Saturday morning Ilen River Race and 2. Sunday rowing (the main demand for seats is for Saturday morning)

Wild camping is available in the grassy area beside the pier..

We will load trailers Thursday evening. Also we are looking for towers, down Friday evening or Saturday morning and back Sunday evening.

Best wishes,

Paul G
