Preparation for Liffey descent and small boat Rally

Saturday 19th May 2006

Liffey Cruise, Liffey Small Boat Rally and BBQ

Today we have an early start with a drop down on to the Liffey through the sea lock, then up the river with an alternative view of Dublin City to Trinity Weir, Islandbridge where we once again party.

Afternoon: as the tide drops we retrace our route back down the Liffey to Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club where in the evening we have a barbecue and party at the clubhouse.

We will be mooring overnight at Poolbeg

Small Boat Rally

We're conscious that not all members have boats and some of those that do don't have one suitable to bring up the canals to Dublin.  This small boat rally is designed to facilitate you!  This small boat rally is part of our main event and all members are very welcome.

Those who participate will be invited to the BBQ and party in the Poolbeg Yacht Club that night. 

Please notify any of the organising committee of your intentions to support this event and note that there is no charge!! Please note that the small boats rally (dinghies) etc must launch at Poolbeg slip not later than 11:00.

A limited number of places are available on Dublin-branch boats for IWAI members without suitable craft.
