Greetings,

My local spy tells me the buoy is now past Terryglass Harbour and on the rocks.

What's interesting is that that buoy was always moored in deep water. There is actually clear water most of the way in to the Gortmore shore east of that buoy. I think it's main purpose was to just steer you northwards.
So it will be interesting to see what effect it's absence will have!

You are correct Colin.

If WI don't sort by September, the Gortmore Bell Yacht Race will have to be postponed.

Shocking...
