Round Ireland Powerboat and RIB Challenge 2013
Team Baby Blue suffered lost bolts on engine mounts on the run to Fenit. They have decided to trail to Crosshaven tonight with Team Linley Swans trailer, with the plan of running with Hot Lemon and Skerryvore onto Kilmore Quay, now outside the event.

Alas, the delights of Dingle had waned and with a heavy heart and a light wallet - the crew of Skerryvore decided that they must answer the call of Crosshaven. So as the remaining Challenge craft rested in Dingle while the flock of Swans caught up by trailer, the Redbay Stormforce 950 and Team Suzuki joined Hot Lemon and a local 11m Redbay for a run around the coast. All well and no doubt getting turfed out of another pub for singing badly again...

Sic 'em Skerryvore!

Collective noun is never a flock! A bank, a bevy or (in flight) a wedge perhaps. Although personally I prefer a "Lamentation of Swans"!

After he slagged me off for my little A on america the other day I wanna agree just to make a point but actually the meaning came across just fine so why the need to complain? It certainly wouldn't have made sense to my lower accadmic achieving head to have used lamentation of swans...

So what does it matter and stop interupting the stories from Ireland.

It was a bit of banter between friends. So lighten up it does not detract from the content of the thread in anyway!

I'm fairly sure these ones were flockers...

LinleySwan's FB page says they are goging from dingle to Kilmore tommorrow. Hidden in a comment on the post about branding.

Just discovered another blog:
News List | Suzuki GB Marine

My one criticism of this event is that for people from the outside tryign to follow its all a bit disjointed. Considering some boats are sponsored I'm surprised the sponsors didn't want more press coverage (although maybe press coverage of 27 boats being wittled down to half of that is a bad thing - especially as it seems to be the big boys who've struggled the most!)
