Jo, we are back home in the States with wonderful memories of our travels in Ireland. Tops among those memories, say the boys, are the 5 days of sailing with SailCork. At dinner with friends, last night each of them described it as their absolute favorite part of the trip. So thanks to you, Eddie, and everyone there, but especially their young instructor whose name I don't know how to spell! Calad, Kalid, Cal Ed? Anyone, the loved it and learned plenty. I'll keep looking out for that email from, what, "klickconnect.com" or whatever it is.
All the best.
