Celebrations of 75 years of the Irish Navy continued in Cork Harbour this afternoon with the annual Naval Race run under the burgee of the Royal Cork Yacht Club

It followed yesterday's successful Cobh to Blackrock race organised by Cove Sailing Club as Afloat reported here.

The Naval Race was started at Weavers Point on a line between the RCYC starting hut and the LE William Butler Yeats that stood off Roches Point to provide a transit.

The Race Officer was RCYC's Rear Admiral Keelboats Daragh Connolly who set the competing yachts a course that took in Ringabella, the Harp mark and a spinnaker run.

The patrol vessel's horn was used as a starting sound signal.

In the IRC spinnaker division, Denis and Annamarie Murphy's Nieulargo was first and Tom and Cormac MacSweeney's Scribbler II second. Full results are here

Yesterday's Combined Clubs September Sailing Events in Cork Harbour saw Royal Cork Yacht Club stage the annual Naval Race writes Bob Bateman

A 16-knot southerly wind allowed RCYC Race Officer Peter Webster set a course east of No.11 buoy to send the fleet on a beat out to the mouth of the harbour to no. 3  buoy.

The fleet enjoyed a run back into the Harbour, a turn to port up the Cobh Roads before finishing off Haulbowline at the Naval Base.

Kieran & Liz O'Brien's MG335 Magnet was the IRC all–in winner of Cork Harbour's Naval Race on Sunday. White Sails IRC was Pat Barrett/Roy Hanan's Plumbat writes Bob Bateman.

As well as a race in itself this year's 15-boat Naval Race formed one of the fixtures in the Cork Harbour sailing co–operation between Monkstown Bay Sailing Club, Cove Sailing Club and Royal Cork Yacht Club. The race was dealyed by a day due to strong winds on Saturday.

The start line was between the Committee Boat and Number 3 buoy. Classes 1, 2 and 3 were sent out to E2 off Roches Point back via Corkbeg to port taking 13 to port and a finish at the Naval Base for well–earned refreshments.

The White Sail fleet had a shorter beat but sailed the same course to the finish. A turning Spring tide carried the fleet into the harbour at 3pm.
