The waiting is over now and this is the last reminder for anyone still wishing to take part in the feeder race from Cork to Dun Laoghaire on Friday next. This promises to be a challenging and exciting race and will feature three Irish Commodores’ Cup yachts from the Royal Cork Yacht Club, Anthony O’Leary in his Ker 39 Antix, Dave Dwyer in his Mills 39 Marinerscove.ie and Andrew Crreighton in the new Corby 36 Roxy 6. This will be Roxy’s first competitive outing and there will be much interest in this latest addition to the fleet. Entry for this race is mandatory for any boat wishing to compete in the Commodores’ Cup.
As entry for the feeder race does not close until 18.30hrs. on Friday, 14th May at the Royal Cork Club Race Office, it is not known yet which boats will sail and which will travel by road. What can be confirmed is Donal O’Leary of RCYC will be sailing his well known D-tox and Schull Harbour Commodore, Morgan O’Donovan in Loco will be using the feeder as a qualifier for his entry to the Round Ireland Race in June.
First gun will be at 19.55 hrs at Weavers Point on Friday and the start line will be a laid line between a committee boat (Adrielle) and an adjacent mark in the harbour. The finish line will be between the lighthouses on the East and West Piers at the entrance to Dun Laoghaire Harbour. Yachts will record their own finish times together with the names and approximate times of boats immediately ahead and astern, if possible. Time limit for the race will be 12.00 hrs on Sunday, May 16th.
