Ruth II outings for our Juniors

Our juniors had a great night last Wednesday aboard Oyster 62′ Ruth II.
Thank you so much to Liam Shanahan who took four groups of junior sailors out into the bay.
Each of the 30 juniors got a chance to helm the boat and got a tour of Nav systems on board.

We wish you many happy and safe journeys on your new boat.

March for the Ocean (against plastic)

Flossie, An 11 year old girl, from Dun Laoghaire has been asked to organise a march against plastic on behalf of Ireland that is happening on the same day around the world, so London, Washington Rio De Janeiro etc.

The march will be happening at 2.30pm on Saturday 9th June, leaving from The Royal Marine Hotel, then marching towards the West pier where one of her Seabins are going in.

 Flossie has been cleaning the beaches weekly in this area since last July and has become quite famous for it. The Irish Times wrote about her last year as well as many other magazines and newspapers worldwide. 
They are hoping to get around 1000 people to the march  and to have lots of yachts (flotilla)sporting anti-plastic signs in the Harbour, that would be brilliant!
