Dun Laoghaire Regatta Day Two: Cruisers Racing, Dinghies & One Designs Postponed Due to High Winds

10th July 2015

#dlregatta – Strong southerly winds have led to the postponement of some of the 29–racing classes at Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta this morning. All cruiser classes are racing but dinghies & one designs  are postponed due to winds hitting 30 knots in gusts across Dublin Bay. 

There was a dramatic start close to the Sandycove shoreline for the coastal class in Scotsman's Bay this morning for 25–competing boats.  Local Farr 42, WOW, the Irish IRC Zero champion, that took an early lead yesterday was to the fore again as the fleet cleared Sandycove point led by the Cookson 50, Lee Overlay Partners.

Race officers are hoping for winds to moderate so all classes can race.
