From the lovely sunny weather we have now returned to Autumn for a day or two. Yesterday was very windy so went for a sail at Dumps, and when the wind switched a bit onshore, went to Stradbally - mad!! The wind gets funnelled down the Conor Pass and I was overpowered on a 3.7m sail. Mark has a few of his windsurfing mates visiting from Norfolk, so they were going for it! It just goes to show how quickly things change as only a week or so ago we were watching some guys gliding in lovely clear, calm weather, and landing at Kilcummin Strand. Had a long chat with one of them from the Kilkenny Gliding Club, who said that they have two weeks in the Autumn were they are allowed to take off and land along Brandon Bay or at Inch. The views from up there must be fantastic...
