Wicklow Harbour on the east coast of Ireland had an unusual visitor this week with the arrival of the Danish platform ship Wind from Wales. 

The 55m long and 18m wide ship that is heavily involved in the offshore wind industry only visited the south quay at Wicklow for 24 hours or so but made an immediate impression with her unusual platform rig.

Wind has since returned to the other side of the Irish Sea and is currently berthed in Liverpool.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
