The first autumn storm on Sunday and Monday, with Southerly winds of 25 knots gusting to 35 knots has disrupted moored boats and moorings within the lough.
The featured image is of boats off Killyleagh – below these pics show EDYC and KYC on Monday afternoon 12/9/16.
Members should take the next safe opportunity which presents to check all their property, focus on strops and bow rollers, dodgers and sail covers, plus sails.
A range of damage and mooring movement has been observed, however considerable good fortune has been experiences by a handful of boats, assisted by owners and volunteers.
We understand all those significantly affected have been contacted, however despite much work (Tue evening) many dodgers and sail covers etc continue to need securing.
