Hello, fellow Achillies owners. We bought Freebird a 9M back at the end of June in Arklow a few miles south of Dublin. After spending a couple of weekends working on her we set sail to our home port in Clew Bay, Co. Mayo on the west coast. The trip took 10 days and we has every sort of weather from flat calm to holed up in Bere Island waiting for a storm blow through. Her performance was outstanding and we are delighted with this seaworthy boat which is ideal for our wild Atlantic cruising grounds.
We will be upgrading her a good bit this coming winter and hope to gain from the pool of strength obvious in the group.
Anybody know more about this boat? as far as I know she has been in Ireland for a long time.
I will post more pictures shortly.
until then Fair winds,
Duncan
