    That's a CPV (seems to be coping with the conditions but I wouldn't like to be on board). The HPV is double the displacement
    Hull form would dictate degree of pitch and roll, stabilizers would dampen pitch and role to degree but anything above 5 dgrees pitch or four degrees roll either side of centre washed out flying stations.

    While the roll rate on the CPV is quite stable, the pitch is probably in excess of 10 degrees.
    Just visiting

    The Naval Service is unable to provide a ship for tours this Open Weekend


    Unfortunately the Irish Naval Service are unable to provide a vessel for tours during this years Open Weekend due to operational reasons. A ship was due to be at the City Quays on both Saturday and Sunday, and over the last number of years has proved to be hugely popular with the public. The Cork Harbour Open Day committee and the Irish Naval Service regret this unavoidable development, and apologise for any disappointment caused.

    However, there will still be plenty of activity in Cork City. On the Saturday Scouting Ireland host a fun raft race at the City Quays at 1PM and there is an inter-firm Dragon Boat Race at Cork Boat Club between 3PM and 7PM. Also on Saturday there is an open day at Cork Boat Club from 11AM where visitors can view the facilities while enjoying a coffee and home baking in the café.

    On both Saturday and Sunday Atlantic Sea Kayaking will be there to take you under the bridges of the river Lee at a special Open Weekend price of €40 per person. The launch from Lapps Quay opposite the Boardwalk Bar and Grill. See their website, linked below, for more details.
