The third wave of the Blackrock Power Trail heads from the West Pier of Dun Laoghaire Harbour south-east for 2km to Sandycove Beach. Cache 17 is near the St George’s Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire Marina.
The Blackrock Power Trail Series (BRPT)
The series started its life in Idrone Terrace on Dublin Bay behind Blackrock Village and has now spread both north-west and south-east from the original Cache. Caches range from an easy 1/1 D/T through to the hardest being a 3/4.
The rules of Geocaching are such that no cache can be within 160 metres (0.1 miles or 528 feet) of another cache... so you will find that the caches in this series are generally about 200 metres apart from each other. There are also some other caches along the route that you may want to pick up as you go.
The 17th cache in the BRPT series is a 2-inch long magnetic test tube. GZ takes you to one of the deepest parts of the Dun Laoghaire Marina. This area is used mainly for the berthing of large yachts and tall ships. It is placed beyond the barrier fence, but you don’t have to climb over to reach it.
