To have a friend in my life like you doesn't mean sailing on a boat without any storms. Rather it means having a boat that can sail in every storm. - Written in 2005 by Babbu Pandu, India

After a great weekend in Riversdale, Sunday saw the fleet moving out in small groups down to Ballyconnel. What a fantastic resource this SEW is, and with a small following flow and a few very tight bends the trip was quick and interesting. The trees to the surface and the wildlife are just amazing. By Wednesday Ballyconnel had a nice HBA fleet. Some of us then moved to Aghalane jetty and this has the full suite of facilities, quiet and just what we needed. Belturbet filled up quickly after that and the only sad part is to see the Emerald Star base closed, but we understand a buyer has been found to keep it going as a marina. The refurbished train station was the afternoons attraction on Saturday with guided tours given on this very historic site. The pubs were the main focus that evening and nice to see a new generation of guitarists starting up. On sunday the trek to Lough Erne Yacht Club started and the fleet split up staying at various places such as Naan Island, Ardhowen Theatre and the Forum in Enniskillen. This is a very long trip, best taken in stages, but the welcome in LEYC made it all worth while. What a beautiful location.
