Day Two of MSL Royal Cork At Home weekend

_MG_9394Following on yesterday’s glorious sailing conditions, today produced light winds to the extent that dinghy racing was abandoned. However, a light breeze filled in and the cruisers got one race in.

However, whatever was lacking in wind was made up for by an oasis of sun, light and warmth pervading the club grounds with everyone present having a wonderful day with plenty of activities on the menu. The crab fishing competition as usual attracted an enormous entry with the official measurer, Stuart Daly, hopefully on double time for his efforts in measuring and enduring some pinches from a few crab claws.

The sun shone at its most brilliant, what seemed to be a myriad of colourful dinghies were sailing to their race area and the Mercedes Benz flags were flying proudly over the club grounds with a large selection of cars from the MSL Group on display and everything in readiness for the At Home festivities to take place tomorrow (Sun) and, as always, eagerly looked forward to with the traditional Royal Cork activities planned for this special annual occasion.DSC_0867Images HERE
