RV Celtic Mist launched back on the water

16th Jul 2012

Following an extensive refit, the new IWDG cetacean research vessel Celtic Mist was launched this weekend at Kilrush Creek Marina.

There is still considerable work to be done, with the masts and rigging to be inspected and replaced where neccessary and painting, sanding, varnishing and more painting to be completed. Internally there is still plumbing, electrics and more painting and sanding to be completed but we are making rapid progress.

The official launch will be on Sunday 12 August at 2pm at Kilrush Creek Marina, Co Clare so put this date in your diary now !!
