VIKING LORD – AZAB2019

Viking Lord (Westerly Falcon 35) will be setting of shortly bound for Falmouth to take part in the Azores & Back Race (AZAB2019).   Myself and John Gray will compete in the 2-handed category racing to Ponta Delgada on the island of São Miguel and then racing back after a brief stop.   The total course will be over 2400 nautical miles and we expect a passage time of 12-14 days for each leg.  After 2 years preparation, a qualifying voyage to Rockall,  training and fitting out, we are ready for the challenge and look forward to crossing the start line on the 1stJune with the fleet.

As part of this enterprise we are raising money for 2 local charities –  NI Motor Neurone Disease Association and Habitat for Humanity.  All donations to these very worthy charities will be greatly appreciated.  To encourage donations John’s Employer,  will double the amount we raise ourselves.  Donations can be made through Virginmedia page –

Anyone making a donation can submit a predicted finish time for our trip with prizes for the nearest predictions –  simply send a message with your donation and include your total predicted finish time  in Days, Hours, Minutes & Seconds.  Time should be overall time for both legs.

Our progress can be followed on-line via tracker (http://azab.co.uk/)  and we also have a blogspot –  http://www.sailblogs.com/mmeber/vikinglord/

Looking forward to a good sailing and a great trip.

All,

A punt has been arranged to carry passengers to and from the pier at Portsalon on Saturday.  First pick up scheduled for 2pm.The price for a round trip is 5 Euro pp.  

Again thanks to Gerry for arranging the set off times for the pursuit race.

Forecast not looking too bad.. winds NNW, 10-15kts with unbroken sun so don’t forget the factor 50!

See you at the start line @ 10am.

PortSalon Bells

The Portsalon Bells to held next Saturday May 11th will be a Pursuit Race.

The format will be the same basis as previous Pint and Quart races which where great fun.

Ritchie has kindly agreed to organise the start times for each boat which will be published in advance once we have a clearer picture of expected weather for the day.

These races always bring out the fleet and we would certainly hope that everyone can get involved .
