Tux Wins First Race of Royal Cork's 'O'Leary Insurance' League

5th August 2011
Tux Wins First Race of Royal Cork's 'O'Leary Insurance' League
The first race in the Royal Cork O'Leary Insurances League" was a bit cooler than previous Thursdays but it was still a pleasant one for the Cork harbour cruiser fleet writes our Cork Harbour Correspondent.

The breeze was coming from the North West at 12 knots with gusts up to 20 knots. The start was about 3 hours after low water.

The youngest (at the age of three) Race Officer in the Royal Cork was Alex O'Connell, ably assisted by his Father Kieran. They set an excellent course (No.99). Which kept the crews busy with all points of sailing. The fleet was a bit lighter than usual because a number of boats were competing in Calves Week.

Here is last night's results summary:

1st in White Sail IRC Ian Hickey's Granada 38 "Cavatina"
1st in White Sail Echo Micheal Lynch's Sun Odyssey 32i "Lady T"
1st in Class 3 IRC Paul Murray's Impala "Prometheus"
1st in Class 3 Echo  John & Fiona Murphy's Impala "Fastbuck"
1st in Class 2 IRC Ted Crosbie's X302 "No Excuse"
1st in Class 2 Echo Leonard Donnery's Nicholson 33 "No Gnomes"
1st in Class 1 IRC & Echo Mary O'Keefe's X332 "Tux"
