The Summer was not over for MYC sailors on Sunday, as they enjoyed the experience of sailing a Tall Ship with their departure from Poolbeg Yacht Club, with ideal Westerly winds.
The crew of 11 (9 cadets and 2 parents) discovered the joy of sweating at the masts, working heavy canvas sails and managing the halyards and sheets – a whole new dimension to sailing! There was no opportunity to avail of rest on the 16 bunks on board, despite the temptation!
The Brian Boru had travelled from Waterford Saturday evening to make up for the trip planned earlier in the year. And yes it was worth the wait!
Special thanks to Sindy Offer, Sail Training Ireland for arranging the trip.
