Galway wins bid to host last leg of 2012 Volvo Ocean Race!

Galway is all set to host the mother of all parties in 2012 ,when they will host the final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Anyone who was lucky to be there in 2009 during that glorious spell of weather should be looking forward to doing it all over again, and hopefully the sun will shine like last time.

there was never any contest - with the reception they got last time, they couldn't but come back to Galway - it will be brilliant rain or shine - it puts the (f)arts festival in the shade. Pity it wasn't every year.

yes, bloody freezing this morning but now there is not a cloud in the sky and it is warming up nicely - people were out in shorts yesterday (although it was mostly the students as it is rag week). Delighted to see the cops driving all over the streets this year - after last years disgrace with the students. They seemed to be a bit better behaved this year.
