Everything is OK here at the Kinsale Yacht Club. I meet a lot of interesting sailors and everyone is kind to me. Now with a fairly long ocean passage down to Porto Santo in the Madeira island group in front of me I indulge in icecreams now and then I also buy books.

The weather out in the Bay of Biscay is not at its best but in a weeks time or so it seams to improve, but it is a long shot.

Jonas Åkerblom has succesfully delivered my car and trailer to Hunnebostrand in Sweden where it is now waiting for my return which might be arund Christmas.

Tomorrow night at about 7.30 I will give an illustrated talk in Cronins Bar Crosshaven for details call Tom Harding 087 9858029 everyone is welcome.

Hopefully the weather will improve.

Respectfully yours Yrvind
