We arrived yesterday (Saturday) after spending Friday night in Dublin, but with only half our luggage.Somewhere between Windsor and Dublin are 3 suitcases with all of Liz's and my stuff, life jackets, sailing wear, and all the special Canadian gear we were bringing.It has been frustrating trying to shop for new clothes, since Ireland has had a heat wave and all the summer clothing has sold out. I have been running around in a pair of flowery swimming trunks, the only short pants available in two of the "big' stores here. Everyone here has been extremely helpful and we are ready to start the Nationals tomorrow.We spent the day getting the boats measured and rigged with time out for shopping for essential clothes and food. The weather has been hot with light variable winds and the same is expected tomorrow. Nearly all the boats here are fibre glass with Bermuda rigs, but there are a few wooden hulls still around.The club facilities are great and we have been loaned a huge tent and enough equipment to be comfortable.
