The firm's Ross O'Leary says 'Jeanneau was one of the best-represented brands in the race with eight starters in the 54-boat fleet.
A tough 2018 edition included all conditions with ideal starting conditions, downwind sailing off the south coast, tough upwind work on the West Coast to some of the fleet being becalmed off the north coast.
Three Sun Fasts 3600’s completed the race – ‘Bellino’ & ‘Diablo’ 2 handed and Dublin Bay's ‘YOYO’ competed in the fully crewed division. ‘Bellino’ finished second in Class 2, third in the two handed division and eighth overall, an impressive two-handed sailing feat.
One Sun Fast 3200 ‘Hakuna Matata’ and an older JOD 35 finished within two hours of each other.
There was a shout out too from MGM to the two Sun Fast 37s from the Irish Offshore Sailing School.
And it was a case of Better luck next time to ‘Wild Spirit, the’ Sun Odyssey 40 who retired off the south-west coast.
