Heading for Galway? or the Cliffs of Moher perhaps.17/09/2010 at 12:39 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

After 4 days without a control system Pinta is now near the entrance to Galway bay and about 30 nautical miles off the Cliffs of Moher (the biggest cliffs in Ireland and one of its biggest tourist attractions). If the current course continues then Pinta could sail straight into the cliffs which would be very spectacular for all the tourists, not so good for us. However it would be nice if she went a bit further south and ended up on the nice sandy beach in Lahnich (wishful thinking I know) or slightly further north and inside the relatively sheltered waters of Galway bay where a rescue would be quite easy.
