Sun Ireland sailing, kayaking and windsurfing

Sun Ireland employees learn new skills on the water This weekend's weather was very unusual for Ireland, warm and sunny with a light southerly breeze. The members of Sun Ireland's sports and social club met at Fingal sailing school, beside a thatched cottage in Malahide. The instructors gave us brief lessons and practice in uphauling the sailboard sail, turning the sailboard, righting the sailboat, and a few other things. Our little girl watched from shore and laughed "tip over!", "tip up!" There were quite a few capsizes and we were thankful that even the murky water of the broadmeadows estuary was relatively warm.

P.S. Yeah we were sailing uphill ;-)
P2.S. What does this have to do with OpenSolaris? Oh, it was fun to see Java and Solaris engineers in open boats on the open water and later hear them openly debate in a pub.
