Broadmeadows Estuary - Business as Usual...

A Chairde,

This is just a quick update to let you know that it is business as usual for our Windsurfing and Dinghy Sailing activities on the Broadmeadows Estuary.

Following the collapse of the railway bridge and a request from the Irish Coastguard we took the decision to suspend activities last weekend while the extent of the problem was investigated. We are now satisfied that the bridge poses no additional risk to our activities so courses and hire are available again as normal.

On another note, we have a couple of places available on a National PWC Certificate (Jetski) course this weekend and our list of end of season windsurfing equipment for sale is now available.

Míle buíochas,
Córa & Dave Garvey
