Current outlook for Saturday morning is winds F4 early, dropping to F3, showers until lunch time. Sunday is calm and dry until late afternoon.

Re: Clare Meet 20/21 August

Folks Unfortunately we must take Inis Meain off the cards for this weekend. At 6 to 10 feet, the sea swell is a little on the large side for considering an open crossing with a big group.
