Royal Cork October League: Brothers Nin and Peter O'Leary brought Marinerscove home first in both of yesterday's races in class zero of the O'Flynn Exhams October league.What started out as a dull grey day turned into a sparking afternoon on Cork Harbour and building breeze. The leaders in Class Zero were again the Commodores Cup boats led by Mark Mansfield in Tim Costello’s Tiamat on the water but the real tussle for the overall lead was between Eamon Rohan’s Blondie helmed by Mark Richmond with Prof O’Connell on board, and Marinerscove with the newly crowned All Ireland Champion Nin steering and Peter calling tactics. Bob Bateman's photos of a cracking day's sailing on the south coast are over the fold:
