On Wednesday the fire pump was dragged from the boat shed, positioned at the bottom of the boat shed slipway and then put into use washing the mud from Shamrock's dock and slipway. This also had the bonus of supplying entertainment for the visitors.
The slipway needs to be cleared of mud on a regular basis and this week was chosen as it will be needed during this weekend's (29th & 30th June) planned 'wet wet weekend' events.
Nancy Belle was also checked over in preparation for her role as safety boat for the 'splash and dash'.

Wet wet weekend features all sorts of water-based activities including a ‘splash and dash’ swimming and running race, a best dressed pirate competition, model boat demonstrations, canoe taster sessions and more.
