Belfast

Hey Guys,

So this is a bit of a stretch, but I am from the States and have no clue what the boating in Northern Ireland is like. So I am curious, is there any? Specifically, near Belfast? Season? Any help would be appreciated as I may find myself there... Thanks again.

Yep - there's plenty of paddling

Glemarm is pretty close and quite good.

As for a season its whenever it rains - which could be anytime.

Ho ho, Sacramento to Belfast..this is going to be an interesting cultural adventure. I recommend geting started on your heavy drinking training ASAP.

Ian. I have been training for the cherry creek race all summer (drinking...not boating). So I am prepped. And the move is just a theoretical (don't tell Diane!).

Thanks for info.

I your looking for anymore info feel free to email paddler_ni@yahoo.co.uk, I've been paddling here for over 20 years so would say I know the area pretty well (just dont get to excited) we have some amazing steep creeks when running and world class surf so usually something to keep you amused.
