Raft Race 2008 Programme

Printer-friendly versionSend to friendPDF version

YES! It's Raft Race time again and I have it on good authority (WELL Rose Neill on BBC News) that the weather is going to be good. We seem to have a lot of entries this year so it is shaping up to be a really good weekend.

Remember we will take entries tomorrow right up to 3pm if you have the entry fee. This money all goes to the RNLI and helps to train our volunteer crews and to keep our two Lifeboats operational.

We are very pleased this year to unveil our new Lifeboat 'The William Gordon Burr' who will be carrying out her first public relations duty tomorrow with the crew.

On Sunday after the Church Service in the beautifully restored Town Hall in Portrush (everyone welcome), there is the first ever Beach Volleyball Competition organised by Brian Moore of Club Soi... Northern Ireland v The Rest of the World. Portrush Lifeboat Crew might even be persuaded to try their hand at this!

The History Book From Laura to Katie written by our Station historian Hugh McGrattan will be on sale in the lifeboat shop and this really is a beautiful informative book for anybody to have in their collection.

So Come to Portrush this Bank Holiday Weekend and enjoy the atmosphere of Raft Race 2008!
