Garda Conor O'Byrne
Garda Conor O'Byrne may not be a name immediately obvious to HYC members, but many will know his father as 'Gerry the Diver' who spends plenty of early mornings cleaning the undersides of keelboats in the marina before competitive events. Gerry's son Conor will be spending the latter part of 2013 and most of 2014 as a crew participating in the next Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

He is posting updates and news on a weblog recording his adventures: whilst raising awareness for his charity 'The Irish Underwater Search and Recovery Unit.'
