Adiós, Marineros

This afternoon.

Dublin Bay.

The 270-foot-long Cuauhtémoc (named after the last Aztec Emperor) – one of the world’s largest Tall Ships – which was berthed at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay for a five-day visit here, leaves Dublin.

Probably worried about all the poo, but what can you do.

There’s no concealing hundreds of yards of brown water.

A video I shot today of the Mexican Naval ship leaving Dublin port.

Save Poolbeg.

    Stunning ship. That massive Mexican fleg swaying to and fro on John Rogerson’s Quay would put any Nordie to shame.

    A few years ago I was working in a building right by the East Link bridge. When the tall ships came in, we had a ringside seat, so to speak. And this beauty was possibly the most incredible sight (there was another similarly large ship, which I would tie for the honour – Argentinian, I think).

    The sailors all lined up on deck at attention and gave honours to the port as they arrived. It was truly something to see.
