The annual secular pilgrimage to Island Eddy in the inner reaches of Galway Bay is next Sunday afternoon, 15 July (low tide c. 1.40 pm), when folk will be ferried across by RIB from Ballynacourty Pier, by sailing boat from Galway Bay Sailing Club in Rinville, and perhaps even on foot from Killeenaran if the tide is low enough. If any other novice paddlers would like to join me I would leave Ballynacourty Pier at 2.00 pm, picnic and explore for an hour or two, and return at 5.00 pm. It's a short crossing of no more than 2 km and there will be lots of small boat traffic on the water for the afternoon.

Sounds good Joe, thanks for posting.
I'm probably not going to be able to make it, but hope to see you on the water sometime.

Island Eddy Update 15 July

Sailing Club excursion to Island Eddy on 15 July cancelled due rain but there will be another charity swim, from Killeenaran, in August, I believe(TBC).

The charity swim next weekend on Saturday 21 July is a marathon open-water swim across Galway Bay from Aughinish in Clare to Salthill in Galway City (www.cancercarewest.ie for details). Does WISKA ever support these events by paddling a parallel course?
