If you know me at all, you probably know already that I am crazy about sailing. Ireland was one of the countries where the Volvo Ocean Race had a stop over this season. We had the best weather so far this year last weekend, and Galway was shining. The Volvo Ocean race is the second largest sporting event this country ever had, just after the Riders Cup.
All this is due to the Irish entry in the Race – the Green Dragon boat. Millions have been invested in the boat by a number of Irish people, and there is a well known Anne Heraty from CPL who is within them and made it all happen.
I wish to thank Anne personally. I haven’t been on a Volvo Ocean Race boat before, and it meant a lot to me as a passionate sailor.
