Looked like swell was building and wind picking up but guess what, neither was. This was to be our last sail in Ireland on our Guy Cribb course before decamping to somewhere with wind and waves....

Windy, sunny day but little in the way of swell. But nice to be in a summer wetsuit again.
Had a play in what waves there were before an upwind blast before lunch.
Lunch was followed by a downwind blast to find a little more swell in the river mouth.
Some of us timed our return upwind to perfection hitting the big gusts and making good time. However the wind then dropped so the stragglers had quite a wobble upwind to get back.
Rounded off with beers on the beach in the sunset, mustn't grumble...
