Red Arrows to provide a stunning send-off to Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race
The world-famous Red Arrows will take to the skies over the North West Coast of Ireland this Sunday to bring a spectacular close to the 2014 LegenDerry Maritime Festival.
Brought to the North West by a partnership between Donegal County Council, Limavady Borough Council and Derry City Council, the RAF Red Arrows will perform their thrilling flying display as the stunning send-off to the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race on Sunday 29th June 2014.
The distinctive red jets, which are this year celebrating their 50th display season, will execute their trademark formations, close-passes and dynamic loops and rolls at the mouth of the River Foyle between Greencastle in Co. Donegal and Magilligan/Binevenagh in Co. Londonderry.
Thousands of people are expected to descend upon the North West Coast to capture a clear vantage point of the Red Arrows’ stunning performance and celebrate the official Race Start of the Clipper 2013-14 Race at Greencastle, Co. Donegal.
The LegenDerry Maritime Festival, which continues throughout the weekend, has seen tens of thousands of visitors flock to the City’s quayside and marina, which has resembled a scene from Monte Carlo or Nice, with the Clipper Yachts moored alongside a race village featuring music, food & drink and family entertainment, as well as plenty of action on the water all week long.
