Down South & Southward bound


Leo & Co. have the right idea and set off from Baltimore a few months ago onboard Síle a Dó.
Síle started life as a Hegarty built fishing boat, By the time I first ventured into Hegarty's Leo had been toiling away in a tent for quite awhile, She had at that stage grown several feet longer and had her deck beams in place, I think she had gained a ballast keel and a built out rudder skeg by then as well. She has been sailing locally for the last few seasons. Great to see them off in her now and Leo getting his moneys worth.
