Kinsale Spring Series finishes on a high

Easterly winds of between 20 and 25 knots were the order of the day for the final day of racing of the Spring Series at Kinsale. The wind coupled with a west going tide provided boisterous conditions as only Kinsale seas can throw up.

The day was not without incidents with many retirals and a collision at the start of the final race for Class 4. Unsurprisingly, there were not too many spinnakers visible and in Race 1 none at all were hoisted in Class Zero 1. In Class 2 the boys on Bad Company were brave enough to try as also was Leonard Donnery’s No Gnomes. In Class 3 Eamonn Rohan’s Anchor Challenge was also up for it. However, it was the beats that were to provide the most testing conditions.

Kieran Twomey’s Gloves Off won Class 0 IRC, Eamonn Rohan’s Anchor Challenge took Class 3 IRC while Michael Murphy’s Shelly D took first in ECHO and second in IRC.

The event also counted for the SCORA League and to-day’s (Saturday) racing was sponsored by Ron Holland Design.
