After three days of light and complex racing, a sea breeze kicked in on Day Four to spice up the action on the penultimate day

Jonathan Anderson’s J/122 El Gran Senor from the Clyde Cruising Club had a good day at the races, to claim third for the series.

Racing was tight in IRC One; El Gran Senor tied for second place in the last race of the day with Shaun Douglas’ Game Changer.

Racing at Cork Week concludes tomorrow on five race areas, in and outside Cork Harbour, organised by the Royal Cork Yacht Club. 

A number of protests are still to be heard, so results are provisional.

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.
