Illustrated Lectures @ CY&BC;!
Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club will hold their final illustrated lecture of this year on on 11th March at 8pm.
This lecture is entitled “North Atlantic Crescent” and will be hosted by Paddy Barry and will focus on his 2015 voyage from Dublin to the Faroe Islands, Iceland and East Greenland.
Paddy’s trip was part of a wider journey of island-hopping from Ireland to Greenland and back by way of the Hebrides, Faroes and Iceland; re-tracing the likely voyages Irish monks such as St. Brendan made, centuries ago. This overall project was given a name, The North Atlantic Crescent Adventure 2015; our scope, one leg of it, was to sail to Greenland, attempt some climbs, ideally first ascents, of the coastal peaks of the Lemon mountain range, before sailing 240 miles down the coast to the village of Tasiilaq.
This event is free, but a small donation at the door in aid of Dublin Simon Community is appreciated.
