The annual Schull Harbour Sailing Club Fastnet Race attracted 17 entries last Saturday. Starting from the harbour line in a 10-knot northerly breeze the fleet were able to carry their kites all the way to the rock in near-perfect sea conditions.

However, the return trip proved more problematic as the falling breeze became more cyclonic coupled with the falling tide.

Line honours went to Aidan Heffernans Indulgence who was the only boat to finish in under four hours, while the Echo division winner was the Quinlan family sailing Quinsea with Club commodore Flor O'Riordan winning IRC in Big Cheers.
