Only five boats came to the line for the inaugural Irish Cruiser Racer Association (ICRA) Offshore Trophy at Crosshaven tonight but what the sailing fleet lacked in numbers it made up for in close competition inside Cork Harbour. Under spinnaker Marinercove.ie (Dave Dwyer) led Antix (Anthony O'Leary) out past Roches Point but only by the narrowest of margins. Also heading for Dublin Bay tonight and next week's ICRA National Championships is Andrew Creighton's brand new Roxy 6, Gloves off and D-Tox. Departing on an ebb tide and 12-knot northerly winds the sailors can expect lighter conditions on the east coast over night. Pictures by Bob Bateman later on the Afloat gallery.
