Ellida Wins Cork Harbour Class One

2nd September 2011
Ellida Wins Cork Harbour Class One

The fifth race in the Royal Cork O'Leary Insurances sailing League was a quiet affair weather wise in Cork Harbour last night writes our Cork Harbour Correspondent. The highlight of the evening was watching the 92,000 tonne Cruise Ship Costa Deliziosa passing East of the fleet (heading South out the harbour after her visit to Cobh) during the race start sequence.

The breeze came from a Southerly direction at 6 to 10 knots. The start was about 1 and a half hours before High Water.  The light winds and strong spring tide made the course more interesting.  The Race Officer Mel Collins set a nice course for all Classes and again managed to get everyone home before sunset!

1st in White Sail IRC Ian Hickey's Granada 38 "Cavatina"
