Barry Cunnigham's new Cape 31 ripped up the DBSC race track on last night's final Thursday night race for the 2022 season. 

The vid below by Maurice O'Connell shows the brand new boat under her North Sails A3 reaching kite.

The latest Cape 31 arrival at the Royal Irish Yacht Club is the first of the new ultra-modern sportsboats into Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The new addition to Dublin Bay brings the Irish fleet to five, with three boats already racing in Howth and one at Royal Cork Yacht Club in Cork Harbour since May.

Despite her impressive speed last night, it was John O'Gorman's Sunfast 3600 that eclipsed the new Cape 31 to take the last Thursday night gun in Thursday racing as Afloat reports here.

It's a busy week for Cunningham and the Blast crew who are also entered in an 11-boat Class Zero contest at the Taste of Greystones Regatta this weekend off Wicklow.
