IBRA list

The website for Boat Holidays Ireland, which included a list of members of the Irish Boat Rental Association, seems to have disappeared. I don’t know whether it has been replaced or whether IBRA members have ceased cooperation. I can’t find any useful information on the website of the Irish Marine Federation.

Carrickcraft rescue

We were at Dromod when a Carrickcraft hire cruiser went aground outside the harbour in poor weather. I was impressed by how quickly Carrickcraft got a rescue crew to the scene and how efficiently they got the boat off and into safety before a depression of 988 arrived. Here are photos of the rescue.
