Just wanted to share some pics with you guys to show that even in the west of Ireland, we do use our boats and often take part in cruise in companies. OK, so the weather wasn't quite the med, but we still all had fun.

Last weekend (mid Sept), we had our last official cruise-in-company (although we'll keep cruising until the weather stops us). This year, there was a twist! When all the boats arrived at their final destination, a surprise Christmas Dinner was organised, to the surprise of all the guests. Santa (yours truly) even made an appearance, with gifts for all participants (adults & children).

Hope you enjoy :)

On arrival, the children were looking at us like we were crazy as we produced a Christmas tree from our boat

Hi N,

Looks like a lot of fun was had, well done.

Looking at the boats on the raft, the types and sizes of craft look amazingly similar to those typically seen around here. Our boating scenes appear quite similar (minus the christmas tree :) ).

Yes, Dustywings - that is a Ranger, but she's longer than 36 ft.
I have a great photograph of her which I will post when I locate it.
She's a very fast cruiser.
