Shamrock Diary Dates 2014

Hot off the press here are Shamrock's planned event dates for 2014.

Trips to Royal William Yard Plymouth.

Friday 2nd  to Monday 5th May.
Friday 4th  to Monday 7th July.
Friday 1st  to Monday 4th August.
Friday 5th  to Monday 8th September.

Trip to Saltash sailing regatta.

Friday 20th  to Monday 23rd June.

The normal format for all weekend trips is to depart from Cotehele Quay on the rising tide once there is sufficient water to float her out of the dock. The return trips departures will be timed to give Shamrock sufficient time to arrive back at Cotehele Quay on or before the high tide. Times will be published here when they are known.

The Weather Effect

As Shamrock is the last of the Tamar sailing barges and is irreplaceable a bad weekend weather forecast can result in any trip being cancelled at short notice.

40 Years at Cotehele

The 22nd July 2014 is the 40th anniversary of Shamrock arriving at Cotehele for the start of her restoration and a day of celebration is in the planning stage for Saturday 26th July. This will include activities on the Shamrock, quay and possible boat shed.
