Exciting place, Dun Laoghaire. Last time we put in there it was following a 50-knot rainsquall. We rescued a man and his two children
who'd been out fishing
in a rowboat. They were about 5 miles offshore
and getting blown towards Liverpool despite the man's frantic efforts at the oars. The RDYC was not pleased to have a visiting American yacht depositing wet non-members on its docks, so we went to Howth the next day. Much calmer, if you can put up with the compass
swinging all over because of the chains lining the harbor.
