19 boats took part and these included two from the UK, two from Schull Community College and a number boats from other clubs including RCYC, KYC and MBSC.

Racing will continue today with the organisers hoping to have three races and another three races on Saturday with Sunday as a spare day.

Results: 1. Anthony O'Leary, Antix: 2. Denis Murphy, Aquatack: 3. Neil Hogan, Micam: 4, Steve Forrester-Cole, Ricochet: 5, Peter O'Flynn, Two 2 Tango.
