CHIARLI, JESTER, DIGNITY'S IRISH - JAUNT
Three power boats powering across the Irish Sea 'Cruising in Company'.
When the three were going across others were coming home and passing each other communicating over the VHF in the middle of the Irish Sea. Some homeward bound whilst others starting their cruise. On that day the sea was like silk and the Power Boats powered to their destination whilst the Sailing Boats returning home did not have wind to sail. Can't please everybody. The 'Trader' " Northwestern" made its way individually to celebrate the Bank Holiday, a maiden voyage for the new owners. It is amazing how many of us share the Irish Sea at the same time.
Malahide, a destination not to forget, although navigation has to be pretty good as this is an Estuary, with a bank across. This did not stop the three power musketeers, and why should it. They visited the usual eateries,or Guiness providers, and had good weather to eat outdoors in the sunshine. BBQ on the bathing platform with chef John 'Chiarli' was a must.
A noticable feature in Malahide Estuary is the old dredger.
Greystones, yet again another favourite. Great voyage.
