IDRA 14/166 Update #10

IDRA 14/166 Update #10

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas a boat!

 

What better way than to start this update than with a picture of 14/166, planks and sheerstrakes in place! We put the sheerstrakes on in late October/early November, and the width from sheerstrake to sheerstrake is looking good for the measurements (within 5 feet). The sheerstrake, cut from a Kaya Mahogany board has been spliced at station 3 – Donal suggested a semi-circular splice which enabled us to twist and land the sheerstrake from station 3 back to the transom. Donal cut the joint in the Kaya Mahogany with a coping saw and very neat it is too. The joint is reinforced behind which will be hidden under the deck.

Santa Series - Exciting Sailing in Clontarf

Santa Series - Exciting Sailing in Clontarf

December came in with a bang – with a forecast for gale force winds and very cold weather. Many felt that racing was looking unlikely and did not turn up.   On arrival we were greeted with the sight of white horses galore and a biting westerly wind. Dublin Port was giving the wind speed as 18/25 Kts. There were 10 boats prepared to sail. Due to the weather conditions the race for Toppers/Pico’s was cancelled. It was decided to wait 30 mins and then Gary went out in his Laser as a “tester”. He reported that conditions were borderline. Given the relatively safe wind direction and the fact that Jessie & Catherine had volunteered to man a second rescue boat we decided to go for it. The boats launched successfully after some nearly blowing over in the process.!! Thanks to all who helped out with the launching – it’s great to see such spirit in the Club.   More...

John Miller RIP

It was with great sadness that I learned earlier today of the passing away of John Miller - the much loved elder statesman of the IDRA 14's John had a wonderfully long sailing sailing life and also pursued the shore activities with equal gusto.

 

Many memorable parties were hosted by him and Barbara in his delightful house on Highfield Road. John was a stalwart of the IDRA 14 Class from the late 1950's. His sailing career began in CY&BC in Clontarf and he purchased 14/24 with his late wife Barbara as crew. Later he purchased "Sheldrake" 14/36 and moved his sailing base southside to the RstGYC.

Christmas Day Swim 2014

Christmas Day Swim 2014

The Annual Christmas Swim in aid of the RNLI takes place on Christmas Day 2014 at 12.30 sharp.

 

This swim was initiated in 1975 by my dad, Johnny Wilson, as a method of raising money for the Lifeboats and was originally called “Around the punt for pound” and swimmers had a target to collect twenty pounds. In advance of the first swim, some swimmers actually starting training in October on the Bull Wall (not swimming but running!)
