On a balmy summers evening with a patchy north westerly breeze of some 8 to 10 knots ten boats from the Royal Cork Yacht Club, led by Donal O’Leary’s D-Tox, set sail for Schull tonight looking forward to the festivities and feast of fun and sailing that is Calves Week. The event this year is sponsored by Saab, Airtech Security and A&L Castors.

Tradition was broken when the start of this traditional race west took place from the Grassy Walk rather than Weavers Point. Tomorrow (Sat) the Cork and Kinsale White Sail fleets will race from Kinsale to Schull departing at 8am to give them a daylight race.
