LN896 04/06/2016 After weeks of toiling away at sea, well probably not even forty eight hours away from the Scilly isles, our eyes were set upon the entrance of the bay, with crew aloft as well as below, preparing the ship for the glaring eyes of the public and the snap and clap of camera’s. With the crew in high spirits (most likely because of the thought of a three course meal, and the promise of the local   beverage) we sailed into Dublin to take our place among the tall ships.

We were the biggest and we fell the best, as we feasted on prawn Marie Rose, slow cooked lamb and strawberry cheese cake before setting off to sample the delights of Dublin.
