Curt Mundy - Boatshed Ireland
Originally from Oregon in the States, I sailed into Ireland with my wife Sandra (Argentina) and my daughter Jessie who was 5 almost 20 years ago after cruising round the world on our Nicholson 38, Ruby's Rascal.
Based in Kinsale, I work closely with the team for Boatshed Ireland photographing boats and liaising with customers.
I met the founders - Neil & Mandy before Boatshed was even born. They arrived in Kinsale on their classic ketch October 1998 heading south. There were 4 other boats left Kinsale, heading across the Biscay pretty much at the same time, 1 was never to be seen again, the other 3 had stories of their own to tell. I was onboard my boat 24th October 1998, listening to the VHF and it was blowing really hard outside, storm 10 later. There was a yacht in distress and only later did I learn that it was Neil & Mandy, but that's another story.
If you have any cruising queries I'm real happy to talk about them and offer advice from my experiences.
