Traditional boat racing in Connemara

Visitors to the west of Ireland can often see the old “hookers” – traditional work boats – during races that are held throughout the Summer. These pics were taken near Srutháin in Connemara a couple of weeks ago. We were looking good for second until an incident at the last mark caused us to drop two places! Thanks to the O Tuairisgs for the day out.
