Cushendall Sailing and Boating Club members Mary and James Farrell sailed a mile for Sport Relief on Sunday. Thanks to sponsorship from the members they raised almost £200 for the good causes.
Cushendall Sailing and Boating Club’s 2008 sailing programme starts next Sunday (Easter Sunday) and there is a full programme of events until Christmas.

Terry and Gareth Rowan are currently sailing the Fastnet race on Snow Lion.
They are having a great race and where 8th boat to round the Fastnet at twenty past four this morning. It looks likely that they will finish high up in what is left of the fleet.
