Today's Crosshaven Traditional Sail pursuit race attracted all types of sailing dinghies from National 18s, Enterprises to Rankins plus vintage keelboats for a harbour pursuit race, just part of this weekend's line up of attractions for the Traditional Boat Festival in Cork Harbour. As Tom MacSweeney reported earlier, today's start, at 2pm off ‘the Grassy,’ is a traditional sail race starting point for generations of sailors.

Shooting from a local clinker–built punt, Afloat photographer Bob Bateman was there to capture the unique fleet on a lovely afternoon in Cork Harbour.
