A few Words from 2011 North Coast Classic Winners,We at Alpine Lofts would like to thank Sean Diamond and his crew of the North Coast Classic,
for all their hard work during the 2011 season, culminating in a great final race for us from Rosscarbery, Cork, 265 Miles.
We were paid our winnings of £ 12,000 plus our Pools of £ 1190.00 on the evening of the race, just four hours after the birds arrival from Cork,
at the after race function held in the Lodge Hotel, Coleraine, continuing on from their usual practice of paying out pools & prize money within a week,
after each and every Hot - Spot race.
As a syndicate that competes in many One Loft Races each year, we can only compliment Sean and his team on the running of the North Coast Classic.
