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

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.
