Ill miss the turkey race but the hurricane 5.9 will be on the water and as always heres an update of things in belfast lough www.facebook.com/groups/412080215518344/permalink/1595600463832974/Comrades, this Sunday is the final day's racing at the Bosun Bob's Frostie Series at Royal North. Four races are scheduled with the first gun at 12.56. HW is at 10.40 and the wind is looking fresh if not a tad blowy!
So who is going to pick up the new perpetual trophy? It looks like it will go down to the wire, a battle between Paul McLaughlin & Owen McKinley from Cushendall versus Trevor D'Arcy & Ginge from Carrickfergus, but can Hammy Baker, Bob Espey, Flipper, Stephen McLernon, Barry Mac or Chris Penny mess them up so I can sneak into first?? And pigs might fly! It's going to be tighter than a badgers backside!
Prize giving and the fabulous Christmas dinner will happen in the club straight after racing. If you would like to come along, it is not too late, please let me know before the end of today. PS, please leave your cars at home so you can have a few Christmas drinks 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Nuff said, it was baltic as all the photos show. Thanks to Gerry, Helena and all the extended Jonny, Frank and Capn Meharg and crews for observing the madness. I only made it as far as the postponement flag before my fingers threatened amputation so we bravely retreated to the slip. Wife swapping this week featured Barry Mac standing in for Liam Donnelly who was seen nursing some ribs and a whiskey on the shore. ... See MoreSee Less
