A short Cruise on the River Shannon, Athlone to Lough Ree

We untied the boat from its moorings in Athlone Town Marina and headed up river towards Lough Ree. There was a stiff breeze coming from the north east and not only did this make it quite cold but it stirred up the lake quite a bit. We turned at the Lough Ree Yacht club because the lake would have been quite rough and Marion is not a fan of big waves!

There were plenty row boats out from Athlone Rowing Club on a practice or a training session. They look very graceful in the water but but you have to pass them very slowly so that teh wash doesn’t swamp them.
The boat itself went perfectly thus showing that she has survived the winter without any issues, least not any issues that we have discovered yet.

Check out our new shop at www.driftwood.tv/shop where you get your hands on our book ‘Driftwood from the Shannon to the Marne’ the humorous account of or first ever venture into the sea, and on to the French inland waterways.
