Four RS fleets totalling 25 boats raced the RS Southern Championships at the refurbished Sand Quay at Monkstown Bay Sailing Club in Cork Harbour at the weekend.

“A very successful first regional event of the year for the RS Class and a great way to get back into tactical racing,” said Club Commodore Sandy Rimmington. “Officers of the Day and mark-laying teams did a fantastic job in difficult conditions to give great racing.”

The Monkstown Commodore crewed the winning 400 Class boat which was helmed by MBSC club member Joan Downey.

An MBSC/RCYC combination, Robbie O’Sullivan and Phil McGlade were second and Govan Berridge and David Coleman from Killaloe SC third.

The 200 class winners were Tadgh Donnelly and Meabh Ryan from the National Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire; Monkstown Bay’s Richie Harrington and Sandy O’Brien were second and Alex and Martin Roe from Galway City SC third.

Aero Class single-handed winner was Daragh Sheridan from Howth YC, with Monkstown’s Robert Howe second and Noel Butler NYC third.

The Fevas Class winners were the St. Mawes SC visitors from Truro, Cornwall, Kitty and Lily O’Halloran. The host club’s Tony Geraghty and Tara Kennedy were second and another MBSC boat third – Afric Barry, Siofra Deasy and Even Barry combining to crew.
