The International 2.4mR one-person keelboat Irish National Championships was cancelled this morning in Kinsale, County Cork writes Bob Bateman
It was initially postponed by Race Officer Jack Roy by one hour but after going to sea and observing the sea state in the ebb tide a further decision was taken to cancel for the day.
The 10-boat fleet will have a first gun tomorrow at 0955 with a four-race schedule.
The boat is primarily used for racing and the class holds highly competitive national events in many countries. In some countries, it features mainly as a class for sailors with a disability.
The 2.4mR is ideal for adapted sailing since the sailor does not move in the boat, and everything is adjustable from right in front of the sailor. Both hand-steering and foot-steering are possible.
