It was one of those days on the water that will last in the memory for a very long time. Glorious sunshine, a bit of heat and a light sea breeze. PRO Richard Leonard and his able assistant Sean Dunphy, brought the fleet outside the harbour for the annual ‘McWilliam Series’. A lack of wind warranted a postponement until 13.00hrs. A gentle 6kts settled in from 150 direction allowing the fleet to get in a windward/leeward course for race one. Class 1 completed three rounds while Class’ 2 & 3 completed two rounds of the ‘Laid Course’. The wind shifted West a little for the second race which consisted of a beat and run then tight reach to E2, a run in the harbour to ‘Dognose’ and a fetch to the finish at Cage.
Ian Nagle’s ‘JellyBaby’ led the fleet for both races but the handicap systems brought Alpaca to the front for both races in Class 1. Bad Company had two wins in Class 2 and YaGottaWanna had two wins in Class 3.

Well done all.
See ye Thursday night..
