A south-east lump with a 12-knot breeze (gusting to 18/20 knots later) greeted our competitors on the fourth morning of the Custom Rigging Frostbite series at Kinsale Yacht Club.

Race Officer John Stallard aboard Destiny (Bruce & June Matthews) laid a weather mark near the south-east shore and a leeward mark close to Castlepark. Two W/L races were sailed in boisterous conditions.

Squibs

The Squib fleet was led by Allegro (C Dunne & R Gill) who scored two firsts, Outlaw (I Travers & K O’Riordan) scored two seconds followed by Flora (B Nash & B Tullier) and Sensation (D & B Cudmore) who both scored a third each.

Lasers & Mixed Dinghies

Dorothy Matthews won the first race with Robert McGarvey second and Daniel Ackerlind third - all sailing Lasers. The second race, in more difficult conditions, was won by Dorothy Matthews with Kevin Daly second in a Flying Fifteen.

Toppers

Race one saw Hannah Ackerlind score a first with Rachel Ackerlind second - the positions were reversed in race two. Francesca Lewis got a third in both races.

It will all start again next Sunday 3rd March at 1100 HRS.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
