Boat trip on a fine day turned into an ordeal

Lough Ree

Lough Ree

Have your say

Some 15 years ago a group of friends and I decided to take a cruiser out on Lough Ree – with almost fatal consequences.

We started in Athlone and headed north along the Shannon in the vessel and decided to head into the lough and veer east for the shelter of a bay at Coosan point.

The weather was fine and sunny and the girls were sunbathing on the bow when things started to change.
