Radio Caroline North was anchored in Ramsey Bay. The ship was tendered from Ramsey harbour and, on Sunday morning, the convention delegates paid a visit.

A pint of Bushy's ‘Golden Oldie’ being pulled in The Ellan Vannin. Back in the sixties the pub was known as The Commercial Hotel. Crew-members would often stay here overnight on their way to or from the ship. The beer was originally brewed to celebrate Caroline's fortieth anniversary. A new batch was brewed to mark the convention. More details here.

Manx Giant


As well as organising the Caroline North exhibition and Convention, Andy Wint wrote a book. Manx Giant: From The Wonderful Isle Of Man tells the full story of Radio Caroline North. It includes details of all the broadcasters who made the station such a success and contains some wonderful, previously unpublished, photographs, including many from the exhibition. Although now out of print, copies (either new or second-hand) are sometimes available from Amazon.
