Round Ireland 2013 arriving into Cork
I decided to go out and greet these guys to give them a little encouragement after the battering they took in recent days.
Despite a really long run from Dingle, conditions had been the best in a while so lots of happy faces although there were a few who were visibly done in for the day!
The fuelling team were outstanding and everyone queued patiently knowing their turn would come soon.
There are some good stories to be told!
Sorry some pix are a bit blurred - it wasn't the brightest day and there was a lot of joggle plus compressing them to fit on here killed some details but they'll give you a sense of the day.

Look at the liitle boys face - you know he feels the sense of adventure from all the boats.
"don't be getting no crumbs on the new paintwork - or else!"
Freshly sharpened prop almost gets stuck in!!!
The fishing rods? as if there was time...!
They really were still on speaking terms
