Seafly 246

Sandpiper on Strangford Lough in August 2019

Sandpiper (Seafly 246) is now sailing and racing on Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland, though mostly against GP14,s and Wayfarers. I managed to get the boat about 3 years ago from one of the folks in Newcastle Sailing Club, and had it back on the water last year. I think another Seafly from Newcastle will also be at our club soon (East Down Yacht Club). Should be good to have them racing against each other again…. When the lockdown lifts !!!
