Cruinniú Bádóirí Acla | Achill Yawl Sailing Festival

CRUINNIÚ BÁDÓIRÍ ACLA '10 | ACHILL YAWL SAILING FESTIVAL '10:

Tá Cumann Bádóirí Acla ag iarraidh cultúir agus traidisiúin seoltóireachta an yawl a chosaint agus a leanú amach. Beidh béim dhá chur ar labhairt na Gaeilge insna himeachtaí seo. Le cúpla bliain anuas tá uimhir na mbád árdaí ó 3 go 13. 'Sé an cuspóir atá againn ná cur leis an bhfás iontach seo. Tuigeann Cumann Bádóirí Acla an tábhacht atá leis an chultúr agus an teanga a chaomhnú. Beidh imeachtaí na Féile dhá reáchtáil tré mheán na Gaeilge. Baineann na sluaite a bhíonn i láthair ag na rásaí an sásamh as an spórt ársa seo, as an scil iontach a bhaineann le gabháil na Yawlta agus an choimhlint ghéar a bhíonn ann le ceann scríbe a bhaint amach.

The Achill Yawl Festival is an annual series of races involving traditional Achill yawl sailing boats. The races take place at vairous locations along Achill Sound, the body of Atlantic water that connects Clew Bay with Blacksod Bay on the west coast of the County. The Achill Yawl is a traditional wooden sailing boat with a solid hull and a single mast. In recent years, partly due to the success of Cruinniú Bádóirí Acla, there has been a revival in this traditional vessel. A dedicated workshop has even been established at Mulranny to build new yawls, and the first craft of this enterprise was sold in 2003 to a customer in Boston, USA.
