To be able to continue sailing we have decided to bring Pride of Mann III over to Peel. This gives you an opportunity to sail in a different area. So fingers crossed the Autumn weather will be kind and we will be able to show you the beautiful Western coastline of our island. Look for available dates on the sailing programme.

It is with great sadness that we inform you that one of our long-standing members Hugh Evans passed away very sudden. Hugh will be remembered as a very kind and gentle person with a great sense of humour. Our thoughts are with his wife Eunice, his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.
