Perfect weather today for the Annual NSYS Treasure Hunt and BBQ, with thanks to our kind sponsors shown below.

Seven boats made it out on the water this year - Free Spirit, Kestrel II, Moonraker, Sail Away II, Sanderling, Skybird, Suaimhneas and the crew from Explorer.

All were tested by the cryptic clues, especially the lamp post https://van.physics.illinois.edu/QA/listing.php?id=1235

Thanks to the organisers and everyone who turned out. Looking forward to our next event on 21st Oct in Cork City.
