Well done tonyt looks a good plan.
I called into the Marina office on Tuesday. Are you sure they have the booking? She looked up the book and could not see the flotilla booked in. Was quoting me 19 euro a day/night.

Hi Tony,

"The 6th of July sounds fine with us. I can’t promise unequivocally, but may be able to get you closer to the shore if that would suit this time? I won’t know definitively until closer to the date".

We look forward to welcoming you guys over again.

Kind regards,
Paal

Yep probably best to give them a call. She certainly looked up the book in front of me for that weekend. Unless they have two books .... ??

Up the river

When is the appetite ? Would suggest after registration in the marina office, same as last year.
If you remember we lost quite a few to the local watering hole

Times and tides wise... yea we were able to get quite far up, getting the tides perfect about two hours after falling tide. Issue being that if we are to go, then really, we will probably have to go regardless of tides, to suit the flotialla time and make it up as far as possible.

Generally, most boats should be ok up to O Connell bridge (city centre)
getting further up, as you can see, the bridges get lower, the channel narrows and gets a little sportier, things need timed much tighter to get minimum clearance, as photos show.

But regardless of tides, I'd suggest a cruise as was done last year.
On a good day, its a nice little run, and total distance from O Connell bridge to DL Marina is only 7NM so not a huge time / gas investment.

We have a new bridge under construction too - it was just a set of piles last year ( but fun with a flow of water behind you and a narrow channel ) but is getting there now.

If I get a chance I will try and eyeball it to see what a passage might be like before the day. Even if it's a blocker the trip even up that far is well worth it.
