Baltimore Sailing Club Wins Royal Cork's Inaugural Inter Club Cup

#The inaugural RCYC Inter Club Cup was sailed in Cork last Saturday. Event organiser Nicholas O'Leary and his team with Race Officer Bryan Hassett set up two parallel race courses with an exclusion zone between the race areas. Racing took place in an eight to twelve knot north easterly breeze off the Curlane Bank near the entrance to Cork Harbour. Match racing in 1720's with adult crews took place on the northern course and team racing in Fireflys with youth crews took place on the southern course.

After a series of round robins two semi finals and a final were sailed on both match and team racing courses. Racing was very close with the finals going to the last race in the "best of three" finals format. After some very tense racing Baltimore Sailing Club came out on top in both team and match racing finals.

Firefly: Darragh McCormack, Rosa Lyden, Eoin Lyden, Florence Lyden.

1720: Peter O'Leary, Youen, Jacob, Maria Coleman, Tom Hegarty.
