Seagull Race Report
Friday 13th January 2012
The 24th Lerryn Annual Seagull race took place on the 7th of January. Much to the amazement of everyone, there was an entry of 35 boats which, like their crews, were dressed in line with the theme which was; ‘STRICTLY’. A huge crowd on the river banks cheered on the competitors who rose to new heights of skill and expertise. (No-one sank this year.)
The weather was very clement for the time of year. In our strange old climate, we have had to cancel 3 summer events because of the weather, but never a seagull race which are always held in winter!
Monies were raised for the RNLI and local charities. Prize giving took place in the Ship Inn, wherein are the committee rooms of The River Lerryn Yacht Squadron, who organise the occasion.
Some said that they really enjoyed the day, but most couldn’t remember very much about it.
A big thanks to all who made the event such a success once again.
To get a flavour of the day, look at all the photos on the Photo Gallery
