Cobh pays tribute to Ostar winner
Barry Hurley and Dinah, with crewmate Andy Boyle, arrived home in Cobh at 1400hrs on Sunday 2 August, having sailed from New York via the Azores, to be met by a welcoming flotilla led by two Cork Harbour pilot boats, a Naval Service Rib and boats from Cove Sailing Club.






Above: Dinah brings it all back home 

Dinah was in front of the Quays Bar and Restaurant for a Civic Reception hosted by Cobh Town Council, and then moved to East Ferry Marina for an evening of song and dance and the odd drink. Barry returns to work at O2, the telecoms firm, and Andy to IBM on Tuesday morning. Team
