23rd July 2022, From Burtonport Pier & around the surrounding islands

This year the 2nd annual Float For Hope Boat Run will take place on Sat 23rd July. All boats welcome on the day! It will be a great flotilla again this year, when we will take to the seas from Burtonport Pier around the Islands of Arranmore and surrounding islands. (There will be no flotilla unfortunately to Tory Island this year).

All the details will be posted soon on the Facebook Page along with details of the Water Safety demonstrations on the day with Water Safety Ireland, Sheephaven Aqua Club, Carickfinn Watersports and more.

We are also delighted to have the Donegal Coastguard and crew on board and all the Ferries (Arranmore Red & Blue Ferry) will have places available for a donation.

It is advised to book early. We are so looking forward to seeing you all for another year! And we would appreciate a wee share just to spread the word for another magical Day in West Donegal.

This year we will be raising awareness on all aspects of Water Safety for all ages. And all the fundraising efforts this year will go to “The Dungloe Hospital”. We have set up an idonate page - link below. Thank you for your support and for the generous donations so far.
