  • Title: Dinah
    Descriptive info: .. Home.. Where is Dinah?.. Press Media.. Suppliers.. What s in a Name.. Links.. Dinah Sails into Galway Docks.. 12 July 2012.. Posted in.. General.. |.. Comments Off.. The Round Rockall Race 2012.. Rockall is a small rock, measuring just 25 x 31 meters and 21 meters high.. It is located some 423kn northwest of Tory Island.. Ownership of the island is disputed among Ireland, Great Britain, Iceland, and Denmark.. The first of Dinah s big races this year is the.. Round Rockall Race.. , from Galway, around Rockall, and back to Galway again.. The race was organised by Larry Hynes and Aodhan Fitzgerald from Galway Bay Sailing Club.. Unusually, the race was to have a solo class, so Barry saw it as a good opportunity to get back out in North Atlantic waters solo for the first time since the OSTAR a few years ago.. The race started on a really nice Sunday evening with 17knts of breeze from the west creating a true beat in flat water all the way out of Galway Bay, before turning North to head straight for Rockall.. The photo below shows Dinah just after the start, powering upwind.. Two and a half days later, Barry successfully rounded Rockall, and at that point in time the predicted corrected times showed Barry two hours ahead of his nearest rival, who was a 54ft carbon fibre racing boat from Germany called Bank Von Bremen (BVB), crewed by nine experienced offshore sailors.. On the way back south again the breeze died to nothing for several hours, while BVB was still making good progress towards Galway, being further south on the racecourse.. Sure enough, the Malin Head checkin showed Dinah had lost 4hrs, and was now well  ...   that the whole event was a huge success.. Thanks a million to all involved!.. Northabout Dublin to Galway.. At the beginning of June we brought Dinah around from Dun Laoghaire to Galway to get her ready for the.. later in the month.. Barry and Tom did the delivery double handed over a long weekend.. They went northabout to get better weather and to see some of the fantastic scenery along the shoreline.. Leaving the east coast early on Saturday morning we took advantage of the end of a storm to make great distance on the first day.. By Monday we had run out of breeze and ended up motoring past Tory Island and Bloody Foreland.. But for the last 80nm or so a beautiful 14knt sea breeze delivered us to Galway just before the lock gates shut.. A quick snooze before heading back to Dublin on the train, and Dinah was safely tucked up on the docks in Galway ready for her next adventure.. Fastnet Race 2011.. 22 May 2012.. Previous Entries..

Fare thee well, my lovely.. Dinah.. ,.. a thousand times adieu.. We are bound away from the Holy Ground.. and the girls we love so true.. We ll sail the salt seas over.. and we ll return once more,.. And still I live in hope to see.. the Holy Ground once more.. Chorus:.. You re  ...   raging.. and we are far from shore;.. The poor old ship she s sinking fast.. and the riggings they are tore.. The night is dark and dreary,.. we can scarcely see the moon,.. But still I live in hope to see.. It s now the storm is over.. and we are safe on shore.. We ll drink a toast to the Holy Ground.. and the girls that we adore.. We ll drink strong ale and porter.. and we ll make the taproom roar,.. And when our money is all spent.. we ll go to sea once more.. Originally recorded by The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem in 1962 on their album The Boys Won t Leave the Girls Alone.. Performances available on YouTube:.. November 1967 studio.. The High Kings have a.. version.. The Dubliners have a.. (nice photos of Cobh) and another.. here..
