Yesterday's Combined Clubs September Sailing Events in Cork Harbour saw Royal Cork Yacht Club stage the annual Naval Race writes Bob Bateman

A 16-knot southerly wind allowed RCYC Race Officer Peter Webster set a course east of No.11 buoy to send the fleet on a beat out to the mouth of the harbour to no. 3  buoy.

The fleet enjoyed a run back into the Harbour, a turn to port up the Cobh Roads before finishing off Haulbowline at the Naval Base.

Kieran & Liz O'Brien's MG335 Magnet was the IRC all–in winner of Cork Harbour's Naval Race on Sunday. White Sails IRC was Pat Barrett/Roy Hanan's Plumbat writes Bob Bateman.

As well as a race in itself this year's 15-boat Naval Race formed one of the fixtures in the Cork Harbour sailing co–operation between Monkstown Bay Sailing Club, Cove Sailing Club and Royal Cork Yacht Club. The race was dealyed by a day due to strong winds on Saturday.

The start line was between the Committee Boat and Number 3 buoy. Classes 1, 2 and 3 were sent out to E2 off Roches Point back via Corkbeg to port taking 13 to port and a finish at the Naval Base for well–earned refreshments.

The White Sail fleet had a shorter beat but sailed the same course to the finish. A turning Spring tide carried the fleet into the harbour at 3pm.
