30th June 2009

The World's first international One Design keelboat made a welcome return to Dublin Bay last night and picked up first place in one of the bay's newest classes, the White Sail division. Hal Sisk's replica Colleen Bawn was the light air winner of a race where an ebbing tide was of significant tactical advantage. Full results over the fold:
