The weather gods continued to shine on PRO Alan Crosbie and his well-drilled team at sunny Gas Calves Week in Schull, West Cork as the large fleet lined up in a 15–knot westerly wind for another inner harbour start on day two of the event.
The various courses took the fleets on a scenic tour of four of the offshore islands, with the finish line off north harbour Cape Clear, where competitors had a chance to sample the recently completed pontoon facilities.
In Class One IRC, Frank Whelan's 'Eleuthera' scored another victory in the series, while the Echo trophy went to Gary Fort sailing 'Jaguar' from Tralee Sailing Club.
In Class Two, it was victory in both divisions for the Royal Cork's 'Bad Company' holding off fellow club member Kieran Collins 'Coracle' in IRC and Fergus Coughlan's 'Jedi' in Echo.
In Class Three, Dan O Donovan's 'Second Counts' revelled in the lively conditions to hold off the challenge of Great Island Sailing Club's 'Musketeer', while in class 4 IRC, the conditions again suited the Murphy families Moody 'Shelly D' to take podium position with Paul Taylor's Tralee based 'Sea Pslam' winning Echo, despite having an encounter with the Perch rock.
In White Sail One, Dennis Murphy's 'Nieulargo' continued her winning streak in both IRC and Echo while in WS 2 it was a win for local boat 'Dreamcatcher' sailed by Frank Murphy.
