A very sad few days...our good friend, Fintan, lost his life whilst out windsurfing at Banna strand this Saturday. He was eventually found by his long time friend, Graham, who managed to sum up what went on that day. Anyone who knew Fintan would confirm that he was one of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet, an avid and accomplished windsurfer, and a loving father and husband - our hearts go out to Catriona, Laura and all the rest of his family. It was always a pleasure to see him at the beach, and his infectious enthusiasm added to the enjoyment of a session on the water. He will be greatly missed....
I have to say well done to Colin, Hannes, Will and Graham, and all the rescue services and locals who joined in the search - a tough job.
