I worked out on Whiddy Island for over a year while the SPM Pipeline was being built. This was being built after the explosion on Whiddy Island. It was enjoyable, we learned fire fighting, how to sail. I took minutes of meetings when the directors of Ascon, Whiddy Oil and Ove Arups had their weekly meetings. I took deliveries that were sent to the Island, collected post from the post office in Bantry. Arranged lunches, travel for the directors and organized on and off site meetings.
Beautiful Island, different place to work, loved getting the boat to work.
Sailing to work in the winter was the only con.
