Cruising Photo Quiz

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!

A sad loss

It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing away of Phillip Ashley Hedges, one of our long time members. Ashley passed away piece fully at Noble’s Hospital 17 November.

Our thoughts are with his daughters Lara and Sasha, family and friends.


This is the start of the SFTD cruising photo quiz. Every two weeks we will show a picture of one of the destinations we sailed to during recent years.

Over time we have been to some fantastic destinations and we would like to challenge you to guess where these photos were taken. If you click on the photo it will enlarge.

Do you know the answer, send an email to secretary@manx.net or send a message via the SftD Facebook page www.facebook.com/SailingForTheDisabledIsleOfMan
