Twelve 1720s sportsboats were afloat for racing on Saturday afternoon at Baltimore Regatta in West Cork. PRO Colette O'Flynn and her team got three races away in light, shifty breezes with the Hegarty's on taking two wins and Atara raced by Ross McDonald and Aoife English taking the final race of the day.
