Today's Crosshaven Traditional Sail pursuit race attracted all types of plus keelboats for a harbour pursuit race, just part of this weekend's line up of attractions in Cork Harbour this weekend. 

Today's start, at 2pm off ‘the Grassy,’ is a traditional sail race starting point for generations of sailors.

Today's fixture, under Race Officer Hugh Cassidy was not just for wooden boats but GRP cruisers over a certain age too.

Leading the fleet here was the wooden-hulled Northele pictured below in our gallery of photos by Bob Bateman
