Quarter Tonner Bandit in New Hands for Kinsale League

#KINSALE – With only a week to the start of Kinsale's big April Series, the final race of the yacht club's March league saw some new faces on familiar boats. Kieran O'Connell and Graham Marron who have recently acquired the Quarter Tonner Bolero 'Bandit' (formerly owned by Ian Travers) were on the water for some early season practice. Quarter ton sailing is on a high this season with Cork week regatta centre stage in the 2012 programme. Conditions couldn't have been better yesterday with a brisk 15–knot southerly wind in Kinsale harbour. Joker, a Sigma 38, owned by Mike Brodrieck and Dave Gibbons won the overall  March league prize.
