The forecast wind was W/SW 14 to 24knots and nobody could dispute that it was incorrect. Whitesail 1 and 2 and Class 4 were with RO David O’Brien and team who set up a line down off Whitegate and sent off Class 4 first, having waited while the Brittany Ferries Bretagne passed inward bound on her way to Ringaskiddy.

National 18 Laying Up Supper, with Guest Star Elvis Presley

ElVISm

The National 18 Class Laying Up Supper will take place on 15 November in the Club Dining Room. As usual there will be a big bag of trophies awarded to worthy winners for the year, and an equally big bag of trophies for some less worthy but equally deserving candidates.

For a change from the usual razzmatazz of dubious performers, this year we’ve gone all out and have booked the one and only Mr Elvis Presley as our Guest Star.  We hope he will get a warm National 18 welcome, and look forward to his performance.

Booking is essential. Contact Rory Fitzparick or Willie Healy tel: 086 8554562 to confirm your place or book a table.…
