In some of the more compact cruiser-racers, the owner-skipper’s preferred role is as crew boss, and this is the approach of HYC Honorary Sailing Secretary Caroline Gore-Grimes on her family’s well-tested X 302 DUX. It’s an arrangement which worked a treat at the Frank Keane ICRA Nats from June 7th to 9th at the Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire. IRC Division 3 mustered a fleet of 23 boats, with Rory Fekkes’ souped-up Beneteau F’n Gr8 from Carrickfergus fresh from success in the Scottish Series. It looked like more of the same, with F’n Gr8 winning the first two races. But DUX had logged a couple of useful thirds, and then in the next two days her scoreline was 1,1,1,1,2 to give her IRC 3 by a very clear margin, and make her ICRA Overall Champion as well.
