Monkstown Bay Sailing Club’s October Cork Harbour dinghy league ended with Class 1 top place going to Laser sailor Ronan Kenneally. He had a total of 8 points from six races, winning two, second in three, discarding one placing. He was two points ahead of an RS400 and a GP14.
Sandy Rimmington and Richie Harrington in the RS 400 and Alex Barry and Ken Murphy in the GP finished on 10 points.
This resulted in a ‘tie-breaker’ where each race result throughout the series is taken into account. The RS200 crew had two firsts, a second and two thirds. The GP 14 sailors also had two firsts. They counted two thirds, but had one fourth, which cost them second place, pushing them to third overall.
In Class 2 Harry Pritchard sailing his Laser was well ahead overall, finishing on six points from eight races, seven of which he won and finished second in the other. It was a strong performance by the young sailor. Two Topper sailors were next. Cian McDonagh was second on 19 points and Frances Corkery third on 20.
