A group of our club 29er Skiff and RS200 sailors took a deserved exam study break to attend the annual Royal Sprint Championship this weekend at the Royal Cork Yacht Club. Two beautiful days of 29er & RS200 racing were held in 10 – 14 knots of wind near the refinery in Cork Harbour .
The overall 29er winning team with an impressive seven (7) bullets over ten races was Chris Bateman & Lola Kohl.
Second place, capturing the remaining three (3) bullets, was Sophie Crosbie & Dawson Kohl. Third & Forth were Jonathan O’Shaughnessy & Atlee Kohl closely followed by Rob Keal & Rory O’Sullivan. In the RS200 division.
Meanwhile in the RS200’s – David Jones & Griff Kelleher took home 1st while Jack Young & Ellie Aneiros were a close 2nd.
Special thanks to the parent volunteers who made this event possible: Anderw Crosbie – Race Officer, Paul Keal, Brian & Mary Jones, Sandie O’Shaughnessy, Linda O’Keeffe, and Barbie Kohl.
