Magic Day for finale of CH Marine Autumn Series

A light south Easterly breeze,a holiday atmosphere in the club and a stillness in the air greeted competitors for the final days racing in the CH Marine Series . The trees on the way to Crosshaven mellow with golden and brown colours following a month that has been mild for the most part and it is is true some sailors would have liked a little more breeze but the good weather allowing sailing will certainly help to shorten the winter.. The harbour was busy,the CH Marine league was active both in the inner and outer harbour. The optimists sailing in the Cobbler League were on the Curlane Bank as were the toppers. The lasers on a four day training stint and angling boats could be found anchored anywhere and large trawlers were outward bound heading for the fishing grounds .Into this mix came the tall ship “Roald Amundsen” from Cologne to it’s Twinned Sister of Cork .Jack Palmer(17)an enthusiastic sailor from Cobh was one of those on board..
The Class three and four Cruisers and White Sail got in two races with David O’Brien as PRO and course for race one was to number three back to eight out again to three back to five and finish. Meanwhile classes one ,two and 1720 were sailing windward leeward courses just east of Roche’s Point.
