Welcome to Arklow. Nice marina showers!!! (best not to count the days) And the kind manager gave us lift to the petrol station for more diesel (something you should know about relocating a sailing yacht over Easter). Here we are alongside the easy-to-access river pontoons – looked a bit tight in the marina basin. Large shopping centre close by on this side of the river. Town centre and harbour access via the road bridge.
And, just when you think you’ve seen everything, a motorised pontoon! They claimed they were recreating the Kon-Tiki expedition!
It is a rather ingenious contraption, or raft, built like a square doughnut with an outboard for manoeuvring and with a central hoist for lifting moorings. This was not an easy process yet a fine way to use up most of a day.
After a day provisioning we are off to Dún Laoghaire and much larger marina set up
