Vikings assist at EDYC 50th Celebrations on 30 June 18
Approximately 70 boats with flags and bunting flying took part in a parade of sail at East Down Yacht Club, outside Killyleagh, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of founding of the club in 1968.
The parade was led by a Viking Ship, manned by Vikings in traditional clothes. The Vikings had set up camp for the weekend in the grounds of the club, demonstrating their skills and fighting ability with a mock battle.
The other on the water activities included kayak water polo, jousting over the water and jetty jumping for young people and adults who have not yet grown up! The fancy dress competition of either Vikings or Pirates, was judged by the Viking leader
