4th July 2011 (Matthew Chapman)

We enjoyed delicious Connall's pancakes for breakfast this morning and had a special treat when some dolphins swam alongside the boat for the afternoon.

We’re currently heading north from Ireland with a good south easterly wind. A murder mystery event starts tomorrow (Monday 4th July) with the crew, should be great fun.

Update

Just started race 1 of The Tall Ships Races 2011, very light winds. Trainees all keen and getting on well.

The crew from the Swan won The Tall Ships Races 2011 - intership yacht race at Dunmore East last night.
