PostSubject: Rosslare Small Boat Festival 2012   September 26th 2012, 12:41

On behalf of myself, committee members and all of the competitors of the Rosslare Small Boats Festival, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for all of your support and assistance in making it possible for this years’ event to take place.

As you are aware, due to the failure of Self Catering Ireland, the competition was on the brink of collapse, as I had already paid that company for the accommodation for 85 competitors prior to its demise, but thanks to the support and generosity of organisations such as yourselves, the accommodation was secured and it did take place, and with great success.

This year saw a slight fall in numbers, mainly due to the current economic climate, which, hopefully will ease slightly in the near future, but saying that, and in these hard times, 85 competitors, 77 of whom were from England, is a great turnout. The enthusiasm shown by these people bears witness to the popularity of this event, which will be in its’ 28th year next year. Planning is already taking place for that event.

Having attended the Festival for over 20 years, and organised it for the last 12 years, I have decided that this year will be my last. Hopefully, I shall still be attending in the future, as it has become a way of life to me. I have left the Festival in the very capable hands of John Belger, and old friend, who has also been attending the Festival for a similar amount of time as me.

Once more, I thank you most sincerely for your support.

Your welcome Phil, plenty of our members past and present have enjoyed the festival so it was only right that we as a club should help out when things went a bit . I would like to thank you on behalf of my dad for all the hard work you have put in organising the event. I know he has enjoyed it over the years and hopefully will continue to do so.
