Absolutely crazy in Ireland

I spotted this sticker on the pier at Currabinny, Co. Cork. I have no idea what “Absolutely, Crazy – Cowes’05” refers to and a quick bit of research didn’t show up anything.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

    Well Cowes is on the Isle of Wight and I know they hold a big regatta every year but beyond that I’ve no idea. Is that a Shamrock or a clover ?

    I’d assume that Cowes 05 refers to Cowes week regatta on the Isle of Wight – see the way that the top of the hat looks like the hull of a boat? I’m also curious as to what appear to be letters on the upright of the cap – T/4 TC?? Nothing thrown up on google…

    I think you’re right. Elly left a comment on my blog post suggesting it had to do with the Isle of Wight too. Not sure about the shamrock, that’s what threw me off!
