This is a short blog about the marvellous boats on Achill, a small island on the edge of the west coast of Ireland.
The blog is short because I have a concert tomorrow at the National Concert Hall and have to do a bt of a practice. And also because there is so much to say about the yawls and the people who make them and sail them.
Sailing a yawl is nothing like sailing an 11 metre yacht. The former is sailing by the seat of your pants.
Here are a few scale models of Achill Island yawls.
