Light Winds Dominate Second Day of All Ireland Championship

Cork Airport was reporting 4 knots of breeze at 10am and by 10.25am, the time of  the first gun for the J80 fleet this had increased to 6 knots. The sun was up but the breeze at sea level was from the North East and kept shifting and softening.

PRO for the J80 fleet, David O’Brien, got in two races for Flight 2.  The third race was postponed and the race area was moved to the outer harbour at Ringabella Bay and Race 1 of Flight 3 was completed with a shortened course.  An attempt at a second race was abandoned when the wind shifted more into the west.  However, on the second attempt  having changed the course, a second race was completed in this Flight.
