Irish days at Akranes 2008

First weekend of July every year Irish weekend is celebrated at town called Akranes which is located across the pond from Reykjavík. As Wilks (on here) and crew are here to explore Iceland (for third time) and are here in Reykjavík over the weekend we invited them across the pond, and what is more appropriate transport method than RIB, so I borrowed Sveinki´s (on here) Humber previously known as Lemon Zest owned by Cypman (on here) and together with us was Ingo on his Ribeye and Sigurjon on his jetski.
As we got back to Reykjavík we went to Ţerney (one nearby islands) where Snarfari (boat club) has pontoon with BBQ and we had some grilled hot dogs after a great day out.

Thanks to all in Reykjavík!

After a few more boat trips and adventures, we are home! Many heartfelt thanks to Bogib and his friends in Iceland who made a great trip a special one for us. Only in Iceland have I experienced a welcome and hospitality like this. We look forward to being able to return the favour in the future. Thanks guys

Any Redbay Anoraks recognise the 11m, moored in her home berth?? Sorry, Virtual Prizes only...

Apologies to Bogib for hijacking his thread!

Sorry Andy - no virtual cigar. The boat was purchased new from Redbay by her current owners and is lying in a European Capital City. Not Reykjavík. C'mon c'mon! It's a dawdle...

Of course, but no virtual prize, 'cos I think it would be a Very Informed Guess!

Although I have never been there personally, I would say Torshavn capital of the Faroe Islands, my guess based on the red building which has turf on the roof for insulation which is still very common on the island.
