More Sad loss of life.....

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...cket-1.3149298

Looks like 2 guys out in a small RIB/SIB off the west coast of Ireland on Saturday, the weather changed and they got caught out, it is very sad. We have a house down the coast in County Clare and much has been done to educate the local Polish community about the differences between the Baltic and the Atlantic (there were several cases of guys being washed off rocks by freak waves, but anyone who knows the coast, knows that freak waves occur surprisingly often and they often didn't account for tide changes or check tides when going out fishing on boats or just off the rocks. Its working in County Clare or starting too anyway (I was there 2 weeks ago and chatting to some Polish lads), but sadly the message doesn't always get through. Terribly sad.
