SCORA, the South Coast Offshore Racing Association, has cancelled Saturday's Kinsale to Baltimore race, a 'feeder' to West Cork prior to Calves Week, due to expected weather conditions.

SCORA Commodore Daragh Connolly announced this afternoon that the race will be deferred until Sunday.

"We have been watching the weather this Saturday, and we are postponing the KYC SCORA Baltimore race from Saturday 5th to Sunday 6th FG 10.55. Hopefully, this will encourage more entries also".
