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…..
