Clases one, two and 1720’s raced inside Cork harbour today but classes three, four and whitesails was cancelled in what was to be an exhilarating but challenging penultimate day of Royal Cork Yacht Club's CH Marine Autumn Series writes Bob Bateman.

Winds of up to thirty knots greeted competitors and wipe outs and gear failure for some were the order of the day.

Class one were given a harbour course of No5, No11, EF1 no. 20, EF2 No11 no14, EF2 , No11, No 5 and Finish.

Class Two had a course in the same area but shorter. Meanwhile the enthusiastic competitors supplemented from the fleets not sailing had windward leeward courses across the Channel.

In a departure from the normal Autumn Regattas the final day’ racing will be held next Sunday with a Gala prizegiving dinner that evening.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
