Big Winds in Cork Harbour

25th October 2009
Big Winds in Cork Harbour

Blustery conditions swept a combined fleet of 100 Royal Cork cruisers closer to next Saturday's conclusion of the O’Flynn Exhams Solicitors Autumn Regatta. The penulimate round provided an exhilarating day of sailing for all fleets with a west/south west wind at times gusting over 20 knots and with sea conditions which saw water breaking off the Dutchman Rock off Fennell’s Bay writes Claire Bateman. Bob Bateman's photos of the action including Mike Murphy 's Alchimiste, Anthony O'Leary's Custom 1720, Tiamat, Mariners Cove and Blondie are all over the fold:
