Class Day Of Wave Action

It took about 7 hours driving and the pain and tiredness tomorrow are probably going to be something else, but it sure was worth it!!

The 20 or so sailors who joined the DMG - Surfdock Surfari to Cross Strand were treated to a 7 solid hours of waves, wind and sun. Most people were on 4.7 - 5.2 sails, with nice head to logo high sets rolling in all day. Most unusual of all for wave sailing in Ireland it was 20 degrees and sunny all day.

It was great to get a days sailing with the crew, Ali B, Oisin, Colin & Jeff as well as all the others who made the trip from Dublin, Limerick, Galway and Sligo. Quote of the day has to go to Cross Strand first timer and young hot shot from Dublin Ryan O'Leary "it's like the best ever day at Dollymount times a hundred!"

Hopefully this is just the first of a few more nice Surfaris before the summers out, and now time for some sleep!!!!
