Conditions are good for a corkumnavigation on Friday, in which case we need to be at Christy Ring bridge by 0750 to be sure of passing up so the gate at the club will close at 07:15. The Ria Cafe are expecting us - and will open at 0900 half an hour earlier than usual, and we can dally there for plenty of time to enjoy breakfast on the balcony in the sunshine (remember what that is?). We will need to go ashore on the bank at Wellington Bridge so wellies are recommended.
We expect to return to Shandon BC 11:30
Weather and particiants are lined up for a very pleasant morning. We need topass Christy Ring Bridge by 8:00 and Gilabbey Weir by 10:00. The other potential impediment is theESB discharge which today is 82 cumecs all day. If the flow is more than 40 cumecs we reconsider taking the south channel and we return via north channel.
Specific Safety Notes
Pass Sundays well weir cose to south bank
Pass Gilabbey weir close to north bank
In narrow water or shallow water going downstream turn theboat into the current so you can control it a row out of any dabger (especially at UCC)
