Royal St. George Yacht Club (RSt.GYC) Regatta Results for Saturday, July 5 2014

7th July 2014
Raptor (Denis Hewitt) was third in Cruisers One IRC at the Frank Keane BMW Regatta

#rsgyc – What was expected to be a bumper entry of 180–boats for the Frank Keane BMW Royal St.George Yacht Club Regatta on Saturday ended up breaking the 200 boats mark, leading club officers to declare it the biggest entry in the club's 176–year history. What's more, the event also took in a dedicated White Sails Challenge, a new novice try boating initiative plus some exotic new sportsboats and dinghies within its fleets.

In total, there were 28 classes racing producing a combined fleet of 202 boats. Full results for each fleet are downloadable below as html files.

The Royal St. George Yacht Club's own Boomerang, a Beneteau First 36.7 sailed by the Kirwan Family, were winners in both IRC and ECHO handicap of Cruisers one, one of the biggest IRC classes with 11 boats.

In the dinghy classes, a brand new Irish Moth design sailed by John Chambers finished joint third in the foiling class that was won by Rory Fitzpatrick.
