Two boats are travelling from Ireland to take part in the UK's Coutts Quarter Ton Cup hosted by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Cowes, from Monday 14 to Wednesday 16 June 2010. The event is expected to attract a record entry along with some exciting new members of the fleet. Boats will be based in Cowes Yacht Haven for the event, writes Fiona Brown.
Having got a first taste of the fleet aboard his father Neil's Manzanita last year, young George Kenefick will be back again sailing the Kenefick family's newly purchased ASAP know known as TIGER.
This stunning all black 1989 Fauroux design has achieved some great results on the UK circuit for the past two seasons and with the very talented George at the helm plus a crew that includes some of Corks finest young sailors including George Kingston, a Laser European champion, and Donagh Good a Laser Junior National Champion,we can certainly look forward to a good performance from this team.
Tiger has just returned from the Liebherr Cruiser Nationals in Dublin and succesfully won Class 3.
They have begun training for the event and if you look out on Cork harbour this week you will be able to see this immacuately re-stored Quarter tonner.
Also making the trip across the Irish Sea, this time from Dublin, will be Ken Lawless who purchased the immaculately restored Super Nova from Ollie Ophaus and who is looking forward to his first Quarter Ton Cup and just recently finished in third overall in the Liebherr Cruiser Nationals.
For the fifth year running the organisers are delighted to be partnering with Coutts & Co, the UK private banking arm of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
