Mansfield Holds 1720 Lead

3rd September 2011
Mansfield Holds 1720 Lead

Mark Mansfield holds the lead after six races at the 1720 Corona Euro Championships in Baltimore, West Cork. Nicholas O'Leary onboard T-Bone owned by Crosshaven duo Tom Durcan and Clive O'Shea is now in second place having discarded an ocs from yesterday and father Anthony is in third on the same number of points.
Testing conditions off Sherkin today with strong tides and 12-14 knot winds. Three further races in the series were completed despite a bit of a delay for resetting the course between Races 5 and 6.
Race Officer David O'Brien commented
'Races were longer than yesterday and that made racing more testing for the competitors. There were no black flags today although there was a general recall. Racing is on schedule to complete the championship tomorrow.'

We've got a favour to ask

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.
