A MOVE by Coleraine Yacht Club to Portrush could pave the way for a brand new restaurant overlooking the River Bann.

With the sport now a year-round affair, members are seeking to access to the open ocean without having to negotiate the treacherous Bar Mouth.

And having reached agreement to share Portrush Yacht Club's facilities, subject to members' approval they are now seeking permission from Causeway Coast and Glens Council to sub-let their council-owned clubhouse at Cloonavin.

The club says it has already lined up a restaurateur as the new tenant.
