Malahide Cruiser Regatta Success

24th July 2012
Malahide Cruiser Regatta Success

#myc – Malahide Yacht Club's annual Cruiser Regatta last Saturday was deemed a success by the 30 crews competing in ideal conditions. Steady southerly winds and a flat sea prevailed for the two-race series, with J/24s and Puppeteers racing on windward-leeward courses while Cruisers 1, 2, 3 and White Sails did triangular courses, set by race officer Brian McDowell.

The combined Class 1 & 2 fleet was won by Pat Kelly's 'Storm' (HYC & Rush) while local boat 'Goyave' (Russell Camier/Colm Fitzpatrick) took the honours in Class 3 on IRC (with two wins) and also finished runner-up to Michael Marr's 'Sunchaser' (HYC) on ECHO.

Richard McAllister's 'Force Five' from Howth won the White Sails class on IRC and Malahide boat 'Turnabout' (David Haisley & others) headed the ECHO rankings.

In the one-design classes, Emmet Dalton's 'Jebus' headed the J/24 fleet while Neil Murphy's 'Yellow Peril' was top boat in the Puppeteer division.
