Just one race was completed on day two of Cork Week for the 44-strong 1720 Class European Championships.

Light and shifty winds added to the complexity on the water as Race Officer Ciaran McSweeney and his race management team were obliged to call two general recalls for over-eager 1720 teams before finally getting the fleet away with the Black Flag flying.

Aidan Lynch’s Baltimore Sailing Club team racing MO was the race winner. Second place was adjudged a tie with Kenny Rumball’s Royal Irish team on The Conor Wouldn't, crossing the line with Robert Dix’s Baltimore SC team racing Elder Lemon.

Rope Dock Atara helmed by Ross McDonald retains the lead for the 1720 European Championships. The Conor Wouldn't moves up to second and Padraig Byrne & Donny Wilson’s Zing is in third.
