Ted Crosbie's X302 No Excuse took an early lead in the nine boat IRC two class of Royal Cork Yacht Club's CH Marine Autumn League in Cork Harbour writes Bob Bateman.

A grey, damp morning gave way to more pleasant conditions this afternoon for the first races where three race courses were set in ten to 15–knot winds, mainly from the west, with neap tides and high water about 15.00 hrs.

Sports boats (five 1720s and two J80s) sailed windward–leeward courses across the channel starting at Corkbeg buoy. 

The white sail divison had a round the cans course while classes 1,2,3 started down off Cuskinny to a laid weather mark off Cobh (passing "the Holy Ground") effectively a W/L course.

There were three rounds for class 1 and two rounds for classes 2 and 3.

As Afloat.ie reported previously, this year's league features a 'North Sails Ireland' team on the water before and during racing. The aim is to offer trim and set up advice before the start and then once the flag drops to film the racing and debrief in full in the clubhouse.
