Kinsale Yacht Club Matthews Helly Hansen Spring Series Concludes

The Matthews Helly Hansen sponsored Spring Series hosted by Kinsale Yacht Club concluded last Saturday in glorious sunshine and light winds. PRO Denis Kiernan laid a starting line for the final race of the series just outside Sandycove and used a mixture of local marks for the various fleets. The weather conditions were light with a flood tide making mark rounding interesting for most fleets, especially at marks ‘Centre’ and ‘Sovereign’ where a number of boats had a few attempts at rounding the mark.

On the day there was IRC wins for Alpaca Class 1, Oracle IV Class 2, Diamond Class 3 and Godot White Sail. Overall there was some good results for the Royal Cork boats that ventured over for the 6 race event.

In Class 1 JumpJuice won IRC and Nieulargo won Echo (both RCYC).

Class 2 IRC and Echo was won by Oracle IV (RCYC).

Class 3 IRC was won by Diamond (KYC) and Echo was won by Headcase (KYC).

Whitesail Echo was won by Sweet Dreams (RCYC) and IRC was won by Gunsmoke (KYC).

After racing a club BBQ and prize giving was enjoyed by all.

Thanks to all at KYC for another very enjoyable Spring Series.

Til next year…..
