Happy Halloween

Given the forecast it had to be good.

Only two braved the conditions. Dublin Bay, Daalkey Sound and The Mugglins were lunatic. Followed SAR Helcopter South almost to Bray Head but had to give up as they were faster in the conditions. The Mugglins in particular were wild with a vertical wave pattern.

Conditions were too bad for photographs.

Approx 12.30 we went into city centre for breakfast. Sun shone for a while. Got a chance for some snaps.

Happy Halloween.

we were going in a circle , so really our COG was under 4 knots .......
I think the 4 knot limit could be higher , as the ships in the harbour travel faster than that.
