Royal Cork's weekly league racing is underway with some fine sailing breezes to get the first races of the season underway last Thursday and Friday.
Among the fleet of mixed keelboats is a 'Cork300' branded RCYC 1720 sportsboat marking 300 years of club activity in Cork Harbour.
As Afloat's WM Nixon points out here the sheer joy of sailing re-asserting itself in Cork Harbour is a tonic for all involved at Crosshaven.
As well as sportsboats, other one-design keelboats that included an Etchells, there was a good turnout of cruisers for the round the cans racing format.
