The Cork Harbour Combined Clubs July Sailing League will conclude tomorrow night (Friday).

First Gun will be at 7 pm and the start area for the race will be in the vicinity of No.9 buoy off Whitegate. Monkstown Bay Sailing Club has been running the league for July. RCYC will take over for August. Great Island SC ran the league in June.

Prizegiving for July will be held at the Monkstown Club after racing tomorrow night. This is the first season in which the three harbour clubs have combined their weekly Friday racing. The highest number of boats racing has been over 30 and the lowest number was 8.

Overall there has been satisfaction with the combined series which followed joint racing last year between MBSC and Cove SC, the latter being replaced this season by the new GISC.
