Morning folks. Pretty dull and overcast this morning. Still its a lot warmer than what we had last week! Fairly mixed bag for the next few days with some rain and showers. Next week there is rumors of some wind coming our way. We’ll keep an eye on that and make sure the boats are ok. Parish notice from the Shotley Point Yacht club as follows for this weekend:
