White Sail April League


Eight boats came to the start for the second race in the

 Heineken White Sail April League at the Royal Cork Yacht Club

last Saturday.


Conditions were perfect for a running start with a 15 knot breeze

 from the West. Having crossed the Harbour to Cork Beg,

the fleet proceeded up towards Cobh followed by a trip out

towards Roches Point. At this stage, Flying Colours (TBA) lead

the fleet with Cavatina (Ian Hickey) and Split Point (Seamus Gilroy)

 close behind.


A quick sprint back in the harbour lead to confusion at No 8 Buoy

 where Flying Colours rounded the mark incorrectly leaving the door

open for Cavatina to take the lead and maintain this position to

 take line honours. The remaining fleet enjoyed the stiffening breeze

 which lead to some good close quarter racing.

On corrected time, Split Point took 1st, Molia (Denis Murphy) 2nd and

3rd Raparee (Tom O’Mahony. After two rounds of the league, Molia is lying 1st Overall

with 2nd going to Tranquilizer (Colin Morehead) and 3rd Split Point. Race 3 of the 4 race

 series takes place next Saturday with FG at 1425hrs.
