Apart from the chill in the breeze today and the beautiful colours in the trees around Crosshaven, one might have been forgiven for thinking it was a summer’s day. The sailors were all in high good humour anticipating a an excellent day of sailing with the prospect of two good races and an early return ashore to get back to the club tonight for the final highlight of the event, the prize giving dinner.
Racing outside the harbour today was on two triangular courses with a verycomfortable 8 to 11 knots of breeze from the north with the same conditions pertaining inside the harbour with the fleets on round the cans courses.
All that is left now is for everybody to look forward to the prize giving dinner tonight, which is a sell out evening, and to enjoy a splendid dinner with convivial company.
Special thanks must got to all the visiting yachts, the huge contingent from Kinsale, our neighbors from CSC, all those from east of the south coast and west of the south coast and of course all our own Royal Cork competitors who turned out in such numbers.
The organisers and all volunteers have worked extremely hard to ensure this was the hugely successful Autumn League it turned out to be and many thanks and appreciation must go to Nick Bendon of CH Marine for the generous sponsorship and wonderful prizes.
