A magnificent days sailing was enjoyed by the competitors at the Kinsale Spring Series for Races 7 and 8 of the series today (Sun). Today’s racing was sponsored by Masts ad Rigging. The bigger boats were on the round the cans course while Classes 3 and 4 had windward/leeward, the White Sail having their own course.
Classes Zero and One had a general recall for the first race and got away on the second attempt, John Godkin on Godot getting the best start. They enjoyed a long beat with Antix in the lead followed closely by Marinerscove.ie, Gloves Off, and Godot who seemed to be very much on their tail but also seemed to have some difficulty in getting the spinnaker drawing.
Antix won both races today with Marinerscove.ie second in both races and this leaves them just one point apart with Dave Dwyer’s Mariners in the lead. Jelly Baby, Nagle and O’Mahony, are leading the Zero and One Restricted IRC with Conor Doyle’s Freya second. In IRC 2 Jermony McCarthy in Harmony leads from Denis Coleman’s Thunderbird. In IRC 3 Ian Travers’ Bolero, Bandit, has a good lead over Alan Bateman’s Pathfinder and in Class 4 Mike Sexton’s GK 24 Granny Knot is just one point clear of Alan Mulcahy’s Sundancer.
All results to date include one discard.
