Wizard, DUBLIN, St. Stephen's Day

Had the pleasure of a Dublin Blast aboard Gavin and Tim's Redbay 'Wizard' on St. Stephen's Day (Boxing Day here).

Many thanks Lisa, Gav and Tim

Here's us suiting and booting in Dun Laoghaire (1)

'I remember Dublin City....'

Two more much loved 'waypoints' in Dublin geography & history


1) The lighthouse at Poolbeg

2) The Ha'penny Bridge

Dublin or 'Dubh Linn' is derived from 'Black Pool'. The alternative name is Baile Atha Cliath which has to do with a settlement fording the river Liffey.

Pootling under O'Connell's Bridge (as far as we can remember ). Amazing the big wash on a Redbay at 4 knots
