I have requested that the height barrier is opened on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to allow camper vans to park there.

There are also car parks on the sea front by the marina and the harbour. There is also on-street parking on Mary Street by the bowling and tennis clubs.

Are there any article or texts for circumnavigating Rathlin?
There might have been a TnaD article at some point?

The Marine Hotel in Ballycastle is full and there is a waiting list for accommodation there. Some people who have already booked are on the waiting list and all new bookings will be on the waiting list.

Alternative accommodation is being booked for those on the waiting list. Any difference in price will be refunded.

No new accommodation bookings will be taken after Thursday 22 September. Bookings for the symposium only will close on Monday 26 September.

Thank you to all who have paid for your symposium bookings.

If you have not paid for your booking by the end of the day, it may be cancelled.

There are still a small number of beds available for anyone still thinking of attending the symposium. When these are gone, no new accommodation bookings will be accepted.

The numbers for the symposium dinner need to be confirmed today also. I cannot guarantee any bookings for the symposium dinner after today.

To all Symposium attendees, the fundraising raffle for the RNLI is an essential part of the event. It would be very much appreciated if you could bring a prize, however small.

Also, it is intended to have a bring & buy sale so any excess or unused kit you may have, feel free to bring it along and find it a new home. Sell it, swap it or give it away, the choice is yours

Cheers
Chris
