Once again our team racing team have done us very proud on the 2k circuit , with a second place at the event in Rome. I spoke with Fred Cudmore the team Captain and he was very happy with the result as always he supplied the club with a report of the event which is as follows
Cork 2nd at Rome 2K
Eight teams from Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland gathered at the Reale Club Tevere Remo, Rome for the first 2K tour event of 2015. Two days of intense round robin racing saw a three way tie break at the top between Cork, YYCS and Spinnaker.
The final day on Sunday started with rain and no wind but PRO Constanzo Villa managed to get in 4 of the critical race to complete the round robin. The final saw last year’s runner up Royal Cork face YCCS. It was the Italians who emerged as winners in a sun drenched final.
