Classic racing is back at Volvo Cork Week and Royal Cork Yacht Club's Harold Cudmore was on the helm of the Cork Harbour One Design Jap for a victory on the first day.

1968 French entry Bilou-Belle Tina from the Atlantic Yacht Club is second with Dafydd Hughes Bendigedig in third place in the eight-boat fleet.

Last October, Jap skippered by Harold Cudmore and with a crew that counted former club Admiral Colin Morehead among its number won Le Voile Saint Tropez Classic Regatta in the South of France.

Jap, built in Carrigaloe in 1897 and fully restored and sailing again as part of RCYC's 300th celebrations, took an unassailable lead in her class at the important classic regatta.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
