Shannon

Characteristics

Description

La cote Ouest de l'Irlande, entre Mizen head (la pointe sud) et Erris Head, offre un des plus beau bassin de croisiere d'Europe, Les courants de maree y sont relativement faibles, la brume rare, et de nombreux ports naturels (a defaut de ports de plaisance equipes!) offrent un nombre d'abris surs et accessibles par tous les temps. Mais la houle et les vents d'ouest dominants la reserve aux bateaux et aux equipages capables de remonter au vent dans toutes les conditions de vent et de mer.  Des bons aparaux de mouillage sont egalement indispensables car le manque d'infrastructure oblige bien souvent a compter sur ses ancres!

The West coast of Ireland, from Mizen Head to Erris Head offers interesting and challenging cruising among beautiful scenery. There's an abundance of excellent natural harbours, but very few marinas, so a good anchor is a must as more often than not, night are spend at anchor rather than in a marina!
