Transition year Sailors from St Josephs Secondary School Tulla

Written by Jim O Sullivan

On Saturday 14th April we took Students from Transition year in the local secondary school out for a sail to see if they enjoyed sailing and being out on the water.  We had great weather and they had a ball.

Thanks to all the helpers who helped on the day especially the Junior Instructors who brough them out on the Omegas.  They were Sarah Byrt, Aoife Ward, Patrick Donnelan,Roisin Fallon and Luke O' Sullivan.  These were ably assisted by Margaret Hynes, Roisin Stynes, Lelia O' Shaughnessy and Coranne Heffernan.  thanks to all involved the students had a great day and wrote a lovely report on thier website www.sjt.ie  see below for some of the photos of the day.

Spring Regatta

Written by Billy O Mahony

Finally, great to get some good sailing under the belt.

Conditions were great with a few blows coming through to spice things up and only one or two beats where crew had to trim to leeward to keep the main open.

Well done to all the prize winners (we'll get ye next time!).
1. Margret Hynes & Mike Hayes (**four** 1st places!)
2. Mike & Niamh Haig
3. Des McMahon & Pat Biesty
Special mention to Sean O'Dea and Mike Hynes who sailed with the grown-ups, crossing the line first in the final race and being very close on other occasions.
In the Junior section, well done to Sarah Byrt who took first place.
Thanks also to Carol Anne & Alex O'Sullivan and Samantha Harding for preparing the BBQ in Donnellan's and all those who brought a dish and helped out with the many other tasks that go in to the day:

* Chris Davies & Tom Hynes on the committee boat.
* Kevin Ryan & Emmet O'Mahony on rescue
* Roisin Stynes on registration

Thanks also to Seamus and Anne in Donnelans  for loaning us the bbq for the day
