Kinsale Yacht Club has cancelled today's second day of racing at its 2019 Sovereign's Cup regatta due to easterly winds forecast to gust to 40-knots by lunchtime writes Bob Bateman.

The 95-boat fleet completed a full programme of racing in yesterday's opening day of the O'Leary Life sponsored series and Afloat's coverage from all the classes yesterday is in one handy link here

As predicted by Afloat here, some of the early leaders in the series (that concludes on Saturday) already have their sights set on overall victory.

All are competing for class wins as well as the overall Sovereign’s Cup for the best boat under IRC rating and the Portcullis Trophy for best boat under ECHO performance handicapping.

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.
