Kinramer Trophy Model Yacht Race

Wednesday 18 July 2012

There was an excellent turnout for the Kinramer Trophy model yacht race on Sunday. Held on the last day of Festival Week, the weather was beautiful and the breeze was good and strong for a proper race. Seven boats entered the race.

There was a last-minute entrant to the race, with two of the crew of the St Colmcille currach, Ivor Neill and Brendan Roof, racing Loughie McQuilkin's boat, the Shamrock. They raced this fine boat so well that they only went and won the race!

Second (again!) was Brian Teggart, with Benji McFaul taking third.
