Monkstown Bay Sailing Club began their season in Cork Harbour on Tuesday night with the first race of the May League.

Thirteen dinghies raced in Class 1. The race was won by Brian Jones and Gary Frost, sailing a 505. Second in an ILCA 7 Laser was Richard Harrington, and third was Brendan Dwyer in another ILCA 7.

Four boats raced in Class 2, which was won by Lucy O’Connell and Kate O’Connor, sailing an RS Feva XL. Second, also in a Feva XL, were Daisy and Ruby Duggan and third, Tom and Tim O’Connor in a Mirror dinghy.

It was a pleasant evening for the introductory night, unlike Wednesday night when sailing at Cove SC and Kinsale YC was called off due to wind conditions.
