With just over one week to go to the 2018 Royal Cork Yacht Club Autumn Series, things are heating up with good entries from all the south coast clubs including Kinsale Yacht Club, the newly founded Great Island SC, Monkstown Bay SC, Waterford Harbour SC and Schull Harbour SC all with entries in so far.
This year's series will be raced over five Sundays starting on the 30th of September and finishing on the 28th of October, there will be a good mix of laid courses and coastal style courses across the series as well as racing for 1720's on their own course with 3 race per day for the 1720's.

The new U25 Academy will also have two boats entered in the 1720 class.
North Sails Debriefing Sessions
We will be running the North Sails video training sessions again this year, with Nigel Young and Maurice O Connell, they will be out on the water videoing the action and relaying their findings when we get ashore after racing, Last year this really helped people improve boat handling, crew work, sail trim and all aspects of race and time management. To allow time for the video to be edited properly and not to delay people after racing there will be no debrief on week one and RCYC will then be doing the first week's racing after racing on week two and so on.
This year will see the introduction of the weekly awards (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly) these fun awards will be presented at the debrief sessions each week, based on the findings of the on–the–water coaches.
With three race areas and top quality race management with Race Officers Peter Crowley, Barry Rose and David O Brien, it promises to be another great series. Please get your entry in now to ensure you don't miss out.
