#rtir – A Cork based Quarter Tonner yacht will represent Irish hopes in Saturday's Round the Island Race. Jason Lostys Illes Pitiuses, a modified Farroux quarter ton, will compete in the Solent's Round the Island Race. The boat will be crewed by Cove Sailing club members from Cork Harbour and will also be a warm up for the Coutts Quarter Ton Cup which starts next Wednesday.
