A beautiful series of bespoke trophies designed by sculptor Paddy McCormack (www.paddymccormack.com) will be awarded for the Ilen Challenge at this year’s Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival. The striking design features the bull and pins of a currach. The Ilen challenge is an 8 mile race (or leisurely trip for some!) from Skibbereen to Baltimore Harbour for wooden rowing boats including naomhogs, racing curraghs and gandalows.
Wow, lovely mugs. Come along to the festival to get one of these!
Check out the 2015 Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival Poster, created by Con Ryan and Garry McMahon of Copper Reed Studio. Our festival posters have become collectors’ items! Colourful and full of life – just like the Festival…
The T-shirt helped me catch this big eye tuna in Los Cristianos, Tenerife. Only a few weeks til the 2015 Festival. Hope you’re getting those boats ready.
A beautiful winter day on the water on exercise with Baltimore Lifeboat. Soon time to start painting those boats for the start of the Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival on May 22nd.
Great excitement at the pilot transfer area.
