Today's “Cobh Peoples Regatta” was a celebration of sail with boats vying to win Cork Harbour’s most valuable silverware writes Bob Bateman.

Today's cruiser racing followed yesterday's Cobh People's dinghy regatta, as Afloat reported here.

A blustery day with a lot of west in it, allowed Cove Sailing Club organisers to set a course starting off Cuskinny with a beat to Whitepoint and a run down past Cobh (several rounds) gave spectators a  grandstand view to enjoying the atmosphere of this Harbour Town and as an added bonus, on this occasion, Cobh had the visit of the beautiful Cruise ship Zuiderdam as an impressive backdrop.

In Class1, Brian Jones J109, Jelly Baby was the winner with Ronan Downing's Miss Whiplash second and George Radley's Cortegada third.

In the White Sail division, Mazu skippered by Denis Ellis, was first with Roy Hannon's Plumbat second and No Gnomes, Leonard Donnery third.
