Round Britain 2019 – Portpatrick to Bangor

Round Britain 2019 – Portpatrick to Bangor

Bright and early, our crews headed out under blue skies into the open water of the Irish sea, and had good wind to help them on their way. As our crews had got to know each other the day before, they were all eager to help each other in their endeavour to haul their vessels through the waves and head for the third country we are visiting on this trip. Located just outside the Northern Irish capital, Belfast, Bangor is a seaside town on the southern side of Belfast Lough, and has plenty to offer.

…and so are those on Ashanti

The splendid sight of the town of Bangor proved a welcome sight after an exhilarating sail across the sea, and the view of the Ferris Wheel illuminated against the night sky invokes many memories of childhood, even in some of our most hardened sailors!

A big wheel always looks fun at night

All of those on board are helping us to raise much needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and, along with our sponsors, are all working hard to make sure the work that they do to help some of the most vulnerable people in the UK.
