Rathlin Sound Maritime Festival 2017
ATYLA by James M Pilgrim
The towns of Rathlin and Ballycastle come together to celebrate Ratlin Sound Maritime Festival 2017, an event that celebrates the maritime heritage of Northern Ireland. There’ll be regattas across the Ratlin Sound throughout the event and a number of tall ships in attendance, as has been the case in previous years.
If you’re taking the family there’ll be more than enough on offer with everything from water activities to craft markets, cultural talks, scenic walks, exhibitions, competitions and more.
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
