Notes

Kircubbin in County Down has long been associated with yachting, with the nearby Strangford Lough a popular destination for leisure craft owners. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the village harbour, we here see a multitude of yachts sailing through the Lough. Note the race officials who govern the race through the raising of flags and the use of sound signals.
