Volunteers are needed to help with this Bag Pack in Shoprite, Peel on Saturday 15 December.
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity.
Please contact Adrienne on 833497 or mobile 466514 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing or talking to customers and give information about SFTD.
Many thanks to Shoprite for letting us use their store.
The first photo was not very difficult for most of you.
Belfast Lough is a very popular destination, about 12 hours sailing from Douglas. You have the choice of three Marinas, Bangor, Carrickfergus or Abercorn Basin (see photo):
All three Marinas have many interests ashore: In Belfast there is the Titanic museum which is within walking distance of the Abercorn Marina as is the City Centre.
Bangor and Carrickfergus offer great shore facilities; Carrickferus also offer FREE berthing and easy shopping! And last but not least has a 12 century Norman Castle.
Keep an eye out for our next destination!
