    just heard at the weekend that a pupeter lost its mast on the same night with a kite up. Went just above the 1st spreader. Apparently a 10 week wait for a new spar

    Bit of fun sail from howth to greystones at the weekend. Some Moth racing going on before we headed off.

    Coming towards sunset after the NYC regatta on Saturday evening - summer solstice - perfect end to a great day.

    (unfortunately no on-the-water shots - we were too busy racing :D)

    While you young things were madly chasing each other around a few cans in Dublin Bay, down here in Christendom the place was eerily quiet, not a yacht in sight, all on my lonesome. Very little wind so I set my spinnaker to get home and for an aged bit of unidentifiable fabric it worked well. (Equally aged – almost - I worked well too but was ‘oiled’ by a nice G&T. No ice, but I had fresh lime. Beats racing any day!) :p:)

    Think you're trying to link us to your photo in google+... Is there a share button that you can get a share by email link from?

    I am indeed. Have no clue how to work Google+ properly.

    Tried another link just there, but it linked to my whole Google+ profile which I've no particular desire to share with the world.....

    I managed to put the sunset picture up last night, why won't this work :confused::mad:

    ETA - FFS, I give up - got a miniature version of it up - see above. It's not even that funny any more!

    I have not seen it for a while. The 'zone of embarrassment' always reminds me of my crewing days - we once raced with a rather tetchy skipper who always pinched when on the wind, so when he sailed too close one of us would distract him momentarily while the other would say 'Windshift' - it invariably worked!

    Taken today at work instructing. I wish I'd gotten one of the nicer sunny weather earlier in the week, but I'm sure there'll be more chances. Poolbeg and Dublin City in the background, with plenty of rain which pretty quickly hit us.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,762 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    First time up the Liffey at the weekend. Interesting trip up and a different view on the city and the workings of the port. Eerie kind of feeling going by the chimneys and the pigeon house. Industrial waste land and lots of decay. Had a great view Sunday morning of a cruise ship doing a 3 point turn on front of Poolbeg marina.

    The last photo is an odd one. Was yacht and 3 or 4 small speed/fishing boats sitting up just behind the esb station. All looked abandoned but from being on Google maps access to the site they are in looks difficult. Would be interested to hear if anyone knows what the yacht is or why its there

    I think that boat has been up there for years, I seem to remember it (or something very similar) when I spent a bit of time in and out of Dublin port over a decade ago.

    I'm in Poolbeg that long and it's been there as long as I can remember.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,762 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    Thanks just sqd to seea boat being left to rot especially if its an old ior tonner that can be restored to race again

    Update: Bit of searching on sailing anarchy has thrown up 2 bits of info on that boat from 2 different posters which seem to match up. The design class & a previous owner. Aparently been there since mid 90s


  • Registered Users Posts: 947 ✭✭✭ Conchir


    The weather's been a bit nicer at work. I messed up the panorama but I still think it's a nice photo.

    Howth Head seemed to protect us from the worst of the fog the past few days, it just sat off us most of the time.

    We, on the other hand, had ALL the fog! Two whole days of it.

    This is the view from the committee boat for the J109/Ruffian championships on Friday. We never once saw any of our marks :eek: How the boats found them (although some apparenetly didn't!) was beyond us. Pea soup the whole day, until just as we were lifting the last finish mark - boom - it lifted and the sun came out :D

    (See below - many thanks to Miss No Stars!)

    You're not the jetskier who managed to get yourself stuck on Ireland's Eye with 3 of you on the jetski are you?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,171 ✭✭✭ Rob2593


    Nice to know I'm famous haha. Yep that was myself. Jetski sucked up loads of weeds and wouldn't start so had to get the knights in shining armor aka RNLI to rescue us :p

    How'd you know?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,957 miss no stars


    Had a hunch.

    Looks like a 2 seater? Were there really 3 of you on it?

    Nope, I had one lad on Ireland's Eye beach and took turns between to two, hence how the weeds got caught in the impellor!
