An exciting afternoon in Ramsey Bay

An exciting afternoon in Ramsey Bay

Billed as the ‘scenic route’ to Laxey the Atom Services coastal dinghy race from Ramsey to Laxey was held on Saturday

A fleet of twelve boats assembled on the beach in front of the Manx Sailing & Cruising Club, no doubt boosted by the forecast, north-westerly wind allowing a downhill sleigh ride as opposed to the more usual uphill (windward) slog.  Full report on this link - Atom Services Ramsey to Laxey 2017

The race normally takes between 2 to 3 hours though with the right conditions, the fastest time of 73 minutes, set by Danny Boyes and Jason Hyett in 2010 in the B14 could be broken.

New Rib for MS&CC

On Sunday the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club in Ramsey celebrated the launch of a brand new Patrol boat.  The RIB delivered from Welwyn Garden City the day before was donated by Dr May Shiu Chan in memory of Neil, her husband, and the event was an opportunity to remember Neil’s hard work as a safety boat volunteer.  Neil’s family were present, as well as Club members and Neil would have approved of the modern 4-stroke engine, since he did not enjoy the vagaries of the old 2-stroke.  The Rev’d David Greenwood kindly said a few words of blessing, hoping all who crewed the RIB, and those wet clients it will help in the future, safe and happy sailing.

The RIB was safely launched with May at the helm, and Emily Kee, Neil’s niece, also volunteering to patrol the dinghy race, which turned out to be a calm affair!
