    keep your boat overnight so you can participate in the Open the following day The Official Launch and Naming of 14 166 will be followed that Saturday evening with a celebratory drinks reception in the clubhouse where we will extend our renowned CY BC welcome to all Naming of 14 166 it is a tradition when naming a new IDRA14 that the name begins with the first letter of the club where it is built or built for IDRA14 166 as yet has no name but we know it does have to begin with a C for Clontarf So please put your thinking caps on and send us some of your suggestions I think we could even stretch to a prize for the suggestion that is used but one thing to bear in mind the name will not be revealed until the day of the official launch 25th of June 2016 suggestions to idra ne u ld mail o The end of riveting How many hours have we spent riveting this boat Only Ronan knows as he was responsible for the vast majority Other members of the team chickened out pleading all manner of excuses from the possibility of deafness claims to lack of dexterity Ronan inimitably took the long road and stuck to the task with numerous helpers Rumours of nocturnal visits by elves and gnomes cannot be discounted These were the last 3 nails waiting to be riveted the total number of nails in our build of 14 166 is 1866 phew that was a lot of banging You can take a look at the video here https www youtube com watch v SaOCSWlbBno Floor bearers The floor bearers are now glued in place They are light 9mm mahogany pieces notched to suit the planking below and create a level surface for the flooring This is a site of innovation in the build The height of the bearers was determined by a displacement calculation undertaken using the Solidworks program used by Ruairi Grimes to create the computer model of the boat As mentioned in previous updates we will be using a solid foam material between these bearers topped with a not slip board to create the buoyancy for the boat Side decks Creating the surface for the side decks requires fitting a series of under deck diagonal struts and horizontal ties between sheer strakes and inboard deck carlings We got fancy with the diagonal struts Having a band saw and a table mounted belt sander courtesy of Festool via Michael McGuigan made this extensive task much easier particularly with the struts Each strut is slightly different Getting one to fit well is a leap forward in the process as it can be used as a partial template but each strut needs individual tailoring and finishing and the machinery took the drudgery out of the task The ties are notched into the carlings and sheer strakes and the whole framework is screwed and glued together It is very strong

    the GP They quickly pulled away from the rest of the fleet and had their own ding dong for whole race The rest of the fleet were very spread out and as with last week some flew spinnakers when the wind was too light resulting in the loss of many places The strong ebb tide also played a part as those who stayed out too far lost out Claire McGowan in the Topper realised that the wind was too light and retired at the end of the first round Finally as the wind lightened again the Fireball pulled away from the GP and took line honours Third across the line was a Fireball Owen Clerkin followed by Mark McGowan in his Laser The rest struggled a bit and even though we had extended the time limit this week the last boat home Declan Mallon Laser Radial just scraped in with 18 seconds to spare The light conditions and the fast dropping tide level made it impossible to hold a second race It would appear that the faster boats seem to do better on average on the Portsmouth Yardstick Handicap System and we will have to address this for the next series in the spring Ashore on the promenade at the starting line we had a display board advertising the Adult Sailing Course which the Club will run next May To our surprise we got enquiries even in December There was a lot of other activity out on the water Ten young girls from the local Sea Scouts passed up and down in canoes being minded by guy in a rib There were Rowing Skiffs and Currachs from East Wall out practicing Our own John O Connell was trying out his new rib on the water for the first time and

    when planning the series The start went ahead at 11 30 with all boats clearing the line within 20 secs The wind was SSE but very patchy This resulted in different sides of the beat being favoured at different times The boats inevitably got very spread out The Fireball got to the weather mark with a big lead only to nearly lose it when he got becalmed on the downwind legs Form in previous races seemed to mean little with places downwind changing like a game of snakes and ladders At one stage it looked so calm that the 1 5 hour time limit might cause problems Finally the Fireball Joe Murphy got enough wind to pull clear and take line honours followed by Mark McGowan Laser who strode past Shane Brodie IDRA 14 on the last leg to the finish The wind had come up a bit but dropped again and became very variable in direction so the decision was made not to proceed with the second race 4 races have now been completed so one discard comes into play and of course there are 4 weekends left so it s a long way to go Ashore on the promenade at the start finish line it proved a very busy place with scores of Sunday walkers and a charity run that passed us in both directions There are many good comments from the public who are delighted to see active sailing so late in the year It is doing the Club a lot of good in PR terms as many of the passers by stop to chat and all racing is done using the inner marks only which is great from a spectators point of view We now intend having notices at the start line advertising the Annual Christmas

    and is well protected by the Cruisers who are wintering on the premises The very successful Club Prizegiving dinner the night before had some competitors showing definate signs of fatigue before sailing and one of them Barry Linnane failed to make it on to the water A steady SSE wind filled in and thankfully never got above force 4 during sailing thus allowing perfect sailing conditions We had an additional three entries this week a Fireball Owen Clerkin a 420 Lois Mehaffy and a Laser Mark McGowan joining in Eleven boats competed and two races were held The newly revised short courses are working very well The first start was fabulous with a perfect start by Mark McGowan and all boats starting whitin 10 secs The Fireball really showed its paces and was followed by Harry Cronin in the 420 and Mark McGowan in the Laser Aidan Cronin was the only capsize but managed to finish OK Lois Mehaffy retired and came ashore for repairs The second race showed how competitors can get a bit forgetful and not watch out for the flags or listen to the hooter The start was awful the first boat was 12 secs late crossing with the second 10 secs further back and it got worse the last two boats both IDRA 14 s took 1 min 23 secs and 1 min 41 secs to cross the start line The second race was shortened to one lap Again the line honours went to the same boats as previous race the Fireball followed by a 420 Laser The racing is attracting great attention from the public and some members who walk the prominade on a Sunday and is a great advertisment for the Club Also it s great to see such a crowd in the bar
