#1720 – You're in good time for the 1720 National Championships or any of this year's 1720 fixtures (see comment below from the class association) if you opt for this fun one design sports boat that the seller, MGM Boats, says is all set for the 2014 season. 

Moored in Cork, this 1997–built boat is a 'really clean' example. The boat comes well equipped with a full sail wardrobe, fully kitted road trailer with masting kit and lockers.

At €12,500, she's yours to sail away!

#1720 – Anthony O'Leary celebrated his 1720 National title win on his home waters of Cork Harbour at the weekend, beating his two sons Nicholas and Peter for the overall prize in the 12–boat fleet. The racing took place from Cork Harbour Marina at Monkstown Bay.  

In what turned out to be an O'Leary fmaily battle for the sportsboat title, the points going into last day were: Anthony O'Leary (AOL) 10, Nicholas O'Leary (NOL) 11 and Peter O'Leary (POL) 11 with Mark Mansfield (MM)  two further adfrift on 13 points.

Mansfield took a race win on the first race on Saturday morning in quite shifty eight to ten kont winds off the land, giving points as follows MM 1, AOL 2, NOL 3 and POL 4 in the penultimate race. So the final race had so many possibilities that it was there to be won by any one of the top four albeit, Anthony had a slight advantage.

With a stiffer breeze of 10 -12 knots, Anthony led all the way to get his only race win of the event - to add to six second places - and take the 1720 Irish title.
